Affordable OnePlus TV is coming to India on July 2

Wednesday, 10 Jun, 2020

According to the rumors, OnePlus is working on a new handset in the form of the OnePlus Z, the long-awaited successor to the OnePlus X.

OnePlus ventured into the TV space late a year ago with a pair of sets offering some fancy features like a retractable soundbar and an Apple TV-esque remote control. This was backed by notable leakster Max J. as well as sources speaking to PhoneArena. That leads us to believe the upcoming mid-range smartphone will, in fact, be released as the OnePlus Nord.

For those unaware, "Nord" means north in many European languages, and is often associated with luxury products. Now, the company has confirmed that it will be launching an affordable version of its devices soon.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau stated in an interview earlier that the company has a barrage of "affordable" products in the works.

Earlier in this story, OnePlus applied for a trademark in the U.S. for "Nord by OnePlus", and it covers a whole range of products from headphones, e-readers, smart TVs, tablets and - yes - smartphones. The TVs, however, met a lot of criticism for their exorbitant pricing (the more premium model of the OnePlus TV was priced above $1400) for a newcomer in the segment, forcing the company to re-evaluate its pricing strategy for TVs - not just smartphones. It has teased that the starting price of the new TV will be ₹1X, 999.

Other than the OnePlus TV variants, two remote controllers from OnePlus have also been certified by the Bluetooth SIG. The processor will be clubbed with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and possibly there won't be a microSD card slot for additional storage expansion.

Rear camera has 48 Megapixels with Sony IMX689 Sony IMX586 Sensor with f/1.75 along with 2 Megapixels of f/2.4 Macro Lens, 16 Megapixels of f/2.2 Ultra Wide Angle Lens. The phone is also said to have three cameras on the back- a 64-megapixel sensor, a 16-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor.
