The 55-inch model is priced at P32,999 from May 7 to May 20

Huawei on Thursday, May 6, entered the Philippine TV market with the launch of the Huawei Vision S, a 4K display with smart features and a webcam.

The launch marks Huawei’s continued expansion into other consumer product categories in the Philippines, following the arrival of their desktop computer set in March.

Huawei first announced its TV products back in 2019, after the Trump administration had kneecapped the company’s ability to trade with US technology partners, negatively affecting their smartphone business.

The Huawei Vision S is the first of these TVs to be officially available in the Philippines. There are 2 sizes for the TV: 55 inches and 65 inches. The former is priced at P36,999 while the latter is priced at P56,999. Huawei is running a pre-order promo however from May 7 to 20 that brings the price down to P32,999 and P49,999, respectively.

Standout features include a 120Hz display refresh rate, a 1080p detachable webcam for video calling through its MeeTime app, and its “Hey, Celia” voice assistant. The TV also comes with Huawei’s HarmonyOS, Huawei Share capability, and a feature that lets a smartphone be used as a controller for games.

While the TV does have a 120Hz refresh rate, one feature that might be missing for PS5 or Xbox Series X gamers is HDMI 2.1, needed for 120 frames-per-second gaming. The Huawei Vision S has HDMI 2.0 ports.
