Huawei announced the launch of the first device that already brings the recent HarmonyOS on board and it is not a smartphone, but a TV from Honor and which is named Honor Vision. One of the most curious features of this television is the presence of a retractable camera, similar to the cameras that jump from the body of cell phones.
First of all, yes, the TV has exactly the same name as the Huawei subsidiary that makes smartphones and accessories for these devices. This time the brand created a 55-inch TV that offers more smart features than just access to streaming services.
It takes advantage of tools that are in HarmonyOS, Huawei’s operating system that can replace Android in smartphones and will be in several devices of the Chinese company – HarmonyOS has been around Huawei since 2012. One of them is the Full HD camera that comes out of the body from TV and that is able to recognize the user who is on the couch, track the position of the body in the environment and even the posture that the person is doing. In addition to monitoring the user, it can also be used for video calls.
In addition, Honor Vision uses an image sharing system between devices that promises to be 100 times faster than the Bluetooth connection, along with Huawei’s own Wi-Fi chip and which allows downloads at up to 1.7 Gbps – enough to download a 4K movie in a few seconds.
For this, the TV uses a Honghu 818 processor that works with eight cores, along with 2 GB of RAM, which deliver HDR and noise reduction in the images, in addition to a panel that offers local dimming, a feature that increases the contrast in screens that are not OLED. The screen resolution is 4K and there are two models, one with 16 GB and the other with 32 GB of internal memory.
The price suggested at launch is approximately US $ 680 (just over R $ 2,700) for the model with more memory and US $ 538 (almost R $ 2,200) for the version with half the internal space. The launch in China is scheduled for August 15 of this year, but as the trade war between Donald Trump and the Chinese government continues, the launch of this Honor Vision in American lands may not happen.
