Huawei Will Launch World’s 1st 5G TV
Nikkei Asian Review has received information that Huawei will launch world’s 1st 5G television. This will have an ultra-high resolution of 8K, and will support full 5G connectivity.

As per Nikkei Asian Review, this unique 5G TV won’t require an optical fiber or a traditional cable connection to work, but it will act as a router hub for other electronic gadgets in the home. This means, that via some futuristic technology, this 5G TV will transmit and broadcast 5G connection.
The other major aspect of this TV is the resolution of 8K, which is the most advanced optical technology in the world having 16-times more resolution than any other TV. Samsung’s 8K TVs (without 5G) sells for $4999.
