During their first ever TV launch, OnePlus introduced a new way to communicate to your TV using your mobile phone and called it OnePlus Connect. Basically it allows you to use your OnePlus phone as the TV remote as well as the keyboard to help in navigating across different apps on the TV.
The specs we know so far are very minimal but this article will be updated after the launch event to incorporate al the specs you need to know about the OnePlus TV 40Y1.
OnePlus has very good TVs with amazing specs and at a fair price point but the only problem is they are limited to the Indian Market. It is mostly because they have a huge user base in India and more loyal users that want to get tied into the OnePlus ecosystem but I hope in the coming months we can see their TVs globally. It would be a very good starting point of even making their global community stick around the OnePlus community.
