Recently, smartphone companies have been expanding their portfolios with smart TVs. And this is understandable. Android TV is becoming more affordable, and people are more interested than ever in purchasing a modern device.
Well-known companies like OnePlus, Nokia, Xiaomi, Realme and Honor have already launched their products in this segment. Oppo plans to release its smart TV based on the patterns of its competitors.
Oppo prepares to launch its first smart TV in October
During the Oppo Developer Conference 2020, officials announced that the company’s ecosystem will be expanded with a TV that will launch in October.
Yi Wei, CEO of Oppo, did not provide details on the upcoming TV, but clarified that its release will be a key step towards expanding the company’s ecosystem of devices. Rumors point to two sizes – 55″ and 65″, with different remote controls. The TV should offer unique features, but which ones are currently unknown.
Considering that Oppo’s BBK holding colleagues OnePlus and Realme have already released their smart TVs, it should come as no surprise that Oppo has decided to release their device. The only surprising thing is that not so soon.
