After unveiling its all-new Honor Vision TVs – otherwise known as ‘Smart Screens’ – in China last month, Huawei is all set to launch the devices globally next week. According to an official communique from the company, the global launch of the so-called Smart Screen devices is scheduled for September 19 at the same event in Germany where the company is expected to unveil the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.
Reports about a global launch for the Honor Vision TVs started doing the rounds after multiple new models in the newly-launched lineup popped up on the Bluetooth SIG website, suggesting their imminent launch worldwide. While the rumors claimed that the company might be prepping to launch the devices globally at the ongoing IFA 2019 tech show in Berlin, that didn’t quite materialize, but it’s good to know that the lineup is, indeed, heading for global markets.
Huawei last month launched its Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro TVs in China after many leaks and teasers over the preceding weeks. Also referred to as Smart Screens by Huawei, the TVs feature many top-of-the-line features, but are priced surprisingly affordably compared to the competition. While the former is priced at 3,799 yuan (around Rs. 38,000), the latter comes with a 4,799 yuan price-tag (around Rs. 48,000).
The Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro both feature 55-inch 4K displays certified by TÜV Rheinland. The TVs come with bezel-less designs with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 94 percent and, as mentioned already, run the newly-announced HarmonyOS. Both TVs are powered by the quad-core Honghu 818 processor, but while the ‘Pro’ model comes with six 10W speakers, the standard model gets only four. The Pro model also gets a pop-up camera with support for 1080p/30FPS video calls.
