By bringing affordable smart TVs to India OnePlus is clearly targeting the Mi TVs and Realme TVs. Xiaomi Mi TVs are the best selling ones in the country right now.
OnePlus entered the smart TV segment last year with the launch of its two premium TVs aka OnePlus TV Q1 series at much higher pricing than expected. The OnePlus TV Q1 55-inch is priced at RS 69,900 while the OnePlus TV Q1 Pro 55-inch is set a price of Rs 99,900. Both the models are available on Amazon.in.
Besides the affordable OnePlus TV, the company is also planning to launch OnePlus Z — the affordable 5G smartphone. Rumours suggest that the OnePlus Z will launch in India on July 10. The affordable smartphone is expected to feature a 6.55-inch Super AMOLED display with 90hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, 64MP triple rear cameras, 16MP front camera, and 4300mAh battery with 30W fast charging support.
