If you haven’t already heard, the much anticipated Huawei’s blend of operating system turns out to be one running a TV. At least it is for now. The TV, Honor Vision Smart TV, is also the recipient of Huawei-developed “intelligent” chipsets, which includes Honghu 818 Intelligent Display Chipset, an AI Camera NPU chip[set and a “flagship-level” WiFi chipset.
Honor Vision is a 4K TV that offers 178 degree viewing angle, 400 nits brightness, a whopping six 10W built-in speakers, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, Hi-Res Wireless Audio, and Honor Magic-link that basically lets you use your phone to control virtually all aspect of the TV functioning. Yes. That also includes casting.
The TV does video calls too and for that purpose, it has a built in pop up camera that only appears when it is required. The TV is also a home hub of sort, serving as the center for all your IoT. The display is TÜV Rheinland certified for low Blue light emission and it, like so many Android TV in the market, has all the visual entertainment you will ever need (in China).
Honghu, btw, is a quad core SoC packing 2 A73 and 2 A53 processors, and 4x Mali G51 quad core GPU. The chipset is backed by 2 GB of RAM and a choice of 16 GB or 32 GB onboard storage.
All these features are packed inside gorgeous near bezel-less design, but somehow with an unusual profile. How unusual? Well, how about this unusual:
Now, tell me that isn’t the weirdest profile you ever seen on a TV set…
Anywho, Honor Vision Smart TV is currently selling in China with a starting price of 3,299 Chinese yuan which works out to be around $540. And mind you, it is a 55-inch class UHD TV that we are talking about here.
