When you’ve conquered smartphones, where do you go next? If you’re Huawei, according to a report from Chinese website ITHome, you set your sights on the TV market.

ITHome reports that Huawei could be ready to launch not one but two TV models measuring 55 and 65 inches as early as next month. The displays for both models are said to be manufactured by BOE, Huawei’s longtime collaborator on displays.

Huawei previously indicated little interest in the market, saying it wouldn’t do traditional TVs. This seems to have changed now, with ITHome’s source claiming a desire to move 10 million units annually.

The report is pretty light on other details, though.

On the face of it, TVs are a somewhat easy market for a manufacturer currently making smartphones, tablets and more to jump into – the basic building blocks are there, and the company could even use Google’s Android TV OS to get them started.

Unsurprisingly, Huawei offered no comment to ITHome on the reports.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

Well they can already monitor your Huawei phone, Huawei home internet router, and Huawei fitness tracker/watch, so the obvious next step was to monitor your TV based viewing. I’m now waiting for them to try and sneak through a home ‘security’ system like Amazon so they can monitor you all the time like The Truman Show movie.
