The wait for one of the most anticipated launches from Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus will be put to rest tonight, as the company will unveil the OnePlus TV and OnePlus 7T at a Special Event in New Delhi. The 'Pro' variant of the OnePlus 7T will be introduced to the world on 15 October.
The event will be live streamed on OnePlus' YouTube and Facebook pages and company will shoot out live updates on its Twitter handle. You can click on the links to get redirected or watch the live stream embedded at the end of this page.
The OnePlus TV will be the showstopper of the event. It will sport a unique design and will be powered by Android with OnePlus' custom UI running atop. The OnePlus TV is confirmed to sport a 55-inch 4K QLED display with support for Dolby Vision accompanied by eight speakers with a combined output of 50W.
The company recently teased a new feature that lowers the volume of the TV when a user receives a call. This seems to be exclusive OnePlus smartphone users for now.
The TV is also expected to ship with a Bluetooth remote that sports a unique metal unibody construction and comes with no alpha-numeric keypad.
The company has been putting out timely updates about the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro on its forum; the latest one talks about the fast charging times of the new smartphones. OnePlus said a 'smooth display deserves faster charging' while showing off its charging tech on Twitter. It claimed the new smartphones can be charged from 0-50% in 30 minutes.
OnePlus has announced that it will bring its much praised 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display to the OnePlus 7T. It was previously available only in the Pro variant of the OnePlus 7-series. The display will also have a smaller notch.
The company also gave us the first look at the official renders of the OnePlus 7T. The smartphone will have a centrally placed triple camera setup in a circular dial.
OnePlus commenced pre-orders for the new OnePlus smartphones last week. Potential buyers can head over to Amazon, OnePlus experience stores and other authorised stores to pre-book the OnePlus 7T. They will receive one-time accidental screen replacement valid for 6 months from date of purchase, 50% off on Bullets Wireless 2 and an instant discount of ₹1,500 for transactions on select bank debit and credit cards.
The new devices would be sold on Amazon. Amazon has confirmed the OnePlus TV will be available during the upcoming festive sale, along with other OnePlus smartphones. The OnePlus 7T is likely to go on sale on a later date, some time in October.
To let its fans experience the newly launched smartphones, OnePlus has announced pop-up stores across eight major cities. These include Mumbai, Bengaluru, New Delhi, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Pune. Pop-up customers can avail an instant discount of ₹1,500 on purchase of the new smartphones and early birds will receive OnePlus accessories including backpacks, smartphone accessories, hoodies and more.
