Android Authority reported that in Europe, Honor will launch its smart television, Honor Vision based on Android and not Harmony OS.
Bluetooth SIG website made a big list of upcoming Honor devices that are waiting in the line to get launched. Some reports suggest that IFA 2019 is the chosen event by Honor where it will make a big announcement about its device launches. However, as of now, nothing is officially confirmed by the tech giant itself.
On the Bluetooth SIG website, the devices have been listed as Huawei / Honor Smart Screen and they come with model numbers: HEGE, OSCA-550, OSCA-550A, OSCA-550X, and OSCA-550AX. It is being said that these devices run in EMUI HomeVision 22.214.171.124. It is still not clear whether this is based on the company’s very own operating system, Harmony OS or Android.
Android is the more likely option because a few days back, it was reported that Harmony OS will be seen in Honor devices from 2020 onwards. However, some sources suggest that EMUI HomeVision OS is based on both which means, it will be able to launch applications created for both Android as well as Harmony OS platforms.
It is interesting to note that after a number of leaks and rumors regarding specifications over the preceding weeks, in the very last month, Huawei launched Honor Vision along with its professional variant, Honor Vision Pro TV in China.
In China, Honor Vision is called “Smart Screens”. The smart TV comes with a number of top of the line features even though it is priced at an affordable rate. Honor Vision comes with a price tag of 3799 yuan (around INR 38000) while Honor Vision Pro is tagged with a price of 4799 yuan (around INR 48000).
