[Update 2: Launches Next Month] The OnePlus TV may launch next month and include an OLED model

Update 2 (8/20/2019 @ 1:40 PM ET): OnePlus has officially announced the OnePlus TV will be launching next month.

Update 1 (8/14/2019 @ 1:00 AM ET): OnePlus has officially confirmed the name and logo of its upcoming TV. Unsurprisingly, it will be called “OnePlus TV”. The article from August 13, 2019 is preserved as below.

OnePlus CEO Mr. Pete Lau had expressed his company’s intention to diversify from smartphones into the TV segment. Information on the same was not available for a while, but last week, we finally heard more about the upcoming TV as it passed through Bluetooth SIG certification. The certification listing revealed that the TV will be an LED TV running on Android TV, with model numbers suggesting that the same will be available in four screen sizes: 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch. Now, new information has emerged which sheds light on a possible time frame for the launch of the OnePlus TV.

According to MySmartPrice‘s sources, OnePlus is planning to launch its range of smart TVs in the last week of September 2019. An exact date has not been confirmed yet by the company, but the reporting website suggests it could be September 26, 2019. The source also suggests that OnePlus will be launching an OLED TV variant. BIS certification information suggests that OnePlus is using panels from TPV Display Technologies Pvt. Ltd. for at least one of the variants, which the reporting website claims does not produce an OLED panel. Since we do know that there are multiple TVs to be launched, there could be differentiation in the core technologies present across the variants.

As per previous information, the 43-inch variant could be exclusive to India, while the 75-inch variant could be only for the US and China. Expectations derived from previous statements from OnePlus lean towards the top variants coming in with a 4K HDR display, though the final specification can only be confirmed by OnePlus themselves. It also remains to be seen what other unique features OnePlus adds into its TV lineup to let them stand out from the competition. Pricing also remains a largely unanswered question, and we wouldn’t be surprised if OnePlus attempts to lean towards the higher end of the pricing spectrum.

Update 1: OnePlus TV name and logo confirmed

OnePlus has officially confirmed the name and logo of its upcoming smart TV. Unsurprisingly, the TV will be called OnePlus TV, which is simple and basic as far as names go, but gets the job done. Similarly, the logo for the TV retains the brand logo and does not attempt to morph the branding, but simply adds on the TV suffix at the end.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has announced that the OnePlus TV will be launching next month. The TV will be available in India first, and Lau says they are working to launch the TV in North America, Europe, and China “as soon as we establish partnerships with most of local and regional content providers.” Hopefully it won’t take long for the TV to launch in other markets.
