OnePlus announces more affordable U and Y series TVs
(Web Desk) – Close to a year after the launch of its first ever TV launch, OnePlus has unveiled three more televisions. Part of the new U-series and Y-series, these new models join the two Q-series models from last year.
As the name suggests the OnePlus 55U1 is a 55-inch model. It features a 4K LCD panel with 93% DCI-P3 coverage along with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+. Sound is courtesy a 30W audio system with 4 speaker units and support for Dolby Atmos.
On the software side, the TV features Android TV 9 with the assortment of media apps, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, and more. There’s also built-in Chromecast with Miracast and DLNA. The TV also supports Google Assistant and works with Amazon Alexa.
The design features 95% screen to body ratio, 6.9mm thickness at its thinnest point on the back, carbon fiber pattern over the speaker system and a metal body. The stand is now a two-piece metal design that extends to the edges.
Next are the 43Y1 and the 32Y1 models. The 43-inch model has a 1920×1080 resolution LCD panel while the 32-inch model has a 1366×768 resolution LCD panel. OnePlus claims both of them support 93% DCI-P3 color coverage. The two sets also feature 20W speaker system with Dolby Audio, Android TV 9, built-in Netflix and Prime Video apps, and Chromecast.
OnePlus has continued to focus on design for even the budget models, with thin bezels all-around.
All three new televisions support the OnePlus Connect app, which can now be used with multiple devices at the same time, including iPhones, with the same TV. The TVs also feature a new data saver mode, which lets you reduce data consumption and give warning when you exceed your preset limit. A new Kids mode also lets you set restrictions on what can be accessed and also control viewing time.
The OnePlus 55U1 is priced at $668, the 43Y1 is priced at $307 and the 32Y1 is priced at $174. They will be available starting July 5 on Amazon and later through OnePlus retail stores.
