    Hi @SRD. thank you for bringing this question to us, the TV Design Contest is a very productive event that gives us great amount of new ideas and insights in designing new TVs. It was a conceptual design contest base on the theme of "designing your future TV", we are not limiting participants to make the design in a practical way. Some of the ideas will truly come to our next generation OnePlus TVs, we will also highligh that during product announcement;
    OEM, if you mean "Open Ears Meeting", yes, we will definitely have that session to listen to more suggestions and ideas before making next new product.

    Hi @Dhruv Kashyap, thank you for your question, through previous launching of OnePlus TVs, we've got a lot positive feedback and suggestions from our community in India market, among which, a big amount of feedback is asking OnePlus team to bring a 4K product line at a more affordable price range. Base on our search to that idea, we feel its the right time to introduce bigger size of 50/55 and upto 65 inches to our India users. We will also keep monitoring on the market trend in India especially in bigger sizes, and will plan future product accordingly.

    Hi mokaeswar,

    Really appreciate your question.

    We take a lot of pride in the OnePlus Nord CE Blue Void variant, not only for the color, but also for the material and finish. It comes in a fingerprint resistant AG matte finish, quite an expensive technique to use on mid-range devices, but thanks to improvements in manufacturing and production, we’ve been able to bring this to a more accessible device and allow more users to experience better smartphone designs.

    Hi Overzee, Thanks for your question.

    When we design products, We focus on the experience first, and select the necessary components to deliver that end experience. Snapdragon 750G is a powerful chipset that can offer OnePlus's signature fast and smooth experience.

    I like this question.;)

    There are various reasons why flagship phones don’t include the headphone jack, like removing it to save space, but also because the wireless headphone is growing in popularity. We decided to bring it back to the Nord CE to give users more choices, a little more versatility, because we know some users like having the option of using wired earphones.

    Hi @Venky61 ,was expecting your question to come, in the name of OnePlus TV U1S, "S" looks smarter, isnt it? U1S brings a lot new features and Android 10 version system to OnePlus TV, first time to have far field voice control, Delta E<2, Dynaudio, updated Connect App 2.0 with miracast/multicast/remote kids mode/user metrics/timer and OxygenPlay 2.0 with sports zone/live new zone, we wish to bring correct definition of "Smart TV" with valuable features and give people options that they can own the technology upgrades in the future;

    Hi @avinav53 , thank you for asking this! Firstly, you are OK to install any app that is on Android TV Google Playstore.
    And in OnePlus TV, the MEMC feature in Gamma Engine improves sports content watching experience, smoother the judder from low frame rate contents.

    Hi Karthik_sridhar,
    We launched the OnePlus Nord product line last year to make the signature OnePlus experience more accessible than ever. In line with this commitment, we bring Nord CE, a new addition under OnePlus Nord product line to provide more choices for consumers to access the OnePlus experience.

    OnePlus TV U1S Product page listing shows all models have 30W speakers with only the 65inch having 4 sets. The launch event said that only 65 inch is getting 30W speakers. Is there a miscommunication or 50 and 55 inch don't come with 30W?
    Also why skip Dolby Vision support on the 55inch version?

    My question to @Andy Liu. :
    How does the maintenance schedule look like - how long updates will the Nord CE receive updates?
    Why did OnePlus stick to the old maintenance schedule which was released with the OP3? Why did not OnePlus change it? Why doesn’t OnePlus motivate its users to use its devices longer?

    The total sound output is 30W from all TVs, the 65U1S has two extra speaker units - thus total 4 units, unlike the 2 units in 50 and 55U1S.
    The extra 2 units are tweeters as mentioned on the product page.
    Just like Q1 had a total of 50W but Q1 Pro had 8 units, and Q1 had 4 units

    And Dolby Vision is in none of the U1S series TV.

    2 years regular+1 year security
    Was mentioned in launch event:p
    Thanks for the AMA Leo.
    My question is for @Andy Liu. : The Nord CE doesn't appear to have the alert slider. Considering it is named and marketed as a "Core Edition" of the Nord, and an alert slider has been "core" to the OnePlus experience since the beginning of the company, why was it skipped for the "Core Edition" device?
    Thanks.

    Is there a specific reason to skip alert slider out of the Nord CE. I believe that the alert slider feature has been the most acclaimed and super useful feature in the one plus series. Does the OnePlus want to make a move from their flagship features and identity in order to introduce budget friendly feature rich phones such as the Nord series to compete effectively to the likes of offerings from competition like IQOO, Mi and RealMe

    @Todd W. My question for the AMA is -

    1. How much input you have accepted from the TV design contest. How helpful was the community while designing the Oneplus TV U1A?
    Did you refer another OEM before designing the TV?

    Thanks @Leo X. for arranging a quick AMA.
