OnePlus planning to launch its smart TV on September 26Last updated on Aug 12, 2019, 04:11 pm
After a successful run with its smartphone business, OnePlus is set to foray into the home entertainment segment with smart TVs.
Last year, CEO Pete Lau had announced that the company was developing a premium flagship TV, and now, we have details about its launch.
According to MySmartPrice, OnePlus is planning to launch its range of smart TVs on September 26.
Reportedly, OnePlus will launch a range of smart TVs
Citing sources familiar with OnePlus's launch plans, MySmartPrice claims that the company is working to launch "a range of its smart TVs in the last week of September 2019, anywhere between the 25th and the 30th of the month."
The launch event could be scheduled for September 26, but it is a tentative date and plans can change.
OnePlus TVs to be offered in at least four sizes
The report notes that the upcoming OnePlus TV series will come in at least four sizes: 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch.
The TVs will offer Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and are expected to run on a modified version of Android TV to offer a unique experience.
Notably, the TV's remote controller will also offer Bluetooth support considering it was certified by Bluetooth SIG last month.
What else do we know about OnePlus's smart TV series?
Presently, we don't have any concrete details/specifications about the upcoming OnePlus TVs.
However, given Lau has confirmed that it would be "a premium and flagship" TV series, we can expect it to offer 4K resolution with HDR10+ support and high-resolution audio.
Some of these models (presumably, the more premium ones) may come with OLED displays, according to reliable tipster Ishan Agarwal.
OnePlus TVs will focus on connected living
Earlier, Lau has said that the OnePlus TV "won't be something that's perfect and absolutely complete and revolutionary from the start" but with regular updates, it will become smarter and connected over the next five years.
Hence, at this stage, we expect the OnePlus TV to stream media, wirelessly sync with smartphones and have some sort of integration with IoT devices.
