The Upcoming Honor TV Will Have A Motorised Popup Camera
After smartphones, Huawei’s subsidiary, Honor plans to enter the Smart TV market. The company claims that the upcoming television has numerous innovative features that will make it stand out of the crowd. Well, that is something only time will tell and will be influenced by several factors.
Days before the official launch, Honor has shared a teaser of its highly anticipated television that will bring to the table, a segment-first feature. According to the teaser, the Honor TV will have a camera which will be placed inside a motorised module.
The said feature is similar to what is found on modern smartphones including the newly launched Honor 9X and the Redmi K20 duo. Like a smartphone, the motorised pop-up selfie camera will allow minimising the thickness of the bezels around the display.
Clearly, the camera will be used for making video calls via certain applications that the upcoming Honor TV will support. Additionally, it could be used to capture pictures or videos. Though it is yet to be confirmed, the camera can aid in playing certain applications like games that need to track the movement of the user.
Noteworthy, due to its retractable nature, the camera on the Honor TV won’t appear as a threat to one personal or working space. This is a huge factor while considering the fact that even laptops or computer webcams can be hijacked by hackers for ill purposes.
Besides, the Honor TV is expected to run on HongMeng which is company’s homebrewed OS that it has been developing since 2012.
Accordingly, it will also support a variety of on-demand video streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime or similar services that are offered in China.
Unfortunately, the teaser does not reveal any other aspects like the display size or processor of the upcoming Honor TV.
Nonetheless, it is expected to launch on the 9th of August which marks the commencement of Huawei’s developer commencement.
