CEO Pete Lau has said that its upcoming TV will be a premium offering that will compete with the likes of Sony, LG, and Samsung, but not with Xiaomi’s Mi TV. Coming to the TV, it’s expected to be launched in four different sizes. According to Bluetooth Launch Studio (the firm that lists products approved to use Bluetooth) indicate the various variants OnePlus will launch – 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch options. The Chinese manufacturer is has confirmed the sizes yet.
One of the TV variants might support 4K HDR, thanks to the panel. OnePlus in the past had hinted that it is pondering on developing its own processing chipsets and set the benchmarks at Sony’s image quality. It will also look into its audio experience as the inclusion of Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos is hotly anticipated.
“One more key selling point that I want to highlight is that we are really optimizing the Android TV system which I don’t see a lot of brands in the Indian market [doing]. Because of our great partnership with Google, not only do we use their Android TV system but we also optimize it very deeply,” Lau said.
Talking about the price, Pete Lau said, “Because of the strategic partnership with Amazon, our price may be slightly cheaper than their [Sony and Samsung] products, but it won’t be half the price.” He also described the OnePlus TV as a “flagship killer,” a term which critics bestowed on its smartphones.
