Back in September 2018, OnePlus has revealed its plan to foray into Smart TV market in 2019. While the company launched the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones last month, there is no word mentioned about the OnePlus TV. According to the reliable leakster Ishan Agarwal, the company might very soon launch its first ever smart TV. The company has already confirmed the OnePlus TV to come with a built-in camera.
OnePlus will also find an innovative solution to offer privacy protection. However, there is no information about any other details including the launch date. Just like its smartphones, OnePlus TV will also compete with the premium smart TV. However, we don’t think it will be possible for OnePlus to match top-notch hardware of the OLED smart TVs from brands like Samsung and Sony. Just like the Xiaomi smart TVs, the OnePlus TV might also offer best-in-class hardware for its aggressive price tag.
As seen with the Oxygen OS, the OS of its smart TV could be something special to look out for. While you can already find TVs with built-in Alexa or Google Assistant, lest see what OnePlus brings new to the table. The company is also crowdsourcing the name for the OnePlus, it went the same way for the naming of its custom OS. The OnePlus TV should be offering basic things like HDR10 playback and Dolby Atmos surround sound technology which can be even found in budget 4K TVs.
We expect the smart TV launch to happen much before the launch of OnePlus7T smartphones in Q4 2019. As seen with the OnePlus 7 smartphones, we might also start leaks about the OnePlus TV event in the coming days. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
