Back in 2019, OnePlus took the plunge into the TV market, and there has been no looking back since. In a short period, the company has established itself as a popular smart TV brand and now is one of the top five smart TV brands in the country as per Counterpoint Research report. OnePlus is adding to its success with the launch of its new TV Y1S and TV Y1S Edge models. At first glance, they look like two stunning options that are ready to enhance your TV-watching experience with their advanced technologies. Both the OnePlus TV Y1S and OnePlus TV Y1S Edge models come in 32-inch and 43-inch options and are available to purchase from today. Let us give you an overview of their offerings.
Gorgeous and vivid HDR visuals
The 32-inch options of the OnePlus TV Y1S and OnePlus TV Y1S Edge offer HD visuals, while the 43-inch variants deliver full HD visuals. What’s common between all four models is the HDR support. All four TVs support the HDR10+, HDR10, and HLG standards for delivering a superior viewing experience. The brighter and sharper visuals are full of depth and vivid details, and users are going to enjoy watching their favourite movies and TV shows on these TVs.
The visuals are given a further boost by the Gamma Engine that’s present on both the new OnePlus TVs. It uses AI to identify the content and optimise display quality to best showcase the visuals. The Gamma Engine allows these TVs to deliver dynamic contrast, better colours, and more overall clarity. Furthermore, the OnePlus TV Y1S Edge has another big advantage in the display department in the form of TÜV Rheinland protection. This technology intelligently lowers the blue light emissions from the display to reduce eye fatigue and ensure eye comfort.
Stunning Dolby-powered audio
Powerful audio is on offer through both these OnePlus TVs. Their respective speakers provide razor-sharp, high-definition sound, perfect for everything from watching movies to enjoying sports. While the OnePlus TV Y1S grabs 20W speakers, Y1S Edge comes with 24W speakers. What’s common for both the TVs is Dolby Audio support. This technology is designed to bring out the best audio quality from any content you’re watching, whether it’s a live broadcast, cable TV, OTT content, or a download. Every scene gets crystal-clear and rich sound thanks to Dolby Audio.
Seamless connection with other OnePlus devices for an enhanced experience
The presence of the OnePlus Connect 2.0 technology means OnePlus TV Y1S and Y1S Edge users can seamlessly connect their smartphones with these TVs. It turns the phone into an advanced and feature-rich remote. What’s great is that it works even when there’s no Wi-Fi or data connection. This means casting local videos will be as easy as ever. The Remote Kids Mode Control feature onboard OnePlus Connect 2.0 allows you to manage your Kids Mode to ensure healthy content for your kids. A Timer feature also makes its way into the app, providing you with the ability to have the TV automatically turned off at a particular time.
In addition, the OnePlus TV Y1S and Y1S Edge even support Miracast and DLNA and come with built-in Chromecast support. That means casting any kind of content shouldn’t be any trouble. Seamless connectivity with other OnePlus devices is also available with these new smart TVs. That means, you can just flip open the OnePlus Buds case, and the TV will immediately prompt you with a connection request. Furthermore, a connected OnePlus Watch gives you the ability to turn the TV on and off. A Smart Sleep Control feature turns the TV off whenever the watch detects that you’ve dozed off.
A host of smart features
The Android TV 11 platform powers these two new OnePlus TVs. Among the special additions is the ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), which enhances the output offered by gaming consoles. Google Assistant is integrated into the software for voice-based commands. Both the OnePlus TV Y1S and Y1S Edge get a Smart Manager that can accelerate the TV’s system speed by quickly freeing up storage space, among other things. Its Remote Diagnosis feature automatically identifies and resolves issues, which is of great convenience. All these smart features and connectivity additions allow users to turn their TVs into smart home hubs, greatly enriching their daily lives.
The first thing that strikes you about the new TVs is their bezel-less nature. Aside from giving them stunning looks, this also enhances the immersion levels made possible by their already-splendid displays. As if these attractive aesthetics weren’t enough, the OnePlus TV Y1S Edge also gets a metallic coating on the bottom bezel, which gives it a shimmering glow.
