Just last month, Huawei debuted its latest line of premium smart TVs in Malaysia following the announcement of the Huawei Vision S series. Beginning tomorrow, May 7, both 55- and 65-inch Huawei Vision S TVs will be available for preorder in the Philippines.
(Update, May 8: Our review of this TV is finally up!)
The 55-inch Huawei Vision S is priced at P36,999 (around $772 converted) locally, or P32,999 ($688) for cash or straight-card payments. The 65-inch model, on the other hand, costs P56,999 ($1,189) — or P49,999 ($1,043) for cash/straight transactions.
Those are aggressive prices for what the lineup offers. Even better, customers who’ll pre-purchase the Vision S from May 7 to May 20 will receive a free Android set-top box and a wireless microphone — or two, if you opt for the 65-incher. Besides the freebies, Huawei’s latest TV offering will be eligible for free delivery in select areas until May 31.
The Vision S series will be offered at Huawei concept stores and major appliance retailers, including Abenson and AllHome, nationwide. You can also order online through the official Huawei Store, Lazada, and Shopee.
As for the TV itself, the Huawei Vision S packs an LCD VA panel with 4K resolution, HDR10 and HLG support, 350 nits of brightness, up to 120Hz refresh when displaying 1080p content, and MEMC technology. MEMC stands for Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation. Essentially, this feature uses an algorithm to interpolate additional frames in a scene to make motion look smoother and less jittery. We are happy to report that this TV can play certain games at 120 fps on our Microsoft Xbox Series X. Our review should be up tomorrow.
More premium-looking than many of its competitors in the segment, the Huawei Vision S sports an aluminum-alloy frame and features three HDMI 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, as well as Bluetooth 5.1 and dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity. The remote control that is bundled with the TV has an NFC tag for Huawei’s OneHop feature, which lets you instantly pair your phone with the TV for easier file sharing and screen mirroring.
The Huawei Vision S is the first device to hit the local market running the company’s own HarmonyOS operating system
On the software side, the Vision S is the first device to hit the local market running the company’s own HarmonyOS operating system. HarmonyOS comes preinstalled with Petal Search and AppGallery and supports APK sideloading, in case you want to download Android apps from another third-party app source.
Conveniently, both variants of the Vision S will ship with a 13-megapixel camera that attaches to the TV via a magnetic pin connector on the rear panel. Together with the clip-on camera and six-mic layout, this TV lets you take pictures and videos and do video calls on the Huawei MeeTime app.
