OnePlus, the global smart device manufacturer, today revealed that the company will extend its smartphone UI work with Google to its smart TV segment as well. Given the brand’s unwavering focus on creating a premium user experience, the highly awaited ‘OnePlus TV’ will run on Android TV.
The India-exclusive OnePlus TV will be an Android TV device and will come fully loaded with the Google Assistant, Chromecast built-in, and Google Play, to name a few. OnePlus TV is the company’s first step towards ascending to the next level of intelligent connectivity. With the Google Assistant, OnePlus TV gives you the ability to access your favourite entertainment, get answers from Google on-screen like weather updates, manage tasks like seeing your calendar, and control smart home devices – all with your voice.
To provide further light on the collaboration, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India said, “These past five years have been about constant exploration, diving deep into how best we can use technology and innovation and Google has been strategic to us in India since the beginning, furthering our efforts towards our goal. Now, as we venture into newer segments with OnePlus TV, we are very excited to bring together our collective knowledge by extending that work. We believe that with our combined expertise, we can move ever closer to improve the human experience through simplicity, efficiency, and intelligent functionality.”
Building a network of premium Android devices is OnePlus’ vision, the collaboration with Google will address the gap between unparalleled connectivity and seamless integration between all OnePlus offerings.
Earlier this week, OnePlus announced that the much anticipated OnePlus TV has received immense interest from its community and has made ‘Notify Me’ registrations available at its long-standing online sales partner, Amazon.in. With the dedicated page of Amazon.in now live, users can subscribe to receive the latest updates on OnePlus’ first-ever TV up until launch and open sales.
