It looks like OnPlus is set to refresh the OnePlus TV in its 2020 avatar. According to 9to5Google, “two new OnePlus devices were listed with the Bluetooth SIG, using the same “1+ LED TV” and “1+ Remote Control” names last year. Interestingly, where the Bluetooth listing for the OnePlus TV that launched last year showed 39 different model numbers, today’s listing simply offers one — “55UA0A00.” So, it looks like the TV will have a 55-inch display, which seems to be the premium size of TVs for consumers in India. In the past year, the 43-inch and 55-inch TV sizes have seen growth with the larger than 55-inch screen size seeing slightly less growth. Other information from the listing suggests that the TV will use an updated MediaTek chip but it isn't clear as to which chip this is. It also looks like the remote control will get a redesign.
When OnePlus launched the OnePlus TV in India, one of its weakest elements was the remote control with its unergonomic design and awkwardly placed volume rocker. It looks like OnePlus is working at rectifying this and redesigning the remote control.
When OnePlus launched the OnePlus Q1 and Q1 Pro in 2019, the two TVs came with the same panel, features, and remote control. The only difference in the two was that the Q1 Pro came with the unique spine-like tabletop stand and a sliding out soundbar whereas the Q1 lacked the sliding soundbar (but still had decent speakers) and the tabletop stand had to be purchased separately.
The OnePlus TV that launched last year ran on the Android TV platform and came with a bunch of nifty features that one could access using the smartphone companion app. If you are in the market to pick up a 55-inch 4K TV you can check out our list of best 55-inch 4K TVs here.
