Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review reports that Chinese cellular giant Huawei is working on 5G televisions. The report says that the displays could also be 8K capable. If correct, it could be a TV industry first.

Huawei, already mired in deep controversy over alleged security concerns, makes its own chipsets for cellular use. Despite now being banned in the US the firm’s cellular products overtook Apple in 2017 in terms of sales.

Electronics giant Sony has confirmed the next iteration of its PlayStation games console will support 8K. Sony, and South Korean rival Samsung, also make 8K displays.
