It was September 2018 when the plans were first revealed, with confirmation that Pete Lau 8211; co-founder of OnePlus 8211; moving over to head a new division in the company. Lau previously worked in the Blu-ray division at Oppo.
One of Twitter8217;s upcoming leakers has revealed that the launch of OnePlus TV isn8217;t too far away. Little has been said since a flurry of interviews in 2018, but we8217;re expecting to see the agenda shift to the TV now that the smartphones are out of the way.
Have some good news for you all: The OnePlus TV is not very far away, at least according to one source. The launch might be soon, so stay tuned. I have very high expectations from it, what about you? #OnePlus #OnePlusTV pic.twitter.com/qzCJnfozi4
Little is known about what the TV will actually offer, except that it wants to challenge the established order. We8217;re expecting it to be low in price, but offer the latest standards, similar to how OnePlus offers those in its smartphones.
What we do know is that it8217;s going to be smart. It8217;s going to be designed to offer a more personalised TV experience, tailored to the individual while also acting as hub for smart home control.
There8217;s no word on design or sizes, or the display technology that OnePlus is planning to use 8211; but competition will be fierce in this space 8211; not just from established players, but from brands like Hisense and TCL.
What OnePlus might offer is a community feel: that8217;s one of the things that has driven smartphone adoption and its fanbase will likely support OnePlus offering an experience that8217;s different to the rest of the TV market.
