OnePlus TV to support Amazon Alexa

by September 16, 2019 0 comments

One of the most anticipated TV launches of this year is the OnePlus TV event. The device’s features have been leaked several times over the past few months. Now, a new leak has claimed that the 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 the TV’s Alexa Skill page, users would be able to able to turn the TV on/off, mute it, increase/decrease volume, change channels along with other voice-control abilities. Here is a list of Alexa commands seen on Amazon.

Power On / Off: “Alexa, turn on OnePlus TV.”; “Alexa, turn off OnePlus TV.”

Control Volume: “Alexa, set volume to 15 on OnePlus TV.”; “Alexa, raise/lower/adjust the volume by 20 on OnePlus TV.”

Mute / Unmute: “Alexa, mute OnePlus TV.” / “Alexa, unmute OnePlus TV.”

Change Channel: “Alexa, change the channel to 200 on OnePlus TV.”; “Alexa, next channel on OnePlus TV.”; “Alexa, change the channel to PBS on OnePlus TV.”

The Amazon listing makes sense as the TV will go on sale during Amazon’s Great Indian Festival Sale, which will kick off towards the end of September. Amazon has already begun taking registrations of interested consumes and has put the ‘Notify Me’ button on a dedicated OnePlus TV page.

Earlier this year, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the OnePlus TV will be debuted first in India and will launch in September. According to Lau’s interview in Business Insider, the 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. It could leverage artificial intelligence and next-generation 5G connectivity.
