OnePlus will launch its first-ever TV, says CEO

SAN FRANCISCO-OnePlus thinks it can change the way smart TVs work. "It will take post-release software updates to fully realize its vision, though, says the company", the report notes.

Right now, OnePlus is best-known for its low-priced, high-powered smartphones - at $530, its current-model OnePlus 6 is half the cost of an Apple iPhone X, but nearly as powerful.

Just like its earlier products, the company is also involving the OnePlus community to shape its new product. The company is also looking at ways to seamlessly connect the TV with your phone, which would allow it to show reminders and surface traffic information for your daily commute. Few Android phones, if any, get city block-spanning lines of prospective buyers when a new model comes out.

After rocking up the smartphone market, OnePlus is now all set to debut with its first Smart TV.

Everyone knows that OnePlus is gearing up to launch a flagship smartphone later this year.

We'll bring you more news as soon as we hear.

"At present, we feel the current market of TVs is still feeling quite traditional in their functionality and experience".

It would be incredible for a manufacturer to come along and show all the TV companies how they could and should be integrating their TVs with smartphones and making full use of the AI's and digital assistants available right now but let's face it, it most likely will never land here.

At present, it's unknown whether the manufacturer plans to release the OnePlus TV outside of its native China, though it's probably safe to assume that it'll be sold in same territories where the company now sells its phones. "It won't be something that's ideal and absolutely complete and revolutionary from the start", said Lau.

For now, there's no launch date for OnePlus TV, but Lau says that it will be unveiled sometime next year. These efforts - all of those long nights and weekends in the office contributed by this team and community have paved an excellent foundation on which to build the OnePlus TV experience.

OnePlus will likely differentiate the OnePlus TV on the basis of cost. I mean, what is a smart TV if it isn't just a giant smartphone that doesn't make calls?

A Samsung smart TV.

According to the CEO, they plan to reshape the experience of home entertainment with the help of intelligent connectivity features on the OnePlus Smart TV. "In continuing our relentless exploration of improving the world around us, we would like to take the first step in building a connected human experience", OnePlus has explained on announcing the OnePlus TV.

That means beaming photos and home videos to your TV without needing to worry about a clunky app or third-party service.
