On stage at the Huawei Developer Conference (HDC 2019) in Dongguan, Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu confirmed that tomorrow (August 10) the world should expect an Honor TV announcement. 

Having just announced Huawei’s new cross-device operating system, HarmonyOS, a potential alternative to Android down the line, and a smart device OS in the meantime, Yu revealed that the Honor TV will be the first device/service to run it.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard murmurs of Honor launching a TV. In July, Honor lifted the lid on its Honghu 818, a television chipset. This octa-core processor is clearly more capable than your average TV engine. 

With support for Motion Estimation/Compensation, HDR, Super Resolution, Noise Reduction, Dynamic Contrast Improvement, Auto Color Management and Local Dimming, it’s clearly smart, and if it’s anything like the products Honor has launched in the smartphone world, it will be competitively priced.
