Most of the specifications of the OnePlus TV U series are similar to the OnePlus TV Q1 and OnePlus TV Q1 Pro. The U series has 93 percent colour gamut on DCI-P3. This standard is used in most movie theatres around the world.
The OnePlus TV 55U1 has a thickness of 6.9mm near the edges. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 95 percent. The remote provides quick access to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video with the click of a button. Moreover, it can also be used to communicate with Google Assistant.
Pricing vs Competition
This new range of television sets is positioned at an affordable price range, especially the Y series available at INR 12,999 onwards. Recent launches like Realme Smart TV and Vu Cinema TV range are its direct competitors. When it comes to the premium segment, the OnePlus TV U-series is priced at a higher range compared to competition like Vu Premium 4K Android TV and Mi TV 4X range. However, OnePlus hopes to prove its superiority through design, features, and overall performance.
Given the affordable pricing, appealing design, and the promise of enhanced viewing experience – the OnePlus Y series seems to have won buyers’ trust, as customers eagerly await the next round of sales. As per reports, the products might soon be available on the OnePlus online store, as well as offline retail stores.
