It Seems Like Huawei Will Continue Including 1080p Displays In Their High-End Smartphones, No 2K Yet

Huawei is on the rise, they announced a bunch of great devices last year and managed to raise their profits significantly. This China-based company is one of the biggest smartphone OEMs in that Asia country and they’ve been changing things up last year, which seems to have worked. They re-designed their Emotion UI to some extent, made it more user-friendly and better performing overall, and they did something similar with their devices. The company took a somewhat different approach to designing their smartphones and came up with some great looking devices, the Ascend Mate 7 is probably the best example here. This handset is made out of aluminum and it looks really great overall, performance is also great and the device just screams “premium”. Honor 6, Honor 6 Plus, and Ascend P7 also played a huge part in Huawei’s revenue last year.

This Chinese smartphone OEM criticised the use of quadHD displays in smartphones on several occasions, quite recently actually. The company basically thinks the use of 2K panels in today’s smartphones is completely unnecessary at this point and that the human eye cannot see the difference between the fullHD 1080p and quadHD panels. Well, Huawei apparently wants to make that as clean as possible considering their CEO, Yu Chengdong, was interviewed recently and once again said that he really doesn’t think it’s time for 2K panels just yet. What good is this information to us? Well, this basically means that P8 and Mate 8 handsets that the company will release this year will sport fullHD 1080p displays, not the 2K panels. Same thing can be said about some other high-end devices the company might release this year.

We’ve been discussing the smartphone screen resolution for quite some time now and the opinions definitely differ on this matter. I for one, do agree with Huawei, I’ve seen plenty of smartphones lately, various screen resolutions, and I really have to say that I don’t see the point in including 2K displays in today’s smartphones. I respect other opinions of course, even some of my colleagues disagree with me on this subject. Either way, it seems like Huawei’s handsets won’t be sporting 2K displays this year, at least that’s what we were able to gather from what the company’s CEO said.
