After years of development and speculation, OnePlus is about to release its first high-end TV in India. During the past few weeks, we got a lot of details including specifications for the new product. Now we get one more piece of information that will surely be good for those who are willing to jump in this new OnePlus product.
The company’s CEO, Pete Lau, has announced that the TV will get at least three years of Android TV software updates. This is the first time that a company using Android TV promises a support window like this one. It’ll definitively be a good reason to purchase the TV. If the OnePlus TV support offered will be similar to what we see on their smartphones, then we can expect one of the best software supports available in the industry.
If you think that Android distribution among manufacturers is a mess, then wait until you see how thing are going for Android TV. Users are plagued with the inconsistent delivery of big updates, bugs that remain unfixed for long times, to not forget about the performance issues that we can find in different TVs. Interesting enough, the Nvidia Shield TV console offers the best Android TV support so far. The rest of the competition basically lives in a big jungle.
With this promise, OnePlus is not only giving one more reason for OnePlus TV enthusiasts to buy the product. The company is also aiming in customers who had a bad experience with Android TVs in general. According to Lau, the OnePlus TV will set the standard for their upcoming IoT products. For that reason, Android TV seemed like the only choice to keep its traditional “Fast and Smooth” user experience.
