At the ongoing India Mobile Congress, Chinese smartphone maker Honor has launched its much anticipated ‘Vision’ smart TV that comes with a pop-up camera and runs on HarmonyOS user interface.
Apart from a pop-up camera, the Honor Vision smart TV comes with six far-field microphones, two extra 10W speakers and a 55-inch 4K (3840×2160 pixels) display with NTSC 87 per cent wide colour gamut, 16:9 aspect ratio, 60Hz refresh rate, 400nits brightness, and 178 degree viewing angles.
The TV is powered by the Honghu 818 quad-core SoC clubbed with Mali-G51 GPU and offers 2GB of RAM. Other specifications Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, three HDMI ports, one USB 3.0 port, and one Ethernet port.
Additionally, the TV’s display also supports HDR playback and MEMC (Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation) technology to reduces blur. The device also comes with Magic-link control feature supporting multi-device interaction that allows users to share content including pictures, make calls from their smartphones wirelessly. According to the company, the 6 far-field microphones can pick up audio even when the user is far away.
Honor also launched a ‘Pro’ version of the Vision TV that comes with 6×10 W speaker, a motorised pop-up camera and has 32GB of inbuilt storage. Other features including the display size, resolution are same as the standard variant.
While the standard variant is priced at CNY 3,799 (Rs 38,000 approx.), the Pro version costs CNY 4,799 (Rs 48,000 approx.). The availability in India is not yet announced.
Once available in India, the Honor Vision TV will go head to head with the recently launched OnePlus TV and Mi TV that aims to offer appealing features at compelling prices.
