The OnePlus TV will have a 4K "QLED" panel that's higher quality than regular LCD panels, and one of the screen size options will be 55 inches. It'll also support Dolby Vision HDR.

The OnePlus TV will have a 4K "QLED" panel that's higher quality than regular LCD panels, and one of the screen size options will be 55 inches. It'll also support Dolby Vision HDR.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed to Business Insider in August that the company is using QLED screen panels with a 4K resolution. QLED panels offer better colors and contrast than regular LCD panels.

Amazon India has a product page for the OnePlus TV confirming that it'll come in a 55-inch screen option, and will support Dolby Vision HDR. Combined with the QLED screen, Dolby Vision should make content that supports it really pop.

OnePlus is focusing on delivering in an area that a lot of TV makers neglect: great audio.

The OnePlus TV will feature eight speakers, output 50W of power, and will have "punchy bass," the company claims in an early listing on Amazon India, where the OnePlus TV will first be released.

The OnePlus TV remote appears to have some kind of port on its bottom edge. It looks like a USB-C port, which could suggest that the remote will be rechargeable rather than using single-use batteries.

Lau told Business Insider that the OnePlus TV will have some extra connectivity features with smartphones. One example he gave was using your smartphone's on-screen keyboard to type in your login credentials instead of using the remote.

Some streaming services let you log in to their TV apps via the internet on a smartphone or computer, which makes things a lot easier, but not all of them do. The kind of connectivity that Lau described seems useful and bodes well for other features that the OnePlus TV and smartphones will share.

It'll launch in India first this September, with the US, EU, and China release coming later.
