Huawei's sub-brand Honor introduced its intelligent display chipset "Honghu 818" to support its ambitions in the television sector. The announcement was made by Honor's president George Zhao at the Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC) in Guangzhou, south China, on Friday.

The chipset for Honor's smart screen is equipped with seven image-processing technologies, including Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation (MEMC), High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDR), Super-Resolution (SR), Noise Reduction (NR), Dynamic Contrast Improvement (DCI), Auto Color Management (ACM) and Local Dimming (LD), for enhancing and optimizing image resolution, contrast and color performance of the display through multiple algorithms, according to the company.

Powered by octa-core processor, the chipset supports video decoding from 8K30 frames to 4K120 frames, and has the ability to decode 64-megapixel images.

A smart pop-up camera, which enables NPU capability for face recognition, will also be applied on Honor's smart screen.

The company will launch the “Honghu 818” enabled smart screen in August and will provide it openly to manufacturers.
