The flagship smartphone maker, OnePlus has been rumoured to have been working on a premium television set. Last year in September, CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau announced on the forums about the new product they are working on, that is, the OnePlus TV. It is expected to be a ‘premium, flagship TV’ and bring a ‘total connected’ experience for the users.
Tipster Ishan Agarwal said in his tweet,” Have some good news for you all: The OnePlus TV is not very far away, at least according to one source. The launch might be soon, so stay tuned. I have very high expectations from it, what about you?”
To compete with the competition in budget television range, OnePlus might have to price the OnePlus TV aggressively against the Xiaomi’s Mi TV. Ishan Agarwal doesn’t mention any launch date but in a follow-up tweet, mentions that the OnePlus TV will not use OLED panel to cut down costs. With almost no confirmed details about the OnePlus TV, some of the rumours and reports suggest that it might feature 4K HDR support and an AI assistant, most likely to be the Google Assistant. Some reports also suggest that OnePlus TV will be an Amazon exclusive device.
CEO Pete Lau also mentioned in a media interview,” The home – perhaps the most important environment experience – is just starting to enjoy the benefits of intelligent connectivity. Something that seems as simple as displaying the photos from your mobile phone to a television is still difficult to achieve. With the development of AI technology, our imagination is endless – and we are looking forward to the future.”
