One of the big advantages of Huawei’s operating system Harmony OS is its versatility. In addition to smartphones and tablets, the Android alternative will also be used in the future on smartwatches, in cars or smart TVs. On Saturday, Huawei has delivered the first concrete example of this. The Honor Vision is a smart TV that will be the first device to be equipped with Harmony OS.
As XDA Developers reports, the Honor Vision has a 55-inch display with 4K resolution, a viewing angle of 178 degrees and a certificate of TÜV Rheinland on low levels of blue light. The TV is only 6.9 millimeters thick at its narrowest point and has a retractable front camera with full HD resolution for video calls. In addition to a basic version of the Smart TV, there will also be a Pro version with a stronger sound system. Both models can be voice-operated.
For the time being, the Honor Vision will only be launched in China. Harmony OS has been provided with a “magazine-like” user interface for the device. The Honor Magic Link will allow you to use smartphones as a remote control. In addition, TV programs can thus be shown on the smartphone display. Conversely, you can also display smartphone content on the Smart TV.
Prices and availability
The Honor Vision will be sold in China for the equivalent of 476 euros. The Honor Vision Pro comes to the equivalent of 601 euros. As Engadget reports, the device will ship from 15 August. Whether it is ever offered in other countries is unclear.
