Sony and Microsoft Should Be Worried: Huawei Prepares Its Own Console and Gaming Laptops

Who says that only PlayStations and Xboxes have to dominate the gaming world? Nintendo brought a powerful alternative in 2017 with its Switch device, but Sony and Microsoft still had the upper-hand. But suddenly and out of nowhere, Huawei seems ready to bring even more interesting alternatives to the gaming market.

GizChina reveals that Chinese sources inform that Huawei prepares the release of a full-fledged gaming console that will likely become a tough competitor for the top PlayStation and Xbox consoles. But the Chinese manufacturer won’t stop there, as it will also release a line of gaming laptops, according to the same source.

Doing great on smartphones

Huawei is mostly known for creating smartphones, and it does it very well. The company even managed to surpass the leader Samsung when it comes to the number of phones sold over a span of several months, which is amazing.

Huawei already has some interesting laptops, as it brought in early 2021 the new MateBook X Pro, MateBook 13, and 14 gadgets that are packing 11th Gen Intel processors.

Ren Zhengfei, who is the founder and CEO of Huawei, confirmed what all the fans of the Chinese manufacturer are hoping for:

We hope the new US administration would have an open policy for the benefit of American firms and the economic development of the United States,

He added:

We still hope that we can buy large volumes of American materials, components, and equipment so that we can all benefit from China’s growth.

At the end of last year, both Sony and Microsoft released next-gen consoles: PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, respectively. Both machines feature capabilities that weren’t seen before on gaming consoles, and it will be exciting to see how future Huawei consoles will compete.
