HiSilicon show off their Hi3798C V200 SoC with Dolby Vision support

Update July 2016 - new device announced:
- Egreat A5

Update April 2016 - the first devices with this SoC were announced:
- Himedia Q10 Pro (and Q5 Pro, soon)
- UyeSee S500

HiSilicon is known to have one of the best SoC's for HDTV, with better image quality than similar priced SoC's.

It came as a surprise to me that new devices using HiSilicon weren't announced on the past weeks, they usually do get announced in August.
But that's about to change, since HiSilicon announced their Hi3798C V200 SoC and their partnership with Dolby Laboratories for the integration of the Dolby Vision VS10 (with Higher Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wider Color Gamut (WCG)).

The HiSilicon Ultra HD range also includes Hi3796M V100 and Hi3798M V100, all three of them covering the full range of lower-end to high-end devices.

This should be a very interesting SoC, let's see who gets it to the market.
