Huawei has launched a new 65-inch OLED TV in China. The Huawei Vision Smart TV X65 ships with the company’s proprietary Hongmeng OS and not with Android OS. The smart TV’s price is set at RMB 24,999, which is around Rs 2,70,380 in India. The latest 4K OLED TV from Huawei comes an ultra-thin body with 24.9mm thickness. The company claims that its TV has a high screen to body ratio, meaning it features thin bezels.
The smart TV is powered by a home-brewed HiSilicon Hi3559C chipset, which is capable of AI computing using an NPU. It leverages advanced multichannel sensors, which helps adjusts the color and speed of the TV’s screen. Huawei says the television has a total of 14 speakers, that output up to 75W. There is also a pop-up camera on the top of the TV, which houses a 24-megapixel ultrawide-angle camera.
Interested buyers can get the latest Huawei smart TV from China. It is available for pre-orders in the country, and the shipping will start on April 26. Alongside the Huawei Vision X65, the brand also took the wraps off a refreshed version of the old Vision TV, which is called Vision V55i. This one comes with a price label of RMB 3,799 (approximately Rs 41,080).
The TV runs on Huawei’s proprietary HarmonyOS (also known as HongmengOS), is powered by the Honghu 898 processor that has been specially designed for OLED TVs, and has 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of internal storage. The RAM and storage are considerably higher than what we’re used to seeing on smart televisions, suggesting that Huawei could allow the storage on the Smart Screen X65 to be used for more than just apps and app data.
The type of apps available could also be more capable than what we typically see on smart televisions. There is also a 24-megapixel pop-up camera, which will let users use the TV for video calls and other camera-based apps.
At its price, the Huawei Smart Screen X65 is firmly priced in the premium category, similar to Huawei’s positioning with its top-end smartphones such as the recently launched Huawei P40 series. This is Huawei’s second major television launch after the Huawei Smart Screen V75 which was launched in late 2019. It’s unclear when or even if the new television will be launched in India or any other global markets outside of China.
