It’s no secret that the next product category OnePlus is targeting is smart TV. Now, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has hinted at a possible India launch timeline for the first OnePlus TV.

In a conversation with ET, Lau hinted that Indian consumers will have to wait till about 2020 to get their hands on a OnePlus TV. It’s been reported that the smart TV will be placed in the flagship category, and the company is taking its time as it wants the product to be the “best there is”.

Lau was further quoted as saying that India will be among the first markets to get the OnePlus TV, and it will be available exclusively via Amazon India. This is the not the first time we are hearing about the partnership between OnePlus and Amazon for the OnePlus TV.

In a conversation with India Today Tech, Amit Agarwal, Senior Vice President & Country Manager, Amazon India said, “Of course, the OnePlus TV will be exclusive to Amazon India when it launches.”

He added, “Television is a growing category for us and we have invested heavily in making sure that people who buy TVs from Amazon India get seamless experience. That is why we have even started ‘install on delivery’ service for TVs. We will be able to utilize all of our expertise in delivering TVs to sell the OnePlus TV whenever it launches.”

Not much is known about the upcoming OnePlus TV. But earlier this year, in a forum post, OnePlus said that the smart TV will boast a “premium flagship design” along with premium “image quality and audio experience”.
