Equipped with its own operating system called HarmonyOS or HongMeng in Chinese, Huawei’s sub-brand HONOR on Saturday launched “HONOR Vision Series” — its first smart screen at the ongoing Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) in Dongguan City, China.

The HONOR Vision series includes the 2GB+16GB standard version and the 2GB+32GB PRO variant, priced at 3,799 yuan and 4,799 yuan, respectively.

Both variants of HONOR Vision feature a 55-inch 4K HDR display. There’s a three-side bezel-less full-view design with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 94 per cent.

“HONOR Vision defines the future of televisions with our ‘Sharp Tech’ innovations. It will play a more critical role in the future of smart family life. It is not only a home entertainment centre, but also an information sharing centre, a control management centre and a multi-device interaction centre,” George Zhao, President, HONOR, said in a statement.

The smart screen sports a 6.9mm full metal frame and a diamond-patterned rear, supporting an intelligent breathing light and TÜV Rheinland Eye Comfort Mode.

The “HONOR Vision” sports three self-developed intelligent chipsets — the Honghu 818 Intelligent Display Chipset, an AI Camera NPU chipset and a flagship-level Wi-Fi chipset.

Huawei is the world’s second-largest smartphone seller in the world after Samsung, but the US-China trade tensions raised questions about the company’s continued access to the Android systems in the future.

The company unveiled its HarmonyOS at the event on Friday.
