Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is set to launch brand new devices on Thursday. The Pete Lau-led company is expected to launch the yearly successors to its 'flagship killing' devices and a brand new member in the company's lineup—the OnePlus TV.
The event will take place at 7 pm inside the Indira Gandhi Arena, New Delhi. Here's what you need to know about the launches:
All eyes will be on the OnePlus TV, that was first announced last year by the company's CEO himself.
The OnePlus TV will sport a unique design and will 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 bears resemblance to an Apple TV remote. Unlike remotes from other TV makers, the OnePlus TV remote will have minimal buttons, and media reports show OnePlus will omit the alpha-numeric keypad.
OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro
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 7. The smartphone will have a centrally placed triple camera setup in a circular dial.
The company has been mum about the OnePlus 7T Pro.
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 and 7T Pro. 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 will 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 and OnePlus 7T Pro are likely to go on sale on a later date, some time in October.
