OnePlus is billed to release new mid-range TVs soon. The OEM has released more details on these devices ahead of their July 2020 launch. One of these teasers involves the apparent fact that they will be thinner at their narrowest point than the company's latest premium 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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
