OnePlus TV launch expected soon: Here's everything we expect
But since then, the company has remained quiet about its venture into the TV space.
Here's everything about it.
OnePlus TV is just days or weeks away
In an interview last year, Lau said the company wanted to launch its first Smart TV in 2019. However, he didn't share any timeline.
Meanwhile, Agarwal's recent post suggests that OnePlus TV is just days/weeks away.
Here's what he tweeted
Have some good news for you all: The OnePlus TV is not very far away, at least according to one source. The launch might be soon, so stay tuned. I have very high expectations from it, what about you? #OnePlus #OnePlusTV 😀 pic.twitter.com/qzCJnfozi4— Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) June 21, 2019
So, what do we know about OnePlus's Smart TV?
While we don't have any hard details about the OnePlus TV, Lau has confirmed that it'll be "a premium, flagship TV". Hence, we can expect it to feature a 4K display with HDR10+ support and high-resolution audio.
OnePlus's TV will focus on connected living
In the interview, Lau claimed that the TV "won't be something that's perfect and absolutely complete and revolutionary from the start" but with regular updates, the TV will become smarter and connected over the five years.
Hence, at this early stage, we expect the OnePlus TV to seamlessly stream media from smartphones, wirelessly sync to show updated calendar and some integration with IoT devices.
We expect OnePlus to offer flagship performance at competitive prices
While heavyweights like Samsung, Sony, and LG currently dominate the TV space, they have been challenged by the aggressively-priced Android TVs from Xiaomi, Vu and others. Hence, considering how OnePlus prices its flagship smartphones, this TV is sure to offer flagship performance at competitive prices.
