We have witnessed the Huawei-ban drama happened in the US. They have banned second-most most selling smartphone manufacturer from indulging in business with any US companies. Later on, they revoked the ban.
Huawei already revealed they are working on an in-house operating system. With the US, almost halting their business, the company fastened the development and here they are. Huawei’s own HarmonyOS is live in action.
Huawei Launched HarmonyOS and Honor Vision TV
A while back, we heard that they were working on a product for non-smartphone devices. However, the company itself made it clear the OS in the pipeline can be used for smartphones as well. Now that the finished product is here, let’s have a look at the details.
Huawei’s new platform is not actually a threat. They are not seeing it as one. The Whitehouse can prevent their access to using Android anytime. That’s why the company is keeping HarmonyOS as a remedial solution. If and when a similar menace happens again, they won’t have to wait for the mercy of the US President.
As of now, they are planning to use the operating system for non-smartphone device. Moreover, the head of Huawei’s consumer business told in a press conference that the platform is ready as a smartphone device anytime they wanted. And he also claimed HarmonyOS was entirely different from Android and iOS.
Huawei doesn’t want to stay still after launching own-platform. They have gone on to release a new TV running on HarmonyOS. Dubbed as Honor Vision TV, it carries an edge-to-edge display with metal frames. It has a 55-inch screen with 4K resolution. You can expect 400 nits brightness and 178 degree wide viewing angle.
Underneath the hood, the TV packs in Honghu quad-core CPU and Mali G51MP4 GPU coupled with 2 GB of RAM. You also get 16 GB internal storage.
The magic link sharing option available on the TV allows you to share content between the big screen and your smartphone. The 6 far-field microphones enhance the performance of the voice assistant.
The sound output comes from 4×10 W speakers. As for connectivity, you get Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi. It features HDMI 2.0 ports, USB 3.0 slots and a few others including Ethernet as well.
Alongside the regular variant, they also unveiled a Pro version with 32 GB storage and 6x 10 W speakers.
