Last year, OnePlus launched its first 4K QLED Android television series alongside its extremely successful, but expensive, flagship killer, the OnePlus 7T. Almost a year later, the company has launched three new smart TVs as part of its new U-series and Y-series. The TV models launched are 55U1, 43Y1, and 32Y1.
Design and Display
Featuring thin bezels, a better screen to body ratio, and a sleek appearance, the smart TVs follow the same design profile as the OP Q-series launched last year.
The TVs feature 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.
As the names suggest, 55U1, 43Y1, and 32Y1, the TVs are built around 55-inch, 43-inch, and 32-inch LCD panels, respectively. Where the 55-inch model boasts 4K resolution, the 43-inch model features 1080p resolution, and the 32-inch model comes with a 1366×768 resolution LCD panel. All TVs support 93% DCI-P3 color coverage, while the 55-inch model also comes with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+.
The OnePlus 55U1 comes with a 30W audio system with four-speaker and Dolby Atmos support. It runs on Android TV 9 and features a built-in Chromecast with Miracast and DLNA as well as Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
The smaller models, on the other hand, feature a 20W speaker system with Dolby Audio and run on a similar OS. They can all be used with the OnePlus Connect app to connect multiple devices at a time.
All three models are equipped with a new data saver mode that reduces data consumption and gives regular warnings if the preset limit is exceeded.
