Like Honor Smart Vision TV, the Huawei Smart TV X65 will also feature a 24-megapixel pop-up camera. This camera will be mounted above the display.

There is a speculation that Yu is hinting at support for gesture control similar to that of Huawei P40 smartphones. We might even see Huawei add eye and pose tracking and make it possible with its own NPU. The posters for the smart TV confirm that it will have 14 speakers that will be located under the screen. A calibration process will figure out the soundscape in your room and create a profile for surround sound audio effect.
