OnePlus is one of the most consolidated brands in the Smartphone sector that has always tried to compete in the high range with products with a very good price / specifications, today we echo a new product outside of its classic scope, OnePlus TV is a Smart TV that aims to compete in the high-end of this sector. This new TV is still in an initial development phase but aims to guide its design towards integration with the use of the Smartphone and IA.
The new OnePlus TV as described by the founder of the company Pete Lau wants to have an AI assistant similar to Alexa or Google Assistant but with more visual effects. It remains to be seen on what basis the product will be created because it is difficult to imagine that they will create from scratch (Oxygen TV?) an AI system, with alternatives that can be easily implemented. To help this new Smart TV it seems that we will have an integrated camera and possibly a microphone as in the new Sony Master Series 2018.
The specifications of this new OnePlus TV are still unknown but it is expected to reach the market in 2019, as partners it can have many alternatives in the sector such as the SoC’s of Amlogic, Mediatek or even Qualcomm with which they have an excellent relationship. At the level of OnePlus certifications you will not have problems in showing 4K HDR content on platforms such as Netflix or Amazon with which you already have certified devices. Without a doubt an interesting product although a TV-Box would also be good to compete with Xiaomi and NVidia.
