China’s OnePlus has officially confirmed in a tweet that the OnePlus TV will launch on September 26. The company has also revealed a teaser video that shows a man’s OnePlus 7 Pro being enveloped by a huge circle of fire, along with a few other things such as a traditional CRT TV. In the end, a text reads “Evolution is around the corner,” which indicates that the TV could be operated by OnePlus phones as well.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau in a separate tweet confirmed that users will be able to control the OnePlus TV with their phones. While Lau has not officially said that the phone should be a OnePlus device, we believe it could be an Android phone.

According to the image in the tweet, OnePlus could also bring a dedicated app to connect the TV to an Android device.

The OnePlus TV will launch at the Indira Gandhi Arena in New Delhi at 7 p.m. on September 26. The company will also host online streaming on OnePlus.com and on OnePlus Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube account for the US. We believe India will be the first country to receive both the products first.

To bring an enhanced audio experience to users, OnePlus has also collaborated with Dolby Laboratories to incorporate Dolby Vision imaging technology and Dolby Atmos audio.

Earlier this week, a new leak has claimed that the OnePlus TV will support Amazon Alexa, which simply means you would be able to control the upcoming 55-inch 4K QLED television using your voice along with the Google Assistant – thanks to a dedicated button on the remote.

According to Lau’s interview in Business Insider, the OnePlus TV will sport 4K resolution quantum dot or QLED display panels and will run a skinned version of Google’s Android TV platform. The TV is expected to run on Android with built-in Alexa or Google Assistant and would also offer support for HDR10 playback and Dolby Atmos surround sound technology which can be even found in budget 4K TVs. The TV would be available in a variety of screen sizes – from 43-inches to 75-inches.

The TV may not come with OLED panels, considered to be more premium and better than current LED panels, Lau said. OnePlus TV could leverage artificial intelligence and next-generation 5G connectivity.
