If you already have your own system unit, keyboard, and mouse but need a monitor, you can now purchase the Huawei monitor on its own. Chinese tech blog, ITHome, reports that the monitor is now listed on JD.com for ¥899 (~$137).
That price gets you a monitor with a 23.8-inch screen, 1920 x 1080 resolution, and eye protection. It also has a 178° viewing angle, a 90% screen-to-body ratio, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a 72% NTSC color gamut.
The Huawei AD80HW monitor, as it is called, has a full-screen design with top and side bezels measuring just 5.7mm in thickness. The screen can be tilted upwards and downwards to a certain degree. For connectivity, there is an HDMI port and a VGA port.
The monitor is the first from Huawei but will definitely not be the last. We expect the Chinese manufacturer to announce more models with larger screens and even high refresh rates in the coming year.
Huawei will be joining Xiaomi in the computer display market. The latter has announced a handful of monitors in the past year. Its first gaming monitor was announced in October 2019 – a 34-inch curved gaming monitor with a resolution of 3440 x 1440, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1500R curvature. Xiaomi’s monitors are also sold outside China; while there is no announcement that Huawei will sell its monitor in other countries, we won’t rule out the possibility.
Another Chinese manufacturer that is expected to make its own entry into the computer display market is Honor, a former Huawei subsidiary. A render of an Honor monitor leaked back in October but it is yet to be announced.
