Huawei might be working on a game console, but will launch a gaming laptop first

11 February 2021
Honor unveiled its first gaming laptop, the Hunter V700, last year, but that brand is no longer a part of Huawei.

I'd be very happy to see competition in the console industry. I think it's very achievable for Huawei to compete with the ps5 and XSX even with weaker hardware. If only they require third party developers to allow users to have basic control over graphical settings. They would need to value developers and not take a chunk of their profits.. as well as make multiplayer free. they will barely profit at the beginning but i think they need to take that hit to get into this business.

Huawei is simply awesome....yes, I say a console that rivals ps4 and is more portable

I say build a portable gaming device that rivals the switch, but small and higher refresh screen.

An affordable gaming console that have similar specs to PlayStation 4 since PlayStation 5 is crazy expensive.

Good job Huawei... We need more competition

You need to be a big player, such as samsung or apple in order to have a chance at the console market. Come on, microsoft and sony monopolize the home console market, and nintendo does it with the portable one. A little chinese company that no one heard of in the last 2 years isn't gonna have any sort of succes, especially with no games on it. No american developers means very few games. It it's one thing americans are good at, it's games, and if you can't sign an agreement with them, bye bye any console ideeas. Bring the laptop in asap, I wanna see some new competitor there with new chips, but console will only make you lose more money than you've ever made

They should make an android gaming tablet with flagship specs and big battery to rival the Switch.

I'm down for the gaming laptop. But a console? Not so much

If it's affordable and easy to get then why won't it sell?

Their market share and presence has dropped considerably, and it might be difficult for them to gain huge number of customers since majority of console gamers are living in the US, where Huawei is already banned from selling products to.

The idea isn't bad, but there are so many key factors that play major roles into the success of this bold move. Yes they can definitely pull this off because they still have lots of money to invest, but successfully pulling it off doesn't immediately mean a successful run if majority of their target audience won't be able to access them in their country.

I seem to be the only one here that sees a win for huawei in the console dept, as long as there are Dope games on the platform why not?? Not like there’s a problem with PlayStation or Xbox, but why not another?🥴

  • JustSomeRandomGuy

they need actual games instead of Android games only. that is an Ouya part 2 in the making
