With a PC monitor simply called “Display 23.8” “, Huawei has introduced its first screen, which is named after the 23.8-inch diagonal on which an IPS panel displays 1920 × 1080 pixels (Full HD) The rest of the data sheet reads unspectacularly.
The 23.8 “display could, however, be a first step towards new sources of revenue for Huawei after the trade war between the USA and China and the resulting sanctions led to a slump in smartphone sales. Huawei can hardly buy components from abroad For monitors, all components – from panels to control electronics – are available from Chinese manufacturers.
Huawei specifies 72 percent coverage of the NTSC color space and a typical brightness of 250 cd / m². The frame rate is 60 Hertz, the contrast ratio is 1000: 1, which is typical for IPS. HDMI and VGA (D-Sub) are available as image inputs – there is no USB hub. The power pack is external. Thanks to the VESA bracket, the screen can optionally be attached to a monitor arm.
Entry-level model for the home office
The bottom line is that the 23.8 “display is an entry-level monitor that should score points in the home office. The recommended retail price of around 160 euros seems high. Huawei’s own store offers a pre-order discount of 30 euros until March 21, 2021. Delivery is scheduled to begin on March 23, 2021.
Other 24-inch monitors with IPS or VA technology and full HD resolution start at just under 100 euros. If you filter the price comparison for narrow display frames, such as a “screen-to-body ratio” from 90 percent, it starts at 110 euros.
