Huawei back in August finally realized its dreams of cutting its over-reliance on Google’s Android OS when it announced the Honor smart screen. The Honor Vision and Honor Vision Pro came as the brand’s first HarmonyOS-powered devices, and are currently only available in China.
And while there are currently no plans to sell the smart screen outside of China, it does appear Huawei will be launching variants of the screens for the international markets, just as four Huawei smart screens have appeared on Bluetooth SIG for certification.

These newly certified Huawei screens and Honor Smart Screens devices bear the model numbers HEGE, OSCA-550, OSCA-550A, OSCA-550X, and OSCA-550AX, and are all based on EMUI HomeVision which perhaps, is a skin for HarmonyOS, or even one that is compatible with Google’s Android which could allow both Chinese and international users enjoy similar interface, the base platform notwithstanding.
Similar to the Honor smart screen, the newly certified Huawei smart Screen get the HiSilicon Hi1103 chipset. And that more or less confirms that these devices are mere international variants of the Honor smart Screen. It is also plausible we could be seeing some all-new Huawei TV or a smart display similar to the Nest Hub pretty soon.
IFA is just around the corner, and that might just be an avenue for the Chinese firm to showcase what new innovations it got under its sleeve.
