OnePlus has confirmed that the upcoming OnePlus TV will support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. India will be the first market where the OnePlus TV will launch. The TV is speculated to launch on September 26.
The launch of the OnePlus TV is just around the corner and apart from rumours and speculations, we have seen some official information about the upcoming OnePlus TV. The newest addition to the official information is the fact that the OnePlus TV will support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. Dolby Vision is Dolby’s HDR standard and Dolby Atmos is the company’s object-based surround sound. How Dolby Atmos works on the TV is something we will have to see. As for Dolby Vision, it is nice to see the TV support the technology as only flagship TVs have Dolby Vision in India. Samsung TVs don't support Dolby Vision.
Commenting on the association, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India, said, "As we expand into the Smart TV space, this collaboration with Dolby will give our users an unparalleled cinematic experience in the comfort of their homes. We intend to give our community one of the best technologies available in the industry, be it software or hardware. Dolby is a pioneer in the industry when it comes to sound and imaging and we’re confident that this collaboration will set new global benchmarks and pave the way for many more technological innovations."
“Dolby has always been at the forefront of innovation in delivering spectacular entertainment experiences. Our collaboration with OnePlus will enable us to deliver amazing realism with both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos to many more living rooms in India, said Pankaj Kedia, Managing Director, Emerging Markets, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Atmos, in particular, is now well established in India and with our growing work with streaming services, we can now bring more lifelike experiences in both Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision to the Indian consumers through the OnePlus TV.”
In other OnePlus TV news, OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau tweeted an image of the remote control one will use to navigate the OnePlus TV. The remote control looks minimalistic and very reminiscent of the Apple TV remote control. It has a Type-C port at the bottom which means you can recharge the remote and don't need to hunt for batteries at 2AM. It has a volume rocker on the side and the top of the face is dominated by directional buttons with an OK button in the middle. The remote control also has a back, home assistant, OnePlus and a menu button. There is also a mysterious black button which could be intentionally hidden. It could also be a programmable button to launch a user's favourite app.
The OnePlus TV is also confirmed to have 8 speakers - 50W of sound output which is interesting. We have seen a multi-speaker setup in TVs in the past and very few have impressed us.
