In China, there was a presentation of HONOR Vision — the first TV brand and the first device running the new operating system HarmonyOS. It is tightly integrated with the manufacturer's ecosystem and offers several unique features not available from competitors.
The TV received a 55-inch display made by MEMC (Motion Estimation and Motion Compensation) technology. It has an Ultra HD 4K resolution, a maximum brightness of 400 nits, a 178° viewing angle, and support for extended hdr10 dynamic range. The screen occupies 94% of the front panel area, and the thickness of the device in the thinnest place is only 6.9 mm.
In the top frame hidden extendable camera working on the same principle as in the recently introduced HONOR 9X. The camera supports video recording in 1080p and is used for video calls. The TV is connected to the user's smartphone and allows both receiving incoming calls and making outgoing calls. In addition, the face detection function is supported, which allows you to limit the child's access to the TV. In the lower frame is built a small led indicator, shimmering in different colors and notifying about the TV.
Special attention was paid to the integration of HONOR Vision with the company's ecosystem. With the support of Link Turbo technology, the user can stream content from the smartphone screen to the TV with minimal delay. You can transfer photos, videos, games (1080p@60fps) and just a desktop phone. In addition, the smartphone serves as a remote control or even copies the TV interface, which greatly simplifies navigation through the content. For example, you can search for movies and TV shows in an online cinema. After the playback starts, the buttons for rewind, stop and volume control appear on the device screen.
The TV comes with a special magic Link NFC sticker that can be attached to a Bluetooth remote control or any other surface. By touching it with your smartphone, you can instantly transfer content from its screen to the TV.
HONOR Vision is built on the basis of specially developed chipset Honghu 818. It includes a Central Quad-core processor (2 x A73 + 2 x A53) and a Quad-core Mali-G51 graphics accelerator. The processor supports artificial intelligence technology to automatically adjust the sound and image so that the owner always gets the maximum quality.
The new operating system HarmonyOS allows you to use HONOR Vision as the center of the smart home, providing access to the management of connected equipment.
TV from HONOR will be available in two versions: basic and advanced. Differences between them are insignificant. Vision Pro has six 10W speakers each, a built-in 32GB drive and a retractable camera. The usual Vision received four speakers of 10 W and 16 GB ROM.
Honor Vision will go on sale in China on August 15 at a price of $538 for the basic version and $680 for the Pro-model. The company has not yet announced plans to release the TV in other regions.
