After weeks of infusion information, the OnePlus TV has finally been announced. It is a 55-inch TV with a QLED panel, as we knew, and OnePlus says it has a "sleek minimalist design" with an "almost borderless screen". So it's a TV.
The OnePlus TV offers quantum dot color and supports both Dolby Vision and HDR10 +, although OnePlus has not yet provided detailed information on more technical aspects such as the local dimming solution. But the company claims that the color range of the TV is the best in its class among QLED competitors. There is also a 50 watt setup with eight speakers that, according to OnePlus, offers a "surreal surround sound experience" through Dolby Atmos support. The speaker bar sinks from the bottom of the TV and rises back into the body when it is not being used.
The software is Android TV, for connection with the phones of OnePlus, and works with both Google Assistant and Alexa. While CEO Pete Lau recently showed the somewhat famous remote control, you can also use the OnePlus Connect phone app for more advanced functions. There is a cover at the back that pops out to reveal all the usual connection ports.
The OnePlus TV is currently only being launched in India. OnePlus has a huge share in the premium telephone market in India and will try to transfer that brand value to the living room. Nothing is known about the price, nor when the TV is sold elsewhere. "We are also working hard to launch OnePlus TV in the North America, Europe, and China region once we enter into partnerships with most local and regional content providers," Lau said last month.
