Huawei has launched two news TVs – the Vision X65 and Vision V55i – in China today. Starting with the Vision X65, it is the first OLED TV from the brand and it is now the flagship television set from the company. This new TV, as its name suggests, has a 65-inch display size and it brings with it a bunch of high-end features including a pop-up camera for video calls. As for the Vision X55i, it is a refreshed version of the Huawei Vision TV that was launched last year. This is an affordable offering from the brand and it has a 55-inch LCD panel. Let us have a deeper look at their features and specifications.
Huawei Vision X65
Just like any other high-end TV in the market, the Huawei Vision X65 features an OLED panel. As you might expect, the display has a 4K resolution. The TV, surprisingly, comes with a 120Hz refresh rate. As far as I know, only LG was offering a 120Hz OLED TV up until now. It is good to see that even Huawei has jumped the bandwagon. The higher refresh rate will make it a good choice for gamers. Anyway, the display has 1000 nits brightness level, HDR support, and German TUV Rheinland certification or eye care.
When it comes to audio, the Vision X65 leaves most of the high-end TVs behind as it packs a jaw-dropping, 14 speakers. And all of them are hidden below the display to offer a seamless design. According to the brand, these 14 speakers can offer 75W of sound output. There is also a 5.1 channel audio mode, which, I think, will offer a surround sound effect by bouncing the sound off the walls. Powering the TV is an in-house developed HiSilicon Hi3559C SoC and the TV runs on Huawei’s Hongmeng OS. There is also 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage onboard.
The most interesting part about the TV, however, is that it has a pop-up camera above the screen, for you to make video calls. It is a 24MP sensor and it has human movement tacking capability which enables users to control the TV with gestures. Owning to all the high-end hardware that the TV packs, the Vision X65 costs CNY 24,999 (Approximately INR 2,50,000) in China. The TV is currently available on pre-order and it will start shipping from April 26. The brand hasn’t announced the availability details for the TV for markets outside China.
Huawei Vision V55i
A complete list of improvements that the Vision 55i brings over its predecessor isn’t available at the moment. However, as per my understanding, the Vision V55i features a new chipset, the Honghu 818, and it now comes with a pop-up camera for video calls, just like that in the Vision X65. The Vision V55i costs 3,799 (Approximately INR 38,000) in China. The TV is currently available for pre-orders and it will start shipping from April 30. Its availability details for international markets are yet to be announced.
