Alongside the new and highly anticipated OnePlus 7T, OnePlus also launched today in New Delhi the company’s first flagship smart TV—the OnePlus TV, a device combining imagination and intelligence to seamlessly connect mobile and home networks for the future of interconnectivity.
The new OnePlus TV is carefully crafted to deliver a smarter, more intuitive and seamless internet experience from outdoors to indoors through the integration of the most advanced software and hardware available. OnePlus entered the TV industry with the same “Never Settle” mindset it brought to the smartphone industry almost 6 years ago when it released its first devices in 2014. The launch of the OnePlus TV brings more than a premium television set, offering industry-leading picture and sound quality, stunning exterior design and a curated streaming experience. OnePlus has redefined what role the TV plays in the home through a seamless connection between the smartphone and TV.
The OnePlus TV introduces a new device built to be the central hub of a connected smart home, integrating the different technological aspects of everyday life by converging mobile with space-based technologies. The OnePlus TV is the company’s first step into the connected home market, bringing seamless and intelligent interactions with immersive content consumption into the center of the home. Hungama, Eros and Zee5 content has been deep-integrated into the OnePlus Play dashboard. Other content partners include Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, SonyLiv and Youtube.
The OnePlus TV will first be available to its passionate and supportive users in India, where the company is celebrating five years of exceptional, community-driven growth. OnePlus has established strong relationships with India-based content providers to guarantee TV users have access to their favorite programs. In the future, OnePlus plans to launch TVs in China, Europe and North America, after securing relationships with local and regional content providers.
The landmark debuts continued today with the announcement of OnePlus’ first-ever smart TV devices, the OnePlus TV 55 Q1 and the OnePlus TV 55 Q1 Pro. Both devices will first be available in India.
“We didn’t want to make an ordinary smart TV, we wanted to make a TV that would meet the highest standard in the industry, and one that would be a breakthrough in users’ home internet experience,” said Lau.
Sleek Minimalist Design
OnePlus TV features superior craftsmanship and embodies the company’s elegant and minimalist design philosophy. The TV body boasts a slim unified profile to fit into any living room setting and interior décor without adding clutter.
With a nearly bezel-less screen and a moving soundbar, OnePlus’ smart TV provides an even more immersive and riveting home entertainment experience.
OnePlus TV’s 55-inch 4K QLED display is capable of delivering a more vivid and dynamic picture quality for content viewed on the screen. With a very high color range of NTSC 120%, images and videos are always rendered in crisp quality and more vibrant colors.
With Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support, images displayed on the OnePlus TV are constantly optimized on a scene-by-scene (and even frame-by-frame) basis, rendering more detail and better color accuracy to be displayed across all content displayed.
OnePlus TV houses a powerful Gamma Color Magic chipset to help with picture processing and rendering. The platform works by using a collection of carefully optimized algorithms to deliver smoother, clearer and more natural viewing experience with videos whether it’s ultra HD content streamed online or over satellite services.
Nestled within the OnePlus TV is a powerful 50W 8-speaker setup to deliver the most dynamic and three-dimensional soundstage.
With 4 full-range front-facing speakers, 2 front-facing tweeters for the highs and 2 rear subwoofers for the bass, a richer and more immersive audio experience is established for replenishing the living room with the most haunting audio from the OnePlus TV.
Powered by Dolby Atmos for a cinematic sound, the OnePlus TV is able to provide a surreal surround sound experience, bringing normally unheard audio clarity to life across all sound channels.
The OnePlus TV is powered by Android TV for a seamless transition from the company’s flagship devices to the big screen.
OnePlus also cooperated with Google and Amazon to bring the American technology giant’s respective smart assistants, Google Assistant and Alexa, onto the OnePlus TV.
OnePlus has also introduced the OnePlus Connect app that can be used with the OnePlus TV. This app allows users to use the smartphone as a virtual remote for the TV, browse through and directly play content on OxygenPlay, and quickly cast local video files on the smartphone to the TV. Other features include TypeSync, which allows users to type text on the TV using a smartphone, and Smart Volume Control, which adjusts the volume on the TV when you get a call on your smartphone (while watching TV, of course).
OnePlus TV Remote
OnePlus TV remote will feature a USB-C port, regular Android navigation buttons, a Google Assistant button, a… OnePlus button, and a completely blank button. There’s also some sort of touch pad or directional pad at the top.
The OnePlus televisions will go on sale during the upcoming Amazon Great Indian Festival sale, and are the first products in this segment from OnePlus. The OnePlus TV is currently only available in India.
