The unique part of the TV will be the pop-up camera which activates while taking video calls through the TV. We're eager to see how that works out whether it is effective. We still don't know a lot about the TVs but it's expected to be called Oppo Smart TV series. The TV will run a customised ColorOS version built over Android TV platform.
Expect the TV to be powered by quad-core processor with as much as 2GB of RAM. With Android on board, you could get built-in Chromecast support, and access to apps through Google Play store. And more importantly, the Oppo Smart TV is expected to support 120Hz refresh rate. Being a premium TV, reports say Oppo has roped in Bang & Olufsen for speakers.
