OnePlus, a brand that is known for its premium smartphones in India and all over the world is now planning to enter the Smart TV segment soon. In a forum post today, Co-Founder and CEO, Pete Lau said that OnePlus is now planning to enter the smart TV segment. OnePlus, with a vision to build premium flagship products that improve the human experience through simplicity, efficiency, and intelligent functionality, today announced the company is taking its first steps in developing a Smart TV.
OnePlus is planning to address gaps in the television industry, which it tackled in the smartphone market balancing high-quality hardware with the latest in technology, developing a seamless user experience, and crafting hardware that is minimalistic and timeliness in design. Pete Lau will lead the new division alongside the existing smartphone division, which brings in more than 20 years of success in the smartphone and Blu-ray player industries. “I dream about a time when technology is truly seamless, an effortless part of your life without being the focus. As other consumer electronics have evolved and improved our lives, televisions have remained conventional and cumbersome,” said Pete Lau, OnePlus Founder, and CEO. “We bring inherent advantages to the industry, and with this new division, we’re excited to explore the total connected user experience that can enhance everyday life.”, said Pete.
“For most of us, 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. Something that seems as simple as displaying the photos from your mobile phone to a television is still difficult to achieve. With the development of AI technology, our imagination is endless – and we are looking forward to the future.” said Lau.
OnePlus, as a smartphone company is having a lot of loyal users and vast community and they are also looking for name suggestions, if you are interested, you can also chip-in and suggest a name and if the name is shortlisted, you will be getting a Bullet Wireless and more goodies. As with smartphones, OnePlus is constantly listening, welcoming feedback and suggestions for what should be included in its new Smart TV.
