Huawei has announced on the 9th of August 2019 about its first HarmonyOS-powered devices; a pair of smart TVs called the Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro; which will go on sale in China next week around the 15th of August 2019, reports Gadgets360.
Huawei’s HarmonyOS in Honor Vision, Vision Pro specifications, features –
The Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro come with a 55-inch 4K (3840×2160 pixels) display with NTSC 87 percent wide colour gamut, 16:9 aspect ratio, 60Hz refresh rate, 400nits brightness, and 178 degree viewing angles. The display also have German TUV Rheinland low blue-eye protection. The Smart TVs have a three-side bezel-less full-view design that with just 6.9mm thickness at the thinnest point and a diamond-patterned rear.
In terms of hardware, the TVs include Huawei’s Honghu 818 chipset, an octa-core processor which will process the images seen on screen. The screens will be able to provide viewers with information about the weather and can track packages, and can be controlled with a smartphone.
Eventually, HarmonyOS will run on everything from wearables to PCs and tablets, but for now Huawei says its focus is on “smart screens” like this. Although the company has indicated that the OS is ready to run on phones, it has said that it plans to continue using Android for its own smartphones for the time being.
There are some differences between the two models: the Honor Vision Pro also comes with an adjustable pop-up camera and six far-field microphones, which can be used for video calling, with a resolution of 1080p and 30fps. The Honor Vision Pro also comes with six 10W speakers, while the Honor Vision only comes with four.

HarmonyOS in Honor Vision, Honor Vision Pro – its price & Availability –
The Honor Vision is priced at CNY 3,799 (roughly Rs. 38,200) and the Honor Vision Pro with the pop-up camera is priced at CNY 4,799 (roughly Rs. 48,200). It is already up for pre-orders via Vmall, and will go on sale in China from August 15.
You shouldn’t expect the TV to come to the west anytime soon. Huawei previously said it intends to focus its efforts with HarmonyOS on just the Chinese market at first, meaning it’s unlikely that the device will be available worldwide at launch.
