Huawei is reportedly working on gaming console and notebook

According to rumors, Huawei is planing to enter the gaming hardware market. It will start small with a gaming laptop. It was already on its way to do that with the Honor Hunter V700, but then the geopolitical situation led to Honor (phones, laptops and all) being sold off. The Huawei gaming laptop is expected this year.

Huawei had launched the Game Center last year. The Game Center is a gaming hub built on top of Huawei Media Services for Android. Despite its spat with Tencent Games which were removed from the platform, Huawei still has plenty of Android games that can be played.

Last year, before the sales of the Honor brand, the Honor Hunter V700 Gaming laptop was launched which technically is a product under Huawei’s belt. However, since the Honor brand has been sold off, the same cannot be said about the gaming laptop. Huawei was also expected to launch a branded gaming notebook but that didn’t happen.

Talking of the gaming console, this is the first time we are getting wind of a Huawei-branded gaming console. What makes it even interesting is the comparison with the Xbox and PlayStation. That means we are looking at a high-end console. It is possible the console will be developed in partnership with gaming software developers like Tencent games so as to get popular games inside the console.
