According to mysmartprice, OnePlus is planning 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 exact date could be September 26, but plans can change and there’s no official confirmation yet. While it doesn’t look like TPV Display Technologies has an OLED panel.
The company’s TVs could be launched in China, India, and the US, as revealed through Bluetooth SIG documents. OnePlus plans to launch its smart TV in at least four sizes: 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch. The TV will offer Bluetooth 5.0 and “a unique Android TV experience.” We can’t be sure what a unique Android TV experience means, but it could be a combination of customized user interface and apps. Since Pete Lau had mentioned that his company’s first TV will have the specs to match competing solutions, we expect it to have a 4K HDR screen, Android operating system, a premium design, and some AI enhancements to picture quality.
In India, the OnePlus TV will be launched through Amazon.in. Company’s co-founder and CEO Pete Lau had already mentioned that the current crop of smart TVs isn’t really offering a well-integrated internet experience. OnePlus intends to offer not only premium design but also great picture quality and immersive audio. The company will also equip its TV with AI-powered voice assistant, but at this time, it isn’t clear if it will be Google Assistant, Alexa, or an in-house solution. Pete Lau had already mentioned that OnePlus is trying to make the TV better than the competition in how it connects to a user’s smartphone and display relevant information such as calendar entries and traffic information.
