OnePlus TV: At a glance
While the front looks of the OnePlus TV remain a mystery, the teaser image confirms that the back panel will come with a Kevlar-like panel. We can also see a metallic stand riveted to the top-middle portion. The stand will likely support the swivel mechanism, allowing you to easily pan your TV screen depending on your position.

Further, going by the recent leaks, the OnePlus TV will come 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.

The OnePlus TV is said to be powered by a MediaTek MT5670 chipset, paired with 3GB RAM and a dedicated Gamma Color Magic processor. It will also come with a Bluetooth-enabled smart remote controller and Wi-Fi support. Under the hood, the TV will run a custom and "improved" version of Android TV 9, offering access to Google Assistant, built-in Chromecast, and Google Play Store.
