It is said that the OnePlus TV will come in four sizes of 43/55/65/75 inches. Moreover, the 55-inch version will adopt the QLED screen. As for the hardware, our protagonist will sport a MediaTek MT5670 processor, 3GB memory, support 4K playback, and run on Android 9.0 operating system. Of course, it will also support AI voice assistant and Bluetooth remote control.
The OnePlus series smartphones are known for their excellent performance. As you know, every year, this manufacturer releases two flagships models – one for each half. At the moment, we are waiting for the OnePlus 7T. So we are waiting for the OnePlus TV to come for the same top-notch niche. However, there are still many questions that give us no truce. Say, what voice assistant will it use? Will the latter be a self-developed software or anything else? In fact, there are many options, such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Microsoft Cortana, and so on.
As more and more manufacturers begin to enter the TV field, there is every reason to think they have further-going goals for the smart home system. As you know, now, smart TVs have become the central product for smart homes. Xiaomi did the same a few years ago. And now, it easily launches new smart home appliances one after another.
Interestingly, apart from OnePlus, there are other traditional smartphone makers that are entering the TV market. As you know, Xiaomi has been there for a few years and has managed to become the number 1 TV brand in both China and India. Honor and Huawei have already launched their own Smart Screen products. OPPO is rumored to come in with such a product as well. But this is not surprising. The smartphones will yield their position to IoT. So the manufacturers should get prepared for this.
