OnePlus TV will also integrate with Amazon Alexa skills

OnePlus is launching its own smart TV, that much is already an established fact. What isn't yet completely known is what form it will take, both in terms of hardware and software. The company has talked a lot about how the OnePlus TV practically takes Android TV to the next level, focusing on its very close relationship with Google. What it hasn't been really talking about is how close it also is to Amazon to the extent that the smart TV is even getting its own set of Alexa skills.

OnePlus will stop aggressively killing apps in the background

OnePlus will stop aggressively killing apps in the background

When OnePlus began its claim to Never Settle, it included a more vanilla Android experience in its promise. Over the years, it built its own identity with the Oxygen OS, mixing a near-vanilla Android with its own custom features. Unfortunately, one of those features involves a rather aggressive memory and battery management system that the company is now promising it would be easing up on in the near but unspecified future.

OnePlus TV remote looks very, very familiar

OnePlus TV remote looks very, very familiar

Some manufacturers and designers are only now trying to aim for minimalist designs but Apple has long been touting minimalism for ages. So much so that almost every attempt at adopting such design would inevitably be compared to Apple. Sometimes that is warranted, sometimes it's quite a stretch. Whether by design or by accident, the OnePlus TV's newly revealed remote will suffer the same fate and, from the looks of it, could also suffer from Apple's missteps plus some of its own.

Android 10 rollout: stable Essential, beta OnePlus, confusing Xiaomi

Android 10 rollout: stable Essential, beta OnePlus, confusing Xiaomi

As leaked before, Google finally and formally released Android 10, previously known as Android Q, to the world. That, however, might not matter much to most Android users who will still have to wait for their phone makers to roll out the update to their phones, if at all. It does mean that the guessing and waiting game for users has started but, at least for three brands outside of Google's own Pixels, they might not have to wait that long.

OnePlus 7T renders baffle and disappoint

Although OnePlus news of late has mostly been about its upcoming smart TV, it may still have or two smartphones prepared for this year. Just like in the past three years, it may have a OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro in the works, though it's still unclear how much the two will differ from the early 2019 flagships. Renders of the smartphone have now surfaced and while it may seem to confirm rumors of a triple camera setup, OnePlus seems to have taken a rather odd route to get there.

OnePlus TV specs and Android TV ambition revealed

OnePlus TV specs and Android TV ambition revealed

It was definitely surprising, if not puzzling, that OnePlus would jump onto the smart TV segment. Especially when even its own fans think the company has still much work to do, without messing up its image with questionable marketing stunts. At the same time, it might also be the perfect opportunity for OnePlus to prove it isn't a one-trick pony, especially at a time when the smartphone market is said to be slowing down. Given its specs and some details from the company's CEO himself, it does seem that OnePlus TV is just the beginning of a bigger, grander OnePlus vision.

OnePlus TV’s secret weapon is Samsung display tech

Earlier this month, OnePlus confirmed that it does indeed have a TV in the works. The company hasn't shared very many details about this TV yet, seemingly preferring to reveal things about it gradually. So far, we've seen the logo and we've learned that it'll launch first in India, and today, OnePlus is sharing the first details about the TV's actual hardware.

OnePlus TV will launch in a single market at first

OnePlus TV will launch in a single market at first

OnePlus has always painted itself as somewhat of an industry rebel. With a slogan like "Never Settle", it challenged the mobile market status quo and launched a premium flagship smartphone with a price to die for. It now wants to do the same for what it bills as a stagnating TV industry. The rules of the game, however, are slightly different which is why the company is making what is perhaps its most unusual business decision so far. The OnePlus TV will, for a while, be limited to one and only one market: India.
