Despite Huawei announcing its HarmonyOS, the company said it will be sticking with Google’s Android for smartphones while it can. Instead, the new OS will be used for smart TVs and other “smart screens” of the sort. And the first smart TV to use it happens to be the HONOR Vision.
Announced late last month, the HONOR Vision measures in at 55 inches, with support for 4K HDR. The earlier announcement also detailed the HiSilicon Hongjun 818 chipset. New information this time around includes the Vision’s 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Previous reports also pointed at the existence of a 1080p pop-up camera, but that is only found on the Pro model, which also has twice the amount of internal storage. On the software front, this version of HarmonyOS allows the Vision to act as a multi-device hub for other HarmonyOS devices that come out in the future.
This new announcement also came with the official pricing for the HONOR Vision smart TV. The base model comes with a RMB3799 price (~RM2251) tag while the Pro version comes in at RMB4799 (~RM2843). Pre-orders are open, with the TV expected to be available starting 15 August. That said, there’s no word on the HONOR Vision leaving China’s shores.
