- The LG TV comes with ThinQ AI and Netflix support
- The OnePlus TV also a 55-inch 4K panel and similar features
As of late, we have been seeing many TV launches in the industry, and it is justified as the festive season in India is also the festive season for the TV manufacturers as well. This year we got to see some new entrants in the TV segment, and the most notable of them was obviously the popular OEM, OnePlus. However, before OnePlus, the premium TV segment has been dominated by the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG. Out of the three, LG has made a name for itself in the premium TV segment by offering some unique features, noteworthy specifications and high display quality on its panels. Out of all the TVs that it has got in its portfolio, there is one which will catch the eye of the interested buyers in the premium segment. Coincidentally, this TV is also a likely competition for OnePlus TV.
LG 55-inch TV Features and Specifications
The first thing that is notable about this LG TV is the pricing which is pegged at Rs 93,990. At this rate, the TV competes with the likes of the newly launched OnePlus TV. The first feature that LG has boasted about the model number 55UM7600PTA is the LG ThinQ AI which is supported by Alexa and Google Assistant. The viewers will be able to interact with the TV using their voice courtesy of the Smart AI technology of the ThinQ. This TV also offers seamless connectivity with Apple devices as well owing to AirPlay and Apple HomeKit. There is also a Home Dashboard on the LG TV, where the users will be able to see all the connected devices on the screen at one time. The viewers can also notice the IoT devices which they have around the home. The LG TV comes with support for Netflix as well.
Talking about the display, the LG 55UM7600PTA offers a 4K panel on IPS display which spills vivid colours and fine details on the screen. LG also boasts of some impressive viewing angles on this TV, and there is a quad-core processor inside the TV which scales the low-resolution pictures to render in close to 4K quality. The TV also supports multi HDR formats including HDR 10 and the HLG format. The TV has also been touted to come with accurate colour reproduction and DTS Virtual:X for better sound. There are also other features like One Touch Sound Tuning.
OnePlus TV Features
On the other hand, OnePlus has also launched a new TV in India, and it comes in two variants, the OnePlus TV Q1 and the Q1 Pro. The OnePlus TV Q1 Pro retails for Rs 99,990, and it is also a 55-inch variant with 4K display, HDR support which includes DOLBY VISION, HDR10, HDR10+ and HLG. In terms of sound, the OnePlus TV is supported by 8 units of the speaker which throw out 50W of power. Also, the OnePlus TV is based on the Android TV platform which the LG TV misses out on and hence the price difference. It is also worth noting that although currently, the OnePlus TV does not come with Netflix support, it has been said to arrive to the TV in a few weeks. If you are considering the two TVs, then we would suggest that although the OnePlus TV is a little pricier, but the price difference is worth it as it offers a better design, and better features along with promise for long Android TV updates.
