Unlike the Huawei Vision OLED X65, this new series of televisions are located within the mid-range, with some features lower than other models of higher range. However, they do repeat with several additions that differentiate them from many of their competitors: the Huawei Vision S Pro series comes with a front camera and a long list of functions to synchronize with the mobile and other devices in the home. These are its features.

New Huawei TVs with HarmonyOS, the alternative system to Android TV
Huawei Vision S series televisions are available in three versions, from 55 to 75 inches. In particular, the Pro version with the best features only comes from 65 inches. What we have here are televisions with 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Huawei promises 92% DCI-P3 color space and dynamic contrast to match HDR.
These are common specifications found in the mid-range. That’s because we’re looking at LCD panels with about 350 nits of brightness. To give you an idea, this Vision S Pro range would be the equivalent to Huawei’s Nova series in mobiles. That is to say, competitive models in price and aimed at a young audience.
The most striking feature of Huawei TVs with HarmonyOS, the operating system itself and presented as an alternative to Android TV, is the inclusion of a front camera that is hidden when not in use. The resolution of this camera in the Vision S Pro is 13 megapixels, with a 1080p resolution. It will serve us to make video calls from the big screen and connect to different devices.
Huawei TVs, like the rest of their products, bet on the benefits of Artificial Intelligence. In this case, to synchronize with other intelligent home products, either the cell phone to pass files or to be able to control even with other objects connected to the Huawei ecosystem such as robotic vacuum cleaners or external speakers.
Huawei allows to use the mobile as if it was the touch panel of the TV, like a mouse, and to move around the menus freely. The mobile can also be used as a game controller on the TV, with a latency of 30 ms.
For the sound section, there are four 10W speakers. At the connectivity level, there are dual-band WiFi 5, three HDMI 2.0 ports, and a USB 3.0 port. The remote control has up to six microphones to be able to receive voice instructions and even be used for karaoke.
Inside there are 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and a proprietary Honghu processor, capable of reproducing high-resolution content and “enhancing processing to optimize dynamic range and image detail.
Versions and Price of the Huawei Vision S Pro
The new HarmonyOS televisions are currently only available in China, but given the pace of updates, it is not excluded that the company will soon announce its arrival in more countries.
The 65-inch model has an official cost of 5,699 yuan (about $870) while the 75-inch model of the Huawei Vision S Pro costs 7,999 yuan, about $1,200 at the direct exchange rate.
