OnePlus TV teased again by Pete Lau, Kevlar finish confirmed

  • An image shared by OnePlus CEO on Twitter reveals the unique Kevlar finish of the upcoming OnePlus TV,
  • It also gives us the first look of the OnePlus TV's swivel stand design

OnePlus TV's launch is right around the corner and the company has confirmed some major details of the device. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau on Tuesday shared an image teasing the back of the device.

'No detail is too small,' wrote Lau in a Twitter post with the image of the OnePlus TV.

The image, that displays the unique Kevlar finish, also sheds light on the OnePlus TV's stand design, which seems to be different from other TVs in the market. The stand seems to have a swivel mechanism and is expected to hold the TV from the top, providing easy access to the ports at the bottom of the device.

Earlier, the company confirmed several key details of the device. An Amazon landing page for the product revealed that the TV will feature a 55-inch 4K QLED display with support for Dolby Vision. This will be accompanied by eight speakers with a combined output of 50W that would be powered by Dolby Atmos sound.

Lau in the past also said that the OnePlus TV will run the Android TV platform and guaranteed software updates for at least three years. He also said that the TV will offer access to Google Assistant and the Play Store.

In the forum post for the TV's introduction last month, Lau clarified that the company's goal is to offer the same fast and smooth experience of OnePlus phones for the OnePlus TV, hence they went for Android TV. Adding to the seamlessness, it is expected to run a modified version of Android TV OS with OnePlus' OxygenOS UI.

Media reports have shown in the past that the TV might come in three display sizes of 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch.

An image of the OnePlus TV remote hinted at a slim form factor, bearing resemblance to Apple TV's remote. It received Bluetooth SIG certification last month and was shown to have five buttons on the top. The remote is likely to pair with the OnePlus TV via Bluetooth.

The OnePlus TV is rumoured to be launched this month, however, the company hasn't confirmed the tentative launch schedule. It is widely expected to be launched on 26 September.
