OnePlus is set to change the TV market: Here's how
In a matter of weeks, Chinese giant OnePlus is expected to barge into the smart television category by unveiling the super-impressive OnePlus TV. The TV set is expected to offer a stunningly beautiful display, and now, OnePlus has itself confirmed that it will sport a number of Google-powered features, including built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant. Here's all you need to know about OnePlus TV.
Based on several teasers and leaks, OnePlus TV is expected to debut as a flagship television with a 55-inch QLED display in India. It will reportedly have a nearly bezel-less 4K display, with a density of 320 pixels per inch, as well as Dolby Vision support. Notably, we could also see more screen sizes of the television, going up to 75-inches, in select markets.
While we expected OnePlus to offer a custom UI, the company has confirmed that the upcoming TV will have the Android TV experience. It will offer "seamless" integration with smartphones and pack a range of Google-powered features, including Google Assistant, built-in Chromecast, Google Play Store, and much more. Plus, updates will be served for three years in a row.
With Android TV and Google-powered services, you would get a range of benefits on the OnePlus TV. For instance, you would be able to download apps or cast content directly from apps on your phone to the television. Plus, Google Assistant would also work just like it does on your phone, providing weather updates, instant music playback, and other smart capabilities on command.
"We believe that with our combined expertise, we can move even closer to improve the human experience through simplicity, efficiency, and intelligent functionality," OnePlus India General Manager Vikas Agarwal told India Today, adding that they are looking to expand their presence in the TV category.
Further, leaks indicate the OnePlus TV will mark its global debut with a launch in the Indian market on September 26. The date has not been confirmed, but a September launch is certainly likely, considering the company has been working and teasing the TV for a long while now. There is no word on the pricing but it may come as an Amazon-exclusive product.
