While nothing is official announcement since then, OnePlus has today unveiled the name of its first TV, and it will be called the ‘OnePlus TV.’ It also revealed the logo of its lineup.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
About OnePlus TV
OnePlus in their online forum stated in a blog about the name and logo of OnePlus TV,
Why “OnePlus TV”
Yes, we are going to call our very first smart TV product “OnePlus TV” – simple yet to-the-point – as we believe there’s no other name that can best represent our value, vision and pride than naming it with our own brand.
We are excited that there will soon be a new kid on the block called “OnePlus TV” that is born out of the “Never Settle” spirit and “burdenless” design philosophy. Honestly, it was harder than you could imagine during the naming process as we have seen so many creative names which made it a difficult decision. Eventually, we chose to be true to our core values, but we are thankful for all the suggestions from you.
Why this logo
With the logo design, we’ve followed the similar concept – as you can tell from the poster below to help us illustrate how we created it. The gap between the “+” and the logo edge is twice as the one between the “+” and the letter “T”, which is also twice as the one between “T” and “V”.
We were inspired by classic geometric progression, which can be seen from so many classic art forms, such the ancient Hindu symbol, the mandala, and the famous ancient Greek temple, Heraion of Argos. And looking closer, you can tell that the we’ve used the same thickness for both logo and the letters to ensure an aesthetics of “symmetry” and “unity”.

OnePlus further mentioned about the final logo,
We’ve seen a couple of options in the industry when it comes to logo design for a new product – either using the same logo as the brand logo or designing a brand-new one. We simply added a “TV” behind our brand logo; however, there’s some thought behind it: We’ve explained the meaning behind “OnePlus” – “One” represents “at the moment” and “Plus” means endless possibilities for the future, and we sort of made a tribute to this concept when we designed this logo – this is our OnePlus way to show the world that it is our first step to explore the endless possibilities in a broader spectrum.
Except this no further information shared by OnePlus. But there are rumors that OnePlus TV will launch four Tv sizes- 43”, 55”, 65” 75”. Rumors are there that the smart TV will run on OxygenOS, supports Bluetooth 5.0 and 4K display. There is no further official information about the launch date and price.
For the official information about the specifications and appearance of the TV, you will have to stay tuned.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
