OnePlus 7T, OnePlus TV Q1 & Q1 Pro: All You Need to Know

by Dibyajyoti

The new OnePlus 7T is the successor of the OnePlus 7 series, which is less than six months old at the time of writing. In addition to adding to Smartphone, OnePlus has now also made a list of smart TV’s. Well an intelligent step towards growing and acquiring market. While other OnePlus competitor have been already launched their Smart products.

After so many leaks and rumour about one plus 7T , it finally launched. The OnePlus 7T is the simplest high-end smartphone you can buy. Everything about it is accessible and pleasing. Don’t take this simplicity as a codeword for basic, as the OnePlus 7T is anything but basic. It has every feature you need, none of the ones you don’t, and a few interesting additions you didn’t know you wanted. The new OnePlus is the flat not-curved screen has an unusual 20:9 aspect ratio and measure 6.55 inches. This makes the 7T taller than some phones. The body is otherwise familiar territory for OnePlus. Neatly curved sides blend into the back of the phone perfectly. The glass has an anti-glare coating and a special firm underneath the top later to give it a metallic finish, and the helpful slider on the side of the phone lets you change profiles quickly. Whether you like the new camera design or not is completely a personal preference. However, at 190 grams, the OnePlus 7T is lighter in comparison to the OnePlus 7 pro and the extra millimetres it quite slippery, so keep a case on it always. The smoothness of the 90Hz refresh rate and excellent colour profile tuning makes it ideal for watching movies or reading. OnePlus has tried to bring some of that awesomeness to the OnePlus 7T’s display and it sort of works. The optical in-display fingerprint sensor works a tad faster than before and instead of the green glow from the older models, the new sensor shines bright white light at your finger to get the reading. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 plus chipset and this is the fastest chip any android phone manufacturer can use right now. The CPU is clocked at 2.9GHz and can offer 4 per cent better performance than it’s older sibling whereas the GPU gets a 14 per cent boost for graphics performance.

We have new oxygen OS 10 based on Android 10, which again is the best you can get in ‘Androidverse’. As for the audio performance, the dual stereo speakers are loud and clear even in high volumes. Most of the times, you won’t need a headphone while a YouTube or IGTV video with friends.

Now, we have a triple camera system at the back and it’s extremely versatile as the setup on the OnePlus 7 Pro. The main camera retains the 48-megapixel wide-angle Sony IMX586 sensor with an F1.6 lens and OIS assistance. The second unit is now 16-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 17mm lens whereas the third camera is a 12-megapixel telephoto camera offering 2× optical zoom. A dual-tone LED flash is present as usual. When it comes to videos, you can record videos at up to 4K resolution at 60 fps. In 4K, videos come out clear with great colour vibrancy and brightness. However, for better stability, shooting in 1080p at 60 fps is a better option. There’s a super stable mode that only allows shooting in 1080p and it uses both OIS and EIS to ensure the best stability. In regular 1080p mode, all the three cameras are available for videos, but you can only use the main camera in the rest of the modes. Overall, the cameras on the OnePlus 7T offer more versatility than the OnePlus 7 but the performance isn’t as good as the camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro. However, for its price category, these are one of the best phone cameras, if not the best under $600. The battery size is something where the upgrade from the OnePlus 7 seems marginal. There’s now a 3800mAh unit underneath that’s still good enough for an entire day’s battery life under moderate usage. This moderate usage involves incessant testing, close to two hours of web browsing in Chrome, 4 hours of music streaming over Bluetooth headphones, an hour of YouTube sessions and taking calls in between. What doesn’t need to be examined further is the charging. OnePlus’s new Warp Charge 30T system promises 70% charge in 30 minutes, and a full charge in about an hour, and I cannot refute these claims. It took less than 40 minutes to go from 17% to full, after I didn’t charge the phone overnight, meaning it was ready to go after I’d showered and had breakfast. It’s excellent, and everyone will be thankful it’s there in an hour of need. What’s more, you can use any recent (since the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition) OnePlus charger to get these speeds too, not just the one in the 7T’s box.

OnePlus TV launched in India with 55-inch 4K QLED display, Google Assistant support Taking on Samsung, LG and other premium Smart TV makers in India, OnePlus has launched the 55-inch OnePlus TV 55 Q1 and the OnePlus TV 55 Q1 Pro in India. This will be an India exclusive product, to begin with, and will eventually be rolled out to other countries. When OnePlus entered the Indian market in 2014, it was purely focused on becoming a major player in the country with a sharp focus only on smartphones. However, with the Indian market rapidly growing demand for its smartphones in India, OnePlus has embarked on what it calls a new chapter for the company. OnePlus has moved beyond smartphones to enter the television market. This, Pete Lau, founder and CEO of OnePlus says will be the first of many home products to come in the next 5-10 years. The television comes with a sleek minimalist design with a nearly bezel-less screen and a moving soundbar. OnePlus TV comes with a 55-inch 4K QLED display. It sports a very high color range of NTSC 120%, which it claims is the highest in the world. What this means is that images and videos are always rendered in crisp quality and more vibrant colors. The display is also supported by Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support. This ensures that images displayed on the OnePlus TV are constantly optimized on a scene-by-scene and even frame-by-frame basis, rendering more detail and better color accuracy to be displayed across all content displayed. The OnePlus TV 55 Q1 is powered by Android TV and runs on the company’s flagship OxygenOS. Like its smartphones, OnePlus TV also comes with minimal clutter in its operating system. The OnePlus TV is also powered by Google Assistant and can also be controlled through Amazon’s Alexa. This makes the OnePlus TV eligible to take voice commands. OnePlus has created OxygenPlay, which brings all the integrated content, making it easy to search and access. OnePlus TV also comes with the OnePlus Connect app, where a user can operate the TV seamlessly through the smartphone as well. What this means it, with Oxygen Play on your smartphone, you can use your smartphone as a trackpad to scroll through the TV, use it to control volume and even to type on the TV, avoiding navigating letter to letter on the TV keyboard using a remote. The remote on the OnePlus TV is also very minimalistic with just 5 buttons. The remote has a dedicated Google Assistant button for voice commands and one for Prime Video as well.

All New One Plus Smart Remote

The OnePlus TV will be powered by the MediaTek MT5670 processor. This isn’t particularly a well-known chipset but has four cores clocked at 1.5GHz. The tetra-core Mali G51 GPU will take care of the graphics. The TV will have 3GB of RAM and will run a customized version of Android TV 9. The listed resolution is 1920 x 1080 as that’s the maximum resolution Android TV supports for menus. The panel will have a 4K resolution and will be able to playback compatible content in that resolution. 4K display 4K is the buzzword of the moment, and failing to match that resolution would make the OnePlus TV a hard sell. Our guess is OnePlus is angling for a mid-quality 4K television – one that doesn’t try to compete with the big-screen OLED forerunners but doesn’t settle for a low resolution either. That sleek OnePlus design – at a decent price The success of the OnePlus range of smartphones has been in its ability to stay affordable compared to the competition – even if the company has moved more towards high-end devices in recent years. And just as importantly, OnePlus phones look good. The smart TV need to offer a sleek design to stand out and sell itself as a lifestyle item as much as it does as a television. Maybe take a leaf from the smartphone arena with some more imaginative color options. A standout smart TV platform Given that the OnePlus smartphone range runs on Android OS, it’s unsurprising that the OnePlus TV will run on the Android smart TV platform. A Bluetooth SIG listing oddly describes the set as a “unique Android TV”, so we’re expecting to see some out-of-the-ordinary features, possible based around a Bluetooth-enabled remote and smartphone connectivity. Google doesn’t usually allow third-party alterations to its Android OS, so it’ll be interesting to see if OnePlus have been allowed an exception – or what it can include without changing the base software on the television. There are a lot of perks for Android TV, being a widely-used platform and one that comes with Chromecast and therefore a large number of streaming services built-in. But it’s also prone to software bugs, and what we really want to see in a OnePlus TV is a smooth user experience, which is worth more than all the quantum dots in the world.
