Richard Yu says the next Huawei phone will have 2K resolution because of VR
Today, Yu revealed that he has changed his mind about 2K screens mostly because of Virtual Reality. He says that 2K resolution is required for VR, and that he likes VR. With that circular reasoning, Yu says that Huawei's next phone will carry a 2K screen. Currently, no Huawei handset could use VR since the resolution tops out at 1080 x 1920. We should point out that this doesn't include the Huawei built Nexus 6P which did feature a 1440 x 2560 display. The recently released Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus both sport FHD resolution displays.
Yu also said that Huawei is working hard on a technological breakthrough. While the executive failed to pass along more information about this, our guess is that it has something to do with extending battery life on a phone with a 2K display.
