“OnePlus TV comes with Assistant and Alexa voice assistants for hands-free voice control and smartphone integration”
OnePlus TV is expected to launch alongside OnePlus 7T in India on September 26th. The company has been teasing newer details at regular intervals. It recently mentioned the TV would come with a dedicated Gamma Magic Colour picture processor for realistic picture quality, and teased premium kevlar back and the remote control design. Now, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau has teased seamless smartphone integration; the ability to control the smart TV with the smartphone. The description reads, “Fast, smooth, seamless control through your smartphone.” While this doesn’t give away much, we can expect some features baked into OxygenOS to make the phone act as a TV remote, or perhaps an app like the one that allows users to control their Fire TV Sticks. Besides this, the TV comes with Assistant and Alexa voice assistants for hands-free voice control.
The OnePlus TV is likely to run on a customised version of Android TV platform with promised updates for three years and content integration. The smart TV remote control comes with a USB Type-C port for charging, a OnePlus logo and other navigation and menu buttons. It’s already confirmed to come with eight speakers with a total of 50 watt sound output. It would come with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It is said to rock a 55-inch QLED display.
The OnePlus TV is said to draw its power from the MediaTek MT5670 processor that is coupled with 3GB of RAM. It is also expected to come with various OTT apps pre-installed for content. The OnePlus TV will be available exclusively via Amazon.in during the Great Indian Festival Sale, but it hit offline retail stores as well. We should know more information in the next few days.
