The Chinese company Huawei is preparing to launch its brand's desktop and screen products, including curved screens for the gaming market, with the aim of competing with emerging players, such as Xiaomi.

The main reason for Huawei entering this market may be the US ban, or the desire to compete with Xiaomi.

Wang Yinfeng, head of Huawei's tablet and personal computer production line, confirmed at the Huawei Full Connect 2020 conference: Huawei will launch its brand's screen products, and will also launch desktop products for consumers in the future.

According to a new report, the company will use external sources to produce standard (non-curved) screens, relying on BOEVT, a manufacturer affiliated with BOE Technology Group, and the first batch of products includes 3 screens.

In addition, Huawei will contract with TPV Technology to manufacture the curved screen for the gaming market, and the initial demand is about 1 million units, and the screens come in 27 inches and 34 inches.

Analysts said: Huawei’s ambitious entry into the screen market this time is in line with growing market speculation that Huawei is also preparing to enter the desktop market.

According to previous reports, Huawei's first desktop model will be the Qingyun W510.

This computer uses a processor (Kunpeng 920 3211K) manufactured according to 7 nm technology from HiSilicon.

This computer works with (UOS), a Chinese operating system jointly developed by several companies, such as: (China Electronics Group) and (Wuhan ShenZhiDuo Technology).

The computer contains up to 8 GB of random access memory (DDR4-2666), a drive with a capacity of 256 GB of type (SSD), along with a separate graphics card (AMD Radeon R7430), and a power supply of 180 watts.

In addition, computer-generated images of Huawei's desktop computers appeared on the company's official website, and these images are mainly consistent with media reports.

People familiar with the matter also said: The Huawei desktop is manufactured by Foxconn's Hong Fu Jin Precision Industry.

Analysts expect that Huawei's desktop computers will be the first to be offered to important user groups, such as enterprises, and are expected to be introduced in 2020.

It is reported that Huawei launched in September last year the motherboard for the desktop computer working with a processor (Kunpeng 920), as this motherboard is compatible with memory, hard disks, network cards and other devices currently prevalent.
