If you remind last year, Richard Yu Huawei CEO said that he is not in willing for QHD screens on mobiles as he believes that it is complicated for users to differentiate between QHD and Full HD display. However it seems that now Richard has changed his mind.
The cause is Virtual Reality (VR), he said in a post in Weibo “Last year I would surely not buy a 2K resolution smartphone as the power utilization was lofty and the distinction to my eyes absent. But now I have changed my mind and my subsequently phone will be 2K as I like VR.
Last year the CEO shared his experience regarding Mi Note Pro handset; being first hand user it appeared that he is minimalist pleased with the mobile’s battery life and performance. The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is features a 6-inch QHD display and has a 3,000mAh battery.
This is exactly where Richard Yu’s rancor with the smartphone lies. As per a post he made on Weibo, the CEO thinks that the resolution is excess for a display of this dimension and the human eye has complexity distinctive between QHD and Full HD at this scale. He prolonged to condemn Xiaomi’s hardware of choice by saying that the power-starving, high resolution screens only reduce battery life.
It is worth talk about that by 2K, he perhaps means QHD as the previous has never been a mobile resolution. In case if you have missed, Huawei’s change of heart comes almost a week a week after the company launched its own VR headset.
