OnePlus TV U1S series is tipped to launch in India soon in three screen sizes — 50, 55, and 65 inches. The new series appears to be an upgrade over the OnePlus TV U1 that debuted last year in a single 55-inch size. In addition to the OnePlus TV U1S series, the Chinese company is rumoured to launch an external TV camera with support for Google Duo. The TV camera could help people make video calls directly from their TVs. OnePlus is also speculated to work on a smart TV that would come with a pop-up camera.
Tipster Ishan Agarwal in collaboration with Pricebaba has reported the details about the OnePlus TV U1S series and the company's external TV camera. He indicated that the OnePlus TV U1S series would come with 4K resolution across all three — 50-, 55-, and 65-inch — screen sizes. The smart TV series is also said to have HDR10+, HLG, and MEMC support, along with a 60Hz refresh rate.
OnePlus is tipped to offer 30W speakers with Dolby Audio, co-tuned with Dynaudio, on its new smart TV series. Further, there would be HDMI 2.0 ports for connecting external devices.
The OnePlus TV U1S series is rumoured to run on Android TV 10 out-of-the-box, with support for Google Assistant and Smart Voice Control. OnePlus is also said to provide its OxygenPlay content discovery platform.
Details about the pricing and availability of the OnePlus TV U1S have not been indicated in the leak. The company last year brought the OnePlus TV U1 in 55-inch size at Rs. 49,999. It, however, received a price hike and is currently selling for Rs. 52,999.
Alongside the smart TV, Agarwal says that OnePlus is working on launching its external TV camera with a built-in microphone and Google Duo support. The camera is said to have 1080p resolution.
A patent application shared by LetsGoDigital suggested that OnePlus may have its new smart TV in the works that could include a rotating pop-up camera. This could be similar to how companies including Oppo and Huawei offered pop-up cameras on some of their smart TVs.
