You can enter your suggested name for OnePlus TV [Here] before October 17. However, it also has a background in producing Blu-ray players, it says here, and now OnePlus Founder, CEO and Supreme Guru Pete Lau has announced its making a play for the biggest prize in AV: a place in the T3 list of best smart TVs. Pete, the co-founder of OnePlus has said that the TV is now in development and will hit the markets soon. Lau also briefly mentioned the idea of using the TV to display photos from your phone, but it's unclear if that's part of the planned feature set.

"We believe your TV has the potential to be so much more than where you watch your favourite shows", Lau said.

OnePlus is best known for its smartphone lineup, of course, as that is primarily what it builds and sells (along with a spattering of related accessories). Currently, the company is taking feedback from its users on what to include in its new portfolio. Android TV seems like a strong possibility.

India's smart TV is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 30.2 percent during 2018-24.

Aiming to bring the level of technology that we're used to seeing in our smartphones to our home TV systems, OnePlus are seeing to take this market very seriously. OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau has announced that the company will make its foray into the TV segment next year with the launch of the OnePlus TV. In an interview with Business Insider, Lau talks about the inclusion of a camera, which is about the only play to hardware that's hinted at - everything else is software experience.

KitGuru Says: I am intrigued to see if OnePlus can bring the same quality designs with the tantalising price point its smartphones manage to carry. The team will also choose 10 favorites from OnePlus China and it will announce the grand-prize victor on December 17.

Looking to extend its product range, OnePlus has revealed that it plans to release a smart TV - called OnePlus TV. "He envisions the TV as having seamless connectivity between your smartphone and TV, as well as the type of AI smarts and assistive functionality offered by devices like Amazon's Echo and Google's Home". This also makes it clear that OnePlus TV is expected later this year or early 2019. What this means for OnePlus in "the workplace, the commute, and being on-the-move" environments remains to be seen.
