At the end of last month, Honor announced the Honor Vision TV with a new Honghu 818 chipset and Smart Pop-up Camera. With a launch speculated to be made sometime this month, a live image of the Honor TV has now leaked online.
The image, shared by MyDrivers, shows the UI of the Honor Smart TV which has several options that roughly translate to the system settings of the TV. There are options to control display settings, sound settings, health, car, device interconnection, account management and an About TV section. The UI is said to be a modification of the HongMeng OS that has been under development at Huawei for a long time.
On the right side of the TV is where users can check for the latest firmware update. The report notes that Honor has already conducted internal and external testing of the TV with a positive response for the TV’s AI Smart Camera.
At the Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC) in Guangzhou last month, Honor President George Zhao revealed some key details about the Honor Vision TV. The TV will be powered by the Honghu 818 chipset which is an Octa-core processor. The chipset will accompany an image-processing engine equipped with Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation, High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDR), Super-Resolution, Noise Reduction, Dynamic Contrast Improvement, Auto Colour Management and Local Dimming.
The Honghu 818 is said to support video decoding from 8K 30 fps to 4K 120 fps and 64MP pictures. It will, additionally, come with Histen audio technology offering an ultra-wide sound field, transient intermodulation distortion, sound equalisation and intelligent bass.
Lastly, Honor also disclosed that its Smart TV will equip a Smart Pop-up Camera. The world’s first smart screen, as Honor calls it, will equip NPU capability for face recognition and will bring powerful functions to the large screen smart TVs.
The Honor Vision TV will be released in mid-August 2019 and we can expect the company to launch it in India as well.
