Honor, a smartphone brand owned by Chinese tech giant Huawei Technologies, has launched the Honor Vision smart TV series. It’s the first product to be powered by newly announced HarmonyOS. Named as Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro, the new products are being called Smart Screen devices by the company, but they are essentially Smart TVs. The Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro comes with a 55-inch 4K UHD screen and is powered by quad-core Honghu 818 chip. Both models will go on sale in China from today and will be available in the Indian market by the end of 2019.
The Honor Vision is priced at 3,799 Yuan (approx. Rs. 38,200) and the Honor Vision Pro with the pop-up camera is priced at 4,799 Yuan (approx. Rs. 48,200). It is already up for pre-orders via Vmall.
“We design our products from a global competence perspective — from designing it in Paris, acquiring camera and optics input from Japan, manufacturing processes from Germany and software from India R&D facility,” the company said.
The Honor Vision smart TV Series uses a Honghu 818 Intelligent Display chipset, which carries an image-processing engine, and is equipped with seven image-processing technologies, including motion estimate and motion compensation (MEMC). The chipset is designed to enhance and optimise image resolution, contrast and colour performance through multiple algorithms.
The Honor Vision TV and Vision TV Pro come with a 55-inch display that has a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, 400nits brightness and 178-degree viewing angle. Both TVs are powered by the28mm-based Honghu 818 quad-core intelligent chipset with two Cortex-A53, two Cortex-A53 cores and 600MHz Mali-G51MP4 GPU. It has 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage on the Honor Vision TV and 32GB storage on the Vision TV Pro.
The front panel comes with TUV Rheinland certification for protection against blue light. The display is housed inside a metal frame and offers a screen-to-body ratio of 94 percent. It equips Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation, High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDR), Super-Resolution, Noise Reduction, Dynamic Contrast Improvement, Auto Colour Management and Local Dimming.
As mentioned earlier the TVs will run on HarmonyOS 1.0, which is the latest and Huawei’s first self-developed OS.
The Pro model comes with a 1080p pop-up camera which can be used for video calls. There’s a HiSilicon Hi1103 Wi-Fi chip with support for 160MHz bandwidth, 2.4G/5GHz dual-frequency and offering download speeds of up to 1.7Gbps. Other connectivity options include three HDMI ports, Bluetooth v5, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, one USB 3 port, an AV port, DTMB, s/PDIF and ethernet. The TVs are bundled with a remote and can be used with a smartphone as well.
The product’s Wi-Fi chipset, the HiSilicon Hi1103, is claimed to be the world’s first chipset to support a 160MHz bandwidth with a download rate of up to 1.7Gbps, and 1.7 times faster than the industry average, enabling smoother and more stable video playback, especially for 4K HD video.
The Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro can act as a Smart Home hub and use elements of Magic UI 3.0 and EMUI 10 for AI capabilities. Smart Screen devices can also show weather information, track packages, and a lot more. Additionally, the devices come with Honor Magic Link support, which will allow the users to remotely control their Honor Vision via their smartphone.
