OnePlus says its upcoming TVs will be even thinner than its flagship phones
OnePlus has already let it be known that it will flesh its current line-up of smart TVs out with new mid-range SKUs later in 2020. Now, its CEO, Pete Lau, has released an official community post intended to build enthusiasm for these devices ahead of their launch.
The company has already mentioned that these big-screens will feature MEMC and 93% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Lau has embellished these details with more points on their design and appearance. This includes a note on the new TVs' frame. Apparently, it will not be 4-sided, as with most other similar products out there.
Instead, OnePlus has selected a form-factor in which its top and sides are covered with a single, unbroken piece of aluminium, rather than have 3 sub-panels on each edge joined together. According to Lau, this design also allows for minimal bezels - in fact, the front of the device is made of "matte black glass", which may be more efficient at fading into the background of a room when not in use.
The resulting TVs are, thanks to a Bluetooth certification, known to come in 2 sizes (32 inches and 43 inches), one of which is touted to cost about US$260. They are to launch on July 2, 2020, ahead of its new, mid-tier smartphone of an as-yet uncertain name.
