OnePlus, the company best known for its smartphones with high specifications and competitive prices, has announced that it will develop a smart tv. The new product will be created by a separate division, which will run in parallel to the division telephone, and will also be directed by the CEO and founder Pete Lau.
In a press release, Lau described the current televisions as “conventional and tedious”, and though it did not give specific details about the plans of the company, spoke of the difficulty with which certain functions are still carried out in a television, such as, for example, show photos of a phone on the big screen.

Phones OnePlus are also updated regularly; every six months it releases a new version, which enables us to offer always the latest technology.
