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.

Chinese smartphone major Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is set to refresh its mid-range X series in India soon and the company will introduce a new camera technology with the new iteration, Charles Peng, President, Honor India, said on Tuesday.

The handset maker is now mulling joining the pop-up selfie camera bandwagon as it aims to capture 10 per cent market share in India by 2020.

“The next smartphone in the X series line-up is going to launch soon. The new phone would not be a big change from the previous iterations (in terms of pricing) but we would show you our new camera technology with this product,” Peng told IANS here.

The previous iteration in the series — Honor 8X — was launched in India in October 2018 at a starting price of Rs 14,999. It is powered by the company’s proprietary Octa-Core Kirin 710 chipset.

Asked about the company’s proprietary HarmonyOS and whether a new device running the OS is in the offing, Peng said: “This OS is for all our devices. The first product, as you know, is the Honor Smart Screen and the OS can work with all our products, including our handsets, smart trackers and smartwatches.”

“This smart screen will launch in India soon,” Peng said without divulging further details on the timeline.

“We have launched 23 exclusive service centres (ESC) across India which follows same-day repair concept,” noted Peng, adding that the compnay recently launched service centres in Patna and Bhubaneswar.

Currently, 80-90 per cent of the company’s sales network is online but it expects to achieve a ratio of 80 per cent online and 20 per cent offline sales soon.
