At an event last month, OnePlus introduced its OnePlus 7T and OnePlus TV in India. The TV is called the Q1 series and will set potential buyers back Rs 69,900. It is now available to purchase on Amazon India.
The items are manufactured in OnePlus’s home country, China, and then exported to India. However, according to Pete Lau, the company’s CEO, this is the case only until year-end, as OnePlus will start making the TV locally by that time.
Users have the choice to acquire the TV and two variants, OnePlus TV Q1 and OnePlus TV Q1 Pro. They have most of the key features in common except for the sliding soundbar consisting of eight speakers on the Pro model. If you go for this variant, you will have to pay Rs 99,900 for one.
OnePlus TV sports a QLED display measuring 55 inches with 120% NTSC color gamut. Both the Pro and non-Pro versions feature Atmos and Dolby Vision with 50W output. The bezels are minimized for all the four sides and the device comes with a circular stand you can use to mount it on the wall.
Under the hood, OnePlus TV runs on Android TV 9.0 and comes with a game mode, OnePlus Connect, and Oxygen Play. Other specs include RAM of 3GB, Mali G51 GPU, and MediaTek MT5670 chipset. For an improvement in image quality, there is a customized Gamma Color magic processor.
OnePlus TV’s remote is made of aluminum with a USB Type-C port. You will have a button with OnePlus logo, an options button, a home button, a back button, one for Google Assistant, and a directional rocker.
With the OnePlus Connect app, you can also control the TV from your smartphone. For OTT services, OnePlus has collaborated with Zee TV, Eros Now, and Amazon Prime. Netflix will be available shortly.
