  • OnePlus doesn't have a release date or any specs for its upcoming TV, but it does have a name: OnePlus TV. The company announced that it chose the very simple moniker from multiple winners of a contest on its forums. "We believe there's no other name that can best represent our value, vision and pride than naming it with our own brand," said a representative.

    Along with the name, OnePlus revealed an equally basic logo, saying there was more to it than might first meet the eye. "We were inspired by classic geometric progression [and] ...looking closer, you can tell that the we've used the same thickness for both logo and the letters to ensure an aesthetics of 'symmetry' and 'unity,'" the company explained.

              Oneplus devices have never been affordable, What they are is better price to performance devices.

            Just another Chinese TV with built in Android. I watch my TV for it's 4k capabilities or to stream. There's nothing else to it. Any TV can do that. The TV market is oversaturated. I'm a OnePlus fan but TCL and all of these other cheap brands will destroy OnePlus TV in the US. And I'm not saying I wouldn't give them a try, depending on the features I probably will.

                  This wil never happen sadly, just do a few google searches for one plus tablet, as far as I could find there isn't really an attractable market for it anymore.

                    Android was exactly the worse TV system I ever tried... I had a Sony TV and a TCL TV both 4K with android and was more like a crap giant non touch tablet than a TV, half an hour to turn ON, half an hour to turn OFF and the android version on both of them were super crap, play store barely had apps and didnt even support Chrome lol... I downloaded Chrome apk and installed on the TV and still didnt work much good and some websites were bad and not playing like the chrome on my phone\tablet and anyway I already have phones, tablets, don't need another giant god damn android crap...


                    I actually like the simplicity and looks of the LG Web OS, it was the one I really mostly liked, however I ended up returning the TV because the colors were so bad and I keep the same old Samsung 4K TV and it's smart TV is also super simple, but ugly in comparison to LG Web OS... The Sony and the TCL 4K TV's I asked for money back too, didnt like much neither of them, though the TCL was the best for the price and the only one that actually had a true kinda entry level HDR experience, but compared to the even cheaper US model its far worse and that's what got me pissed off because it's like only half as good as the US model and costs more...

                                  kind of makes sense. smart tv's are just smartphones with a large non touch screen.

                                                Surprising that you mentioned Huawei while their direct competitor would be Xiaomi that is in the smart TV game since a long time.

                                                      OLED is trash automatically because of BURN-IN and weak HDR peak brightness. No one should have to babysit their screen.

                                                      There are many big chinese display manufacturers (that are basically unknown in the west).
                                                      They'll probably get their displays from one of those, not from samsung or lg

                                                    That's not hindu symbology. It is a Tibetan mandala, bro.

                                                      This is going to be my final comment. My comment was never about which religion came first. I never said buddhism wasn't inspired/connected from hinduism. So please people get that straight. All I was saying is today, even the photo that was shown in the video is a mandala designed and made for Tibetan religious practice. This happens many occasions in Tibetan buddhism practice. I know and hopefully you guys know too, that practice of Hinduism does not entail making a mandala and destroying them instantly after the ceremony. This has become a purely Buddhist ritual now. That's all, folks.

                                                      In fact the term mandala itself appears first in rigveda.

                                                      The mantra you recites there in your monasteries means same as Sanskrit Mantras..Do some research about it.. There's nothing wrong in accepting the truth.. Hinduism (Sanatan Dharma) is more than 15000 years old as per current archeological evidences..You can't compare it by giving example of some new born religions like Christianity or Islam

                                                      @gaurav kashyap I did not expect such ignorant argument at least. So if someone says it is a Muslim burkha, are you going to say going to say that is christianity too? Because if you dont know there are a lot more common in Islam and christianity. And I explicitly wrote MANDALA. how is that really a hindu thing bro? I was trying to correct some misinformation but then I forgot there are ignorant people like you on the internet who takes every moment to argue without reading and understanding what is written. I dont mean to be rude but bro you gotta take time to read and comprehend first. Then comment. :)

                                                          Oneplus phones are not affordable anymore

                                                            Well "affordable" is very subejctive if you are from western Europe or the US the prices are amazing value i am gussing from your comment that you aren't and in that case you are right beacuse the average wage in India, China ect is lower. However Oneplus is clearly not targeting budget phones anymore and it's clear to see that Oppo (The parent company of Oneplus) has made it clear that they should distance themselves so they don't step on each others toes. So if you want a cheap phone from the same company just buy any phone made by Oppo they should be mostly the same as the old Oneplus phones price wise.
