Huawei sets up team for VR products

HUAWEI Technologies, the No. 1 smartphone vendor in China, has formed a research team of more than 400 engineers to work on virtual reality products, which will be available to consumers this month.

Huawei’s first-generation VR products, featuring 360-degree view, low image delay for immersive experience and WeChat messages, are expected to boost sales of its flagship smartphone models like the P9. Huawei expects to sell 140 million smartphones this year.

Huawei has set up a team of “400 to 500” engineers on VR products, compared with 1,000 engineers at HTC and 30 at Xiaomi. Huawei plans to focus on “mobile VR” products as accessories of high-end smartphones.

Huawei will give developers favorable policies, set up a VR fund and make demonstrations at its 400 outlets nationwide to lift VR awareness.
