"Named as Honor Vision and Vision Pro, these have a 55" (3840×2160) 4K UHD displays with 400nits of brightness, 16:9 aspect ratio, 7mm thickness, and three side thin bezels. But he added that there was no technical reason Harmony could not also be used to power a phone.

Huawei began working on Harmony two years ago, Yu said, and executives at the Chinese firm, which is also a major supplier of equipment for wireless networks around the planet, have been speaking in vague terms about the project for months. Zhao Ming mentioned that Huawei smart screen would not be anything like the traditional TV that the consumers worldwide are used to. Making it open source could help the OS increase its scale and attract more developers to make apps for it.

Honghu 818, an AI television chipset powered by Chinese software giant Baidu, is what the smart display runs on and is much more capable than your average TV 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 is said to enhance and optimise image resolution, contrast and colour performance through multiple algorithms.

Rounding out the features will be a Smart Pop-up AI Camera that'll use artificial intelligence to track users' bodies, detect their posture, and recognize their faces. The Pro variant has six 10W speakers, while the Honor Vision has four 10W speakers only.

Of course, the Honor Vision's primary function will be as a smart television, one that'll have access to various unspecified video and audio platforms, as well as Huawei Video. Owners will be able to use their phones or tablets to search for programs to watch. The border for the smart screen also uses a seamless bending process. It sports a 6.9mm full metal frame and a diamond-pattern on the back.

The standard Honor Vision with 16GB of onboard storage will be offered at 3499 Yuan (£415.65) while the Honor Vision Pro with 32GB of internal memory is priced at 4799 Yuan (£570.07). There is also a TÜV Rheinland Eye Comfort mode. The TV will go on pre-order starting tomorrow, with sales commencing on August 15th.
