“OnePlus TV could launch ahead of the Amazon Great Indian Festival in India and should go on sale the during the sale”
Amazon Great Indian Festival sale with great deals on smartphones and electronics was already announced, though a specific date is yet to be revealed. The e-commerce giant also put up a preview page which shows the bank offers, categories, discounts and the ‘new launches’ section, that also includes the most-anticipated OnePlus TV. This suggests the OnePlus TV could ahead of the Amazon sale in India and go on sale the during the sale. OnePlus TV was in the spotlight for a while now and the company has been teasing newer details in regular intervals building up enough hype for the launch.
Given that Flipkart has scheduled its Big Billion Days sale for August 29th, the Amazon Great Indian Festival sale could be around the same period. OnePlus could hold an event in the country to unveil the TV ahead of the sale officially, with reports pointing to September 26th. It is said to come with a 55-inch QLED display with Dolby Vision and a dedicated Gamma Colour Magic image processor for realistic picture quality. The Amazon listing confirmed Dolby Atmos sound and eight speakers with 50W output. The OnePlus TV is confirmed to run on the Android TV platform with customised UI, integrated content apps, and seamless smartphone integration. The company is promising three years updates.
The OnePlus TV is said to be powered by the MediaTek MT5670 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. It recently teased the Kevlar back, suggesting premium build quality. OnePlus also revealed the Apple TV-like remote control that has a dedicated Google Assistant button and the TV could also come with Alexa voice support. Since the Amazon sale is likely to kickstart in the next couple of weeks, we can expect OnePlus to announce the official launch date soon.
Separately, the Amazon Indian Festival sale will also witness the launch of Fossil gen 5 smartwatch as well. It ships with the latest Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform coupled with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage and runs on Wear OS by Google. The smartwatch is also water-resistant for up to 30 meters.
