- OnePlus TV is rumoured to launch in the last week of September
- The Chinese company is planning to introduce at least four models
OnePlus TV will be the Chinese smartphone maker’s first television that is expected to go official in the coming weeks. In a forum post earlier today OnePlus announced the OnePlus TV naming and also revealed the logo. Rumours suggest that the OnePlus TV will be launched in the last week of September- possibly on September 26, and there will be multiple models from the manufacturer. It has been close to one year since the company announced its foray into the Television market and it’s great to see an update coming officially from OnePlus itself. Right now, OnePlus did not reveal any features of its upcoming TV, besides the logo and naming.
OnePlus TV Coming Soon: What to Expect?
OnePlus is still a young brand established only a few years ago, but the company is not hesitating to foray into other departments. OnePlus is known just as a smartphone brand until now, but the company will soon be a TV manufacturer as well. OnePlus TV is expected to revamp the experience of TVs in our homes and OnePlus might be doing it with the software. OnePlus phones run OxygenOS and they’re the best-optimised phones you can purchase in the market right now.
If OnePlus manages to achieve at least 25% of what it did with OxygenOS, then the company will surely be on the success roads. Right now, every Smart TV available in the market takes an eternity to boot. Xiaomi tried to change the experience with PatchWall UI, but ultimately, the brand had to choose Android TV platform as base, which in turn is a mess right now. Android TVs offer a lot of features, but when it comes to opening apps or other intensive tasks, the performance deteriorates.
OnePlus has a massive challenge in front of them, but if the company manages to deliver what it’s promising, it will surely beat the likes of Samsung, LG and other Tier-I brands.
OnePlus TVs May Arrive in Multiple Screen Sizes
Recently, several OnePlus TV models arrived at the Bluetooth certification website, revealing the screen sizes. All the OnePlus Smart TVs will have Bluetooth 5.0 support and will be available in screen sizes between 43-inch and 75-inches. The Bluetooth SIG website revealed that the company is planning to launch 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch OnePlus TV models. Besides the 43-inch model, the other variants will likely have a 4K panel. Additional details regarding TVs are not known at the moment, but we might see them launching at the end of September, as we reported recently.
With the name of OnePlus Smart TV coming out, we might have to wait a little more to see the first TV from the company. Hopefully, OnePlus gets the pricing right as well with its TVs.
