HONOR Vision 55-inch 4K Smart TV Announced in India at IMC 2019; Launch Set for Q1 2020


All smartphone brands seem to be interested in entering the TV market in India, with Motorola and OnePlus being the newest members in the segment. And today, even Honor has jumped the bandwagon. The brand has entered the TV market in India with the announcement of Honor Vision – a 55-inch 4K TV. The brand has also showcased the Honor Vision Pro at the event, suggesting that even it could launch in the Indian market. The TV launch took place at the Indian Mobile Congress that kicked off in Delhi yesterday.

The Honor Vision made its global debut alongside the Honor Vision Pro at an event in China this August. The Honor Vision, as well as the Honor Vision Pro, are the first two TVs from the brand to feature Huawei’s all-new Harmony operating system. While the Honor Vision has a typical form factor, the Honor Vision Pro has a pop-up front-facing camera, making it an interesting device for consumers. Anyway, here are the specifications, pricing, and availability details of these TVs.

Honor has announced that it will launch the Honor Vision in India in the first quarter of 2020. There is no word on the availability of the Honor Vision Pro. Disappointingly, the brand hasn’t announced the price of the Honor Vision yet. So, Honor might organize another event in India during the launch to announce the pricing details.

In China, the Honor Vision cost CNY 3,799 (INR 37,999 approximately), whereas, the Honor Vision Pro comes with a price tag of CNY 4,799 (INR 47,999 approximately). You can expect these TVs to launch in the Indian market at the same price as it is in China.
