In terms of specifications, OnePlus TV will feature a 55-inch QLED display. There's no word on whether there will be another variant of the OnePlus TV.

OnePlus TV will be available exclusively on Amazon India. Interested users can subscribe to OnePlus TV updates through the 'Notify Me' button on Amazon India.
