The OnePlus TV Will Ship With a Bluetooth Remote Control

By Shabana Arif on at

The OnePlus TV is currently in the works, and a listing for a companion Bluetooth remote has been spotted over on Bluetooth SIG, the standard and licensing group for the technology.

The TV is reported to be launching soon with a possible 2020 release date in India. Of course, we expect it to ship with a remote, but the Bluetooth capability is an unexpected addition that suggests further compatibility with other doodads. Those doodads could be anything from a range of devices like tablet, smartphones, and PCs, but all we know for sure is that the remote utilises Bluetooth 4.2.

Just last year, CEO and founder Pete Lau made a point of saying that connectivity would be a big feature of the TV, so the addition of Bluetooth makes sense in that context.

A western release hasn't been confirmed for the telly, but the company is keen to stress that it will be a worthy rival to its competitors.
