OnePlus presented, this Thursday, new televisions, the OnePlus TV U1 and Y1. Three models which have especially for interest their particularly attractive price, with a first screen launched at the equivalent of 155 euros.
While Xiaomi has presented a new high-end TV in India, the Xiaomi Mi TV Master, it is an opposite turn that has been taken by OnePlus. After unveiling its first television, the OnePlus TV, in September last year in India, the Chinese manufacturer has announced other more accessible models.
These are actually two ranges of televisions which were presented this Thursday by OnePlus, and three different models: the OnePlus TV U1 and the OnePlus TV Y1, available in two versions. Televisions that are launched on a price range from around 155 euros to less than 600 euros.
OnePlus TV U1 4K HDR TV
The most advanced model presented, the OnePlus TV U1 is a 55-inch TV – the only one offered – displaying a 4K image of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Unlike the brand’s first television, the TV U1 does not have a QLED panel, but only an LCD screen with LED backlight. According to OnePlus, it is however capable of covering 93% of the DCI-P3 color space. The manufacturer also ensures compatibility with the main HDR technologies, Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10 + and HLG.
Regarding the sound experience, the OnePlus TV U1 is equipped with four speakers and Dolby Atmos, Dolby Audio and DTS HD compatibility. We obviously find the Android TV system as well as Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n, Bluetooth 5.0 and Ethernet connectivity. In terms of connectors, the TV benefits from three HDMI sockets, one of which is ARC compatible. It also has two USB sockets, one for USB 2.0 and the other for USB 3.0.
Smaller and cheaper OnePlus TV Y1 TVs
Alongside this OnePlus TV U1, the manufacturer has also lifted the veil on the OnePlus TV Y1, a model available in two screen sizes (32 and 43 inches). In both cases, these are LCD televisions with panels capable of covering 93% of the colors of the DCI-P3 spectrum, but without HDR. There are also two speakers for both formats, as well as version 9.0 of Android TV, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n, Bluetooth 5.0, an Ethernet socket and two HDMI sockets.
Besides the diagonal, the other difference between the two versions lies in the definition of the screen. Indeed, the 43 inch model displays a Full HD definition of 1920 x 1080 pixels, while the 32 inch is limited to a definition of 1366 pixels by 768.
For now, these three TVs will only be available in India.
