Recently, OnePlus founder and CEO, Liu Zuohu, recently released a poster which confirms that the OnePlus TV will be launched in India on July 2. The poster also reveals some new details about OnePlus TV 2020. One of them is that the TV will be equipped with ultra-thin bezels and carbon fiber patterns. In addition, this device will be thinner than OnePlus 8. This is quite interesting because OnePlus 8 is only 8mm thick. Furthermore, OnePlus TV 2020 will arrive with rotating speakers.
In a recent interview, Liu Zuohu stated that OnePlus hopes to differentiate its products by focusing on two key points (design and user experience). The new OnePlus TV product line is a budget-friendly device with a high price-to-performance ratio. We already have confirmation that the price of this TV in India will be less than 20,000 rupees ($264).
Well, a major selling point of OnePlus TV 2020 is its thickness. This TV is only 6.8mm thin, which means it is 1.2mm thinner than OnePlus 8. In addition, the TV will use with slender bezels to provide an immersive viewing experience. Moving over to the rear, there are reports that the rear has a carbon fiber texture. This is similar to the flagship Q1 series. Although the size has not yet been announced, there are rumors that there may be 32-inch and 43-inch versions. However, Liu Zuohu confirmed that the screen ratio will be as high as 95%.
In an interview, Liu Zuohu said: “Although we are expanding into an affordable high-end market, we have always attached great importance to design. In our borderless design, the ratio of the screen to the body is 95%, which is obvious. This is very common in high-end TVs, but it is a prominent feature in high-end economy products”. As previously confirmed, the TV will have a 93% DCI-P3 color gamut and Dolby Vision.
As for the speakers, the new OnePlus TV will use an innovative sound arrangement. The speakers can rotate by 90°. This configuration will allow two large full-range speakers to be available on the new OnePlus TV 2020. According to reports, the speakers of the new OnePlus TV 2020 will make the bass 50% deeper. Also, there are speculations that this product will be available on Amazon India. However, there is no indication if it will find its way into the more competitive Chinese market.
