Honor's 'Vision' is a smart TV with a pop-up camera
Honor has unveiled its plans for the near future at the Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC), which took place in Guangzhou, China, recently. They apparently include the release of a smart, large-screened device called the Vision. The inaugural TV from this Huawei sub-brand will be powered by the Honghu 818 SoC.
This new addition to the HiSilicon processor line-up is described as an intelligent display chipset. Honor also asserts that it has a "magic" image-processing engine, which supports advanced techniques such as Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation (MEMC); High Dynamic Range (HDR); Dynamic Contrast Improvement (DCI); Auto Color Management (ACM) and localized dimming (LD).
These specs may promote the resolution, contrast and color accuracy for the upcoming smart screen on its release. Honor has also announced that it will integrate a pop-up camera - like the ones found in its latest smartphones, the 9X series.
This component will apparently be present for face-recognition purposes. It may sound a little unorthodox in today's smart TV market; on the other hand, this design choice may help the Honor Vision escape comparisons to the average enterprise-grade monitor.
