What you need to know
- Multiple OnePlus TV models have been certified by the Bluetooth SIG.
- Bluetooth SIG describes all the OnePlus TV models as being a "unique Android TV".
- They will be available in four screen sizes ranging from 43-inch to 75-inch.
In September last year, OnePlus revealed its plans of entering the TV market with a 'premium' offering that would be released sometime in 2019. Now, it looks like the company may be finally close to formally unveiling its TV lineup. The folks over at MySmartPrice have spotted several listings of the "1+ LED TV" on the Bluetooth SIG website.
The Bluetooth SIG listings reveal the Android-based OnePlus TV will be available in four screen sizes – 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch. Going by the model numbers of the different TVs that have been certified by Bluetooth SIG, OnePlus will be launching its Smart TV in Asian markets initially, focusing on China and India.
The 43-inch model will be sold only in India, while the 75-inch model will be available in China. Apart from the 75-inch model, OnePlus will also release the 55-inch and 65-inch models. All the OnePlus TVs listed on the Bluetooth SIG website are described as having a "unique Android TV" experience, so it looks like OnePlus will layer its own additions on the interface.
However, as Google currently does not allow manufacturers to modify or customize Android TV, it isn't clear what is so unique about the OnePlus TV. Only companies categorized as an operator are allowed to customize Android TV, and OnePlus is unlikely to qualify as one.
In addition to telling us that the OnePlus TVs will run on the Android TV platform and come in four screen sizes, the Bluetooth SIG listings also confirm Bluetooth 5.0 support on all models. Since OnePlus has already confirmed that it will be targeting the "premium" segment, we can expect the company's Smart TVs to have 4K panels, HDR support, and perhaps a few AI-powered features as well.
