At its launch event in India, the company also announced an Android-powered TV, marking the companys entry into a completely different industry.
Second, there is a soundbar with eight speakers, integrated into the OnePlus TVs design. In fact, OnePlus CEO and Founder Pete Lau had already shared some features in previously reported teasers. After that launch was completed the OnePlus UK site had its own launch page go live which seems odd that if they were launching the same product why would they wait another two weeks and have another big launch event. The smart TVs will go on sale in India from September 28th onwards via Amazon. Interested buyers can head to Amazon India and the OnePlus website to make the purchase. The OnePlus TVs boast of a premium design and are clad in carbon fibre at the rear. OnePlus also knows the importance of a snappy UI so it promises to not include bloatware. It also offers 50 percent off on battery replacement, buyback program, and other offers.
Before we get to my thoughts, let's talk about the pricing and availability.
Over on the front is a 6.55-inch AMOLED FHD display that has a refresh rate of 90Hz, like the OnePlus 7 Pro. Moreover, OnePlus 7T will get a 20:9 aspect ratio and a notch on top of the tag, barely taking on any dwelling.
Over at the back is Corning Gorilla Glass with somewhat of a matte finish. The classic waterdrop notch exists, still however now it is 31.46 per cent smaller. The 7T also comes with support for HDR10+ imaging and UFS 3.0 storage for fast file transfers. The anticipated device arrives with an impressive triple-camera setup and an enhanced camera app. And the cameras have been remixed: There's a 48-megapixel main Sony sensor, along with a 12-megapixel 2x f/2.2 zoom and a 16-megapixel, 117-degree wide camera.
And the company says that by combining OIS (optical image stabilisation) and EIS (electronic image stabilisation), its HIS (hybrid image stabilisation) delivers smoother videos. The device unveiled this week has the same wide and ultrawide lens specs and a better telephoto module with a 12MP lens. The basic edition costs INR 69,90 and a "pro" model is priced at INR 99,900. Earlier this year, new details about the screen were released and now this week, the OnePlus TV has been officially announced- featuring 4K UHD resolution, HDR and Android TV baked in. On top of that users can get up to Rs 3,620.00 off on exchange. OnePlus has also added "Gamma Color Magic" processor for image processing. In addition, it also offers a sliding soundbar that slides down whenever the users switch the TV on. Using OnePlus connect, you can use your phone to connect to Oxygen Play and activate the remote features using a virtual trackpad on the phone. The device comes backed by a 4000mAh battery with 30W Warp Charge support. It's why you'll sometimes see the Xiaomi Mi TV Pro referred to as a "full-screen" TV, but there does not seem to be a huge difference in border size between the Xiaomi and OnePlus sets.
Dolby Atmos support works to create a virtualised surround sound from its built-in speakers, which here translates to a bigger, slightly more spacious delivery when we stream compatible content (as it does on most Atmos phones) but not exactly "surround" sound.
