OnePlus TV specifications

The OnePlus TV Q1 and OnePlus TV Q1 Pro both flaunt an almost similar specs sheet. The only difference is that the Pro model has sliding soundbar and eight speakers instead of four. The smart TVs come clad in a carbon fibre pattern back panel with 55-inch border-less display and matte finish. The screen has QLED display, 4K resolution, dynamic contrast ratio, Dolby Vision, and “by far the highest” 120 percent NTSC colour gamut. The 50W speakers on both models are fine-tuned by Dolby Atmos for a holistic sound experience.

The OnePlus TV Q1 series runs Android TV platform.

The OnePlus TV Q1 series rocks Gamma Colour Magic chipset, which is said to enable a wider colour gamut on the TV’s screen, and MediaTek MT6750 chipset ticking at its core. The TVs run the Android TV platform and support Google Assistant, Chromecast, Google Play app store, YouTube, and Zee5 apps. Of course, users will be able to access streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video, VOOT, Eros Now, etc, while Netflix will be made available later this year. Hotstar is available on the TV, but its content won’t be recommended on the OxygenPlay carousel. The connectivity options of the OnePlus TVs include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI, and USB.

As far as the Oxygen Play is concerned, the company claims that it’ll solve the pain points of VOD services on current TV products, such as redundant, fragmented, and irrelevant content on the home page. While playing games, you can ask Google Assistant to pause the game using voice commands. If you get a call while watching TV, the OnePlus TV will automatically lower the volume; the volume be turned back up if you do not take the call. Users will get software support for three years, the company said.

“OnePlus has launched Oxygen Video application in cooperation with international and local content providers including YouTube, Prime Video, Eros Now, Hungama, Jio Cinema, Zee5. The app covers local features and international content, exclusive content on shelves, high-quality recommendation, convenient content search (voice search + search aggregation), to provide users with a wonderful, burdenless viewing experience,” OnePlus said.
