OnePlus officially enters the Smart TV market and does so with a product that was often anticipated in the past few weeks.

There are 8 speakers available in the Q1 Pro variant – 2 woofers in the soundbar (removable), 4 fronts and 2 tweeters for a total of 50W – and 4 in the basic model, while the QLED panel has been “customized” to further improve performance. a Quality that is also guaranteed by the custom chip and image processing algorithms. The heart is the MediaTek MT5670 processor, Cortex-A53 quad-core CPU clocked at up to 1.5GHz.

OnePlus Connect allows you to connect your smartphone to the TV to interact with the device even more easily. Not only that, but with Alexa, it is possible to switch on the TV and access the Oxygen Play interface based on Android TV (9 Pie) which can be controlled directly from the smartphone with the touch controls and the keyboard and with the voice via Google Assistant.
