Huawei launched the Huawei P9 recently, but for some reason the company had decided to go with a Full HD display. The company is set to roll out more devices in the next few months including the Huawei P9 Lite, P9 Max, Honor V8, 7P, and a MediaPad T2 10.0 Pro tablet.


One of the things that Huawei doesn't usually change in specs of its products is the display since differences are not very noticeable to the ordinary eyes. Richard Yu, Huawei CEO, even said QHD displays are not necessary. This time, Yu changed his tone and said that the next smartphone will have a 2K display. He noted one reason only: VR Headsets. Yup, Huawei is jumping into the virtual reality world soon. We're assuming that Huawei will enter the virtual realm with a bang this year since the company recently introduced its own VR device.

According to Yu, he also said that power consumption was the reason as to why Huawei opted to keep pushing Full HD displays. "Last year I would certainly not buy a 2K device as the power consumption was high and the difference to my eyes non-existent. But now I have changed my mind and my next phone will be 2K as I like VR!"

Officially called as the Huawei VR, we can expect the the device to usher Huawei into a new field where display quality really matters. The VR only supports Full HD for now but we're guessing the next version will have a better display. Full HD or 1080p can be used but 2K is the best for VR. Because of this development, we can expect the next premium flagship phone from Huawei to have higher resolution, E.g: Huawei Mate 9, Huawei P10, Huawei Mate S2, etc.
