The new OnePlus TV is carefully crafted to deliver a smarter, more intuitive and seamless internet experience from outdoors to indoors through the integration of the most advanced software and hardware available. OnePlus entered the TV industry with the same “Never Settle” mindset it brought to the smartphone industry almost 6 years ago when it released its first devices in 2014. The launch of the TV brings more than a premium television set, offering industry-leading picture and sound quality, stunning exterior design and curated the streaming experience.
OnePlus has redefined what role the TV plays in the home through a seamless connection between the smartphone and TV. OnePlus TV introduces a new device built to be the central hub of a connected smart home, integrating the different technological aspects of everyday life by converging mobile with space-based technologies.
The OnePlus TV is the company’s first step into the connected home market, bringing seamless and intelligent interactions with immersive content consumption into the center of the home. Hungama, Eros and Zee5 content has been deep-integrated into the OnePlus Play dashboard. Other content partners include Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, SonyLiv and Youtube.
The OnePlus TV will first be available to its passionate and supportive users in India, where the company is celebrating five years of exceptional, community-driven growth. Though the TV is only available in India currently, plans to launch it in China, Europe, and North America in the future, after securing relationships with local and regional content providers, are underway.
OnePlus TV features superior craftsmanship and embodies the company’s elegant and minimalist design philosophy. The TV body boasts a slim unified profile to fit into any living room setting and interior décor without adding clutter. With a nearly bezel-less screen and a moving soundbar, OnePlus’ smart TV provides an even more immersive and riveting home entertainment experience.
OnePlus TV’s 55-inch 4K QLED display is capable of delivering a more vivid and dynamic picture quality for content viewed on the screen. With a very high color range of NTSC 120%, images and videos are always rendered in crisp quality and more vibrant colors. With Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support, images displayed on the OnePlus TV are constantly optimized on a scene-by-scene (and even frame-by-frame) basis, rendering more detail and better color accuracy to be displayed across all content displayed.
The OnePlus TV remote looks somewhat like the older Apple TV remote since it is simple with a few buttons. It comes with a Google Assistant button which triggers voice control, plus various controls -menu, home, back – and there’s a volume rocker on the side. The top section is a multi-direction controller.
A removable cover on the back of the TV gives you access to all the ports. For cable management, you can put the cover back after attaching your cables in place to hide the mess of multiple wires.
OnePlus TV houses a powerful Gamma Color Magic chipset to help with picture processing and rendering. Also, the alluring sound nestled within the OnePlus TV is a powerful 50W 8-speaker set up to deliver the most dynamic and three-dimensional soundstage. With 4 full-range front-facing speakers, 2 front-facing tweeters for the highs and 2 rear subwoofers for the bass, a richer and more immersive audio experience is established for replenishing the living room with the most haunting audio from the OnePlus TV.
The device works by using a collection of carefully optimized algorithms to deliver smoother, clearer and more natural viewing experience with videos whether it’s ultra HD content streamed online or over satellite services.

For connectivity, the OnePlus TVs are Bluetooth- and Wi-Fi enabled. The TVs also come with built-in Chromecast so users can cast content from their phones directly to the TV without additional hardware.
An ambitious effort that doesn’t quite match its hype. The OnePlus Tv has a vibrant 4K QLED panel and great sound but its overall design is questionable. The slide-out soundbar and chrome base hearken back to the ’90s, and the remote is just not usable. For what it costs, there are plenty of better alternatives available from Samsung and LG.
OnePlus TV pricing comes in different variables as follows:
