"HONOR Vision is not just television as we know it. It defines the future of 
television with HONOR's 'Sharp Tech' innovations. HONOR Vision will play a more 
critical role in the future of smart family life. It is not only a home 
entertainment center, but also an information sharing center, a control 
management center and a multi-device interaction center," said Mr. George Zhao, 
President of HONOR.

The World's First Smart Screen equipped with Huawei's Self-developed HarmonyOS
During the HDC, Huawei launched HarmonyOS, a new microkernel-based, distributed 
operating system designed to deliver a cohesive user experience across all 
devices and user scenarios. HarmonyOS will be optimized and gradually adopted 
across the brand's smart devices including smart watches, smart screens, 
in-vehicle systems, and smart speakers. HarmonyOS will be released as an 
open-source platform worldwide to encourage adoption.

In an age where users demand a holistic intelligent experience at all times 
across all devices, it is important to have an operating system with improved 
cross-platform capabilities. According to Mr. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's 
Consumer Business Group, Huawei's innovative HarmonyOS supports all user 
scenarios across a broad range of devices and platforms, in order to deliver a 
consistent experience with low latency and strong security. Among the smart 
devices shown at HDC, HONOR Vision is the first smart screen equipped with 
HarmonyOS.

Synchronized Tri-chips: Honghu 818 Intelligent Chipset, AI Camera NPU Chipset 
and Flagship-level Wi-Fi Chipset
HONOR Vision brings a number of innovative technologies together to give users 
an intelligent smart screen experience. 

Honghu 818 Intelligent Display Chipset: As the latest intelligent display SoC 
available globally, "Honghu 818" carries a magic image-processing engine. 
Equipped with seven advanced image-processing technologies, including Motion 
Estimate and Motion Compensation (MEMC), High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDR), 
Super-Resolution (SR), Noise Reduction (NR), Dynamic Contrast Improvement 
(DCI), Auto Color Management (ACM) and Local Dimming (LD), the "Honghu 818" 
chipset enhances and optimizes image resolution, contrast and color performance 
through multiple algorithms. The octa-core processor can handle heavy 
image-processing on large screens and run multiple tasks simultaneously. MEMC 
is also capable of delivering high-resolution images, superior sound quality 
and far-field voice interaction. The processor's industry-leading bandwidth 
utilization rate outperforms others by over 50% on average.

AI Camera NPU Chipset: Another "Sharp Tech" innovation, a Smart Pop-up AI 
Camera equipped with a dedicated HiSilicon Hi3516DV300 NPU chipset enables AI 
capabilities including face recognition, body tracking and posture detection. 
The camera's pop-up design provides a smart and secure user experience, tilting 
downwards by 10 degrees when wall-mounted and automatically hiding behind the 
screen when not in use. 

Flagship-level Wi-Fi Chipset: HONOR Vision is equipped with a flagship Wi-Fi 
chipset—the HiSilicon Hi1103. As the world's first chipset to support a 160MHz 
bandwidth with a download rate of up to 1.7Gbps, the chipset is 1.7 times 
faster than the industry average, enabling smoother and more stable video 
playback, especially for 4K HD video. It also supports 2.4G/5GHz dual frequency 
optimization. While 2.4GHz Wi-Fi ensures a stronger Wi-Fi signal and wider 
reach, 5GHz Wi-Fi enables faster internet speeds and less network latency, 
offering an optimized connection under a variety of environments.     

HONOR Vision: Transforming the Future of Television
HONOR Vision will play a more critical role in the smart home. Going beyond a 
home entertainment center, the HONOR Vision also serves as an information 
sharing center, control management center and multi-device interaction 
center.             

Home Entertainment Center: HONOR Vision offers an extraordinary audio and video 
experience, with a library of content from Huawei Video and a range of other 
platforms, creating a one-stop shop for TV series, variety shows, movies, 
music, animation and more.  

Information Sharing Center: HONOR Vision's intelligent display is equipped with 
the Family Note Function, allowing users to transfer 600M images between their 
smartphone and display via Huawei Share in just 20 seconds—100 times faster 
than transferring via Bluetooth.

Control and Management Center: Huawei and HONOR are committed to establishing 
HiLink, an open eco-system for the smart home. The platform as well as the 
technology will be accessible to other smart home providers in the industry, 
allowing users to connect their preferred smart home products together.

Multi-Device Interaction Center: HONOR Vision's intelligent display utilizes 
the HONOR Magic-link function, allowing users to use their smartphone or Pad to 
search for programs, adjust settings, and more. It also allows users to 
simultaneously sync content being typed out on their smartphone or Pad to the 
HONOR Vision display. Using this function, users can also connect and project 
files without downloading any apps on their smartphone or smart screen, and can 
simply tap to activate NFC and enjoy a 1080P HDR content viewing experience. 
With an ultra-low latency of 100ms, users can connect devices to HONOR Vision 
within two seconds. Users can also swap between Miracast mode and DLNA mode 
seamlessly when watching videos, browsing images and gaming.

Superior Design for a Superior Screen
Both variants of HONOR Vision feature a 55-inch 4K HDR display. Thanks to its 
three-side bezel-less Full-View design, users can enjoy a screen-to-body ratio 
of up to 94%. 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 series includes the 2GB+16GB 
standard version and the 2GB+32GB PRO version, priced at RMB3,799 and RMB4,799 
respectively.
