OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau announced OnePlus TV last year in September in their forums. We did not get any major updates regarding that since then, until now. OnePlus TV was expected to be launched in the country in 2020.
However, a tweet from tipster Ishan Agarwal suggests that OnePlus TV might arrive in India way before that. The tweet read, “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? #OnePlus #OnePlusTV”
In another tweet, he wrote, “But since I don’t think it will be OLED, I would personally not buy it. I just love how good my LG C8 OLED is and the next TV coming to my home has to be OLED. I still think that in case you are looking for Premium TVs- Sony and LG are the best ones.”
The OnePlus TV will give competition to Xiaomi’s Mi TV lineup which has changed the whole TV market in India with its low priced Android and Smart TVs.
In a previous media interview, Lau had said, “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,”
There is still no official word about the specifications, price or the exact launch dates of the OnePlus TV but going by the OnePlus trend, we can expect premium features at an affordable price.
