    On August 10th, Huawei announced the debut of the new HarmonyOS operating system in China, alongside the announcement of their first TV under the Honor sub-brand, which will use the new operating system. This new TV, which joins an increasingly crowded field of sets from other smartphone companies turning to the TV market, like Xiaomi, might signal a new phase in the competitive landscape, at least within China for now.

    On August 13th, 2019, the Office of the US Trade Representative announced that it was delaying the implementation of new 10% tariffs on some products that had been scheduled to go into effect on September 1st. Of the $300 billion tranche that was originally to be affected, CE products were some of the most prominent new inclusions, and surely would have impacted prices during the upcoming holiday season. The categories included in the delay entail smartphones, Notebook PCs, tablet PCs, game consoles and desktop monitors, along with other popular holiday shopping goods. However, TVs were not included on the list, and remain to be subject to the additional 10% tariff on September 1st. Of course, this could change.
