OnePlus is a well-known premium smartphone brand which has made its place similar to Apple’s in just five years with a huge loyal customer base on which it thrives. Until now, OnePlus was only known for its premium yet affordable smartphones and its line of smartphone accessories but following an update from OnePlus, the Chinese brand is considering producing OnePlus TV and the first of its model will be rolled start as early as next year.

According to Lau, OnePlus is thinking about rolling out a TV that ditches the tantrums of traditional TVs by integrating it with internet at various levels to create a whopping user experience. When asked how OnePlus will do to achieve such a feat, Lau replied that OnePlus TV will be rolled out as early as next year after which, the customers will receive updates for their TVs for five years that will help OnePlus understand the concept well and provide the product that customers desire, a decision that has allowed OnePlus to become a favorite to millions of people in terms of its OnePlus smartphones.

To put into context, OnePlus is looking forward to developing a TV with internet capabilities and a seamless connection between the TV and the smartphone. This would allow the TV to showcase details such as calendar events, suggestions, and even booking a cap to and fro destination.
