Redefining ‘fast and smooth’ with Android TV

    Hi everyone,

    Ever since I announced that our TV is coming soon, everyone has been asking me what operating system OnePlus TV will run. After a long negotiation process and several rounds of comparisons, we decided to use 'Android TV'.

    Throughout this process, I kept asking myself one fundamental question, "how can we offer our users the best TV user experience?" Our goal has always been to provide the best experience for our users, founded on the principles of "burdenless" and "fast and smooth".

    Earlier this year, we released the OnePlus 7 Pro with an advanced 90 Hz display, designed to deliver an unrivalled sense of smoothness. This focus on our 'fast and smooth' philosophy has always been greatly appreciated by our users, which is why we were determined to make sure using the OnePlus TV would be no different.

    Having evaluated all the options available to us, we concluded that the Android TV platform was the only platform that would enable us to provide a Fast & Smooth experience. We made this decision for the following reasons:
    • Based on Android. Android TV is the most powerful TV operating system, and offers a ton of great features like the Play Store and Google Assistant.
    • OnePlus TV is our first step to gradually establish a OnePlus IoT ecosystem. In order to do so, we had to choose an operating system that can interact and seamlessly connect with your Android phone. Android TV is the natural choice.
    • Strong strategic partnership with Google. We are able to work alongside Google to optimize the Android TV user experience and offer our users Android TV updates for at least 3 years.
    As we approach the OnePlus TV's launch, I am starting to get more and more excited about our very first TV. I'm incredibly graceful for what our team, with the help of our community, managed to achieve, and I can't wait to see your reaction when the OnePlus TV finds its way into your living room.

    Never Settle

    I'm sure that it is going to have amazing usability even better than WebOS & great app support & overall UI of Android with Oxygen Skin on the top which will definitely make 1+TV fast & smooth.
    1+TV is going to set new standards in overall TV UI experience along with it's class apart Image Quality & best in class Audio standards.

    Everything seems to be coming together on y'all's end fast and smoothly as well. Can't wait for the release in the US. Thinking it's about time for a TV upgrade for the bedroom.

    Have they fixed the compability with Google Assistant/Home for Android TV? Or do we still need to use a separate ChromeCast to be able to cast our shows via Google Assistant to a TV?

    I am looking forward to seeing it and may be in the market to replace my gigantic 73" DLP tv too!
    I highly suggest the remote have a visible cursor similar to the Nintendo Wii and the LG Magic Remotes.
    That aspect is really very convenient for users.
