HUAWEI has been hard at work building up their own ecosystem of products in the last few years. One might say that cutting ties with Google was a blessing, as they have managed to go all out in unifying their range of products.
We have seen computers, phones, and audio equipment from the company that interface with each other in their own unique ways. And now the next product that will join their maturing ecosystem is the HUAWEI Vision S, a TV that is both stunning and rather versatile in its own way.
It’s all about the refresh rate.
Refresh rate basically boils down to how many frames are shown in a single second. Usually, when you watch a movie in a cinema (I know, I miss going to the cinema as well) you’re watching it at 24 frames-per-second (FPS). This is because it gives it a whole cinematic feel and doesn’t seem ‘odd’ in a sense.
But when it comes to video games, higher FPS offers a more immersive feel and it makes you feel more invested in the game. The caveat: You need a monitor or screen that supports the FPS. That’s where refresh rate comes in. If the monitor has a low refresh rate of, say 60Hz, it means that the highest FPS it can display is 60 FPS. While that might work fine with games like The Witcher 3, you’ll actually be at a disadvantage when playing games like Call of Duty: Warzone.
HUAWEI Vision S supports up to 120Hz, which means it’s able to display 120 FPS. That’s great if you hook up your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X to the TV.
High refresh rate is not its main selling point in our opinion.
Sadly, we now live in a world where meeting friends and family is usually done over a screen in the form of video conferences. The Vision S takes advantage of that by having a 1080p webcam mounted on top of the TV.
You can simply use your HUAWEI ID to connect to the built-in video conferencing software and get your whole family on the screen at once. No more will we need to crowd around a phone or laptop.
It wouldn’t be a Smart TV without some neat features.
Perhaps one of the cooler features of a smart TV is the ability to project your phone’s display onto a bigger screen. But if any of you have tried this, you know the procedure is rather tedious.
The Vision S makes this process much simpler by allowing you to tap your HUAWEI phone to the back of the TV remote, and doing this will project your phone to the TV. You can even navigate the TV controls by swiping on your phone’s screen.
The HUAWEI Vision S comes in at a rather affordable price of US$732 (RM2,999) for the 55-inch model and US$975 (RM3,999) for the 66-inch, which is roughly the cost of a new flagship phone.
Both variants are available for pre-order on HUAWEI’s online store, and come with some goodies, as well as free basic installation.
