Going by the teasers shared by OnePlus and the brand CEO Pete Lau, the upcoming TV series could be aiming to achieve what earlier OnePlus smartphones achieved in the Indian market — premium experience at affordable pricing. Starting this month, Lau had tweeted, “It’s official. We’re making our premium smart TV experience more accessible to our Indian community.” Notably, OnePlus currently has two smart TVs — Q1 and Q1 Pro — under its portfolio, which are not soft on pricing.
Later, Lau confirmed a number of new details about the upcoming affordable TVs in a series of tweets and a blog post. He confirmed that the new TV series will sport the Cinematic Display, 93 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut, Gamma Engine, Dolby Vision, and a bezel-less design.
He tweeted, “Our new Cinematic Display has earned its name with an exceptional DCI-P3 93% color gamut, one of the fullest, most vivid displays of color out there.”
“We’re taking smoothness to the next level with our innovative Gamma Engine to deliver better picture quality at a more affordable price,” Lau said in another tweet.
