OnePlus plans to introduce a Smart TV in 2019

  • OnePlus CEO Pete Lau

He fails to go into detail, but suggests that OnePlus wants to work in the "four major environments we experience each day: the home, the workplace, the commute, and being on-the-move". We'll have to wait and see what all it entails, as OnePlus isn't sharing any particulars at the moment. OnePlus also mentions the television will offer a "seamless connectivity" for your phone. It'll come with a focus on image and audio quality.

As of now, the company has not revealed any specifications and features of the upcoming TV. It says that balancing high-quality hardware alongside the latest developments in technology will help it edge out more established rivals. Except for a couple of smart TVs from brands like Sony and VU, there's no real television that lives up to its "smart" offerings. In the process, our team and community have learned a tremendous amount about software, hardware, design, product development, and delivering on the best possible user experience.

Of course, OnePlus knows its limits, with CEO Pete Lau telling Business Insider that the product will take time to develop.

The company is yet to start making its TV and are now asking for suggestions from the consumers. Lau wants to make it easier for you to share photos from your phone to your TV. There's an open forum available on the OnePlus site where you can drop your idea for a name. That only leaves so many possibilities including Google's Android TV and Roku.

OnePlus are hot right now. "And they haven't really well-integrated the internet ... making the experience match with what would be expected in today's connected society", said Lau.




"With this new division, we're excited to explore the total connected user experience that can enhance everyday life", said Lau.

The OnePlus TV will be a hub for that vision, where talking to the TV will become natural (in OnePlus's vision). OnePlus announced over the weekend that they are going to make a OnePlus TV that fits into the smart TV category.

Again it's too early to say. Now OnePlus stepping ahead beyond its popular OnePlus smartphones line up.

Considering how OnePlus prices its products, the OnePlus TV is expected to cost somewhere around Rs 45,000 in India.
