One technology brand that has gained huge popularity in the West in recent years is Huawei. This company based in Shenzhen, China, is recognized for its devices that have a good presence in the world market, especially those in the mobile sector. The company appears to be looking to expand, as unofficial information reveals it could launch a console that rivals the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.
We know this thanks to information that comes from the Weibo social network. As Huawei Central points out , rumors reveal that the company would be growing significant interest in the video game market and that it would even launch a console that would be similar to Sony and Microsoft systems in terms of function. Beyond this, the details are almost nil. The rumors also don’t provide a possible release date, but it would take some time.
HUAWEI WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN THE VIDEO GAME MARKET
According to the information, that would not be Huawei’s only attempt to gain a bit of the gaming market, since this year it would launch a laptop focused on video games, a project that it has been preparing for some time and that is rumored to be announced last year, but in the end it didn’t happen.
It is important to mention that Huawei has had some problems with the United States government and since 2020 North American companies have been prohibited from making alliances with the company, which is why users of mobile phones manufactured by the Chinese company lost support from Google Play and App Store, for example. Therefore, games from video game companies such as Electronic Arts and Activision cannot be found on these mobiles, making it impossible to play popular titles, such as FIFA and Call of Duty , according to information from Express.co .
Although this did not prevent Huawei from continuing to market its devices in the West, the Chinese company had to launch the AppGallery, a platform with applications that offer a lot of content with the exception of some applications from US companies.
Something important to say is that it is not known if the console would reach the West or if it would only be available in China, but it is very likely that the latter will happen, since, if the company launched its hypothetical console, it would not have the support of games either. very American who are very popular in the West. In case the system reaches other regions; however, it would be interesting to see how Huawei would try to enhance the scope of the project and win the interest of the market largely dominated by Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo.
As in other similar situations, we invite you to take this information as something unofficial, since so far Huawei has not shared details about it.
