The Chinese company OnePus, known for low cost, high end flagship killer phones, is for the first time planning to move beyond smartphones to a new product called OnePlus TV.
The official OnePlus twitter account has teased a new flagship product and here’s that tweet. On Sunday the company will reveal that they are going make a flagship TV, which was asked by many of their loyal customers.
Pete Lua, Founder of OnePlus, thinks that “Over the next five years, developments in 5G and Artificial Intelligence will offer an even greater canvas to brainstorm how to improve life as we know it. In continuing our relentless exploration of improving the world around us, we would like to take the first step in building a connected human experience.”
And according to him “there are four major environments we experience each day: the home, the workplace, the commute, and being on-the-move. The home – perhaps the most important environment experience – is just starting to enjoy the benefits of intelligent connectivity.”
“We want to bring the home environment to the next level of intelligent connectivity. To do this, we are building a new product of OnePlus’ premium flagship design, image quality and audio experience to more seamlessly connect the home” said Pete and they are calling it “OnePlus TV”.
This is what Pete said about his feelings for current state of Smart TVs, “At present, we feel the current market of TVs is still feeling quite traditional in their functionality and experience. And they haven’t really well-integrated the internet into the experience, and making the experience match with what would be expected in today’s connected society.”
It could take next year to be released as Pete said “This will have to be a process that proceeds step by step. It wont be something that’s perfect and absolutely complete and revolutionary from the start. So we can’t get everyone’s hopes up too soon.”
