Building upon its expertise in software, hardware, design, and product development gained for the past 5 years, it will try to deliver to users the benefits of intelligent connectivity via its first non-smartphone product - an intelligent TV set. It will feature "OnePlus' premium flagship design, image quality and audio experience to more seamlessly connect the home."
