“Owing to the immensely positive response to our Q Series, we went on to expand our smart TV category offerings in 2020, with the launch of OnePlus TV U Series and Y Series,” informed Nakra.

Both the TVs were a huge success, with the OnePlus TV Y Series (32-inch) becoming the best-selling smart TV in India in the less than Rs 30,000 price segment in Q4 2021, as per the Counterpoint research report.

Last year, the company launched the OnePlus TV U1S products as an extension to the U Series, and it went on to become the best-selling smart TV in India is greater than Rs 40,000 price bracket in Q4 2021.

In fact, OnePlus grew over an incredible 350 per cent (on-year) from 2020 to 2021 in the India smart TV segment, with the OnePlus TV Y Series serving as a major volume driver as per the Counterpoint Research report, – informed Nakra.

According to him, the all-new OnePlus TV Y1S and Y1S Edge serve as an extension to the existing OnePlus TV Y Series portfolio.

“The OnePlus TV Y1S and Y1S Edge deliver an intelligent and smooth connected ecosystem experience, offering unique smart features like the OnePlus Connect 2.0, seamless IoT connectivity to the other OnePlus devices such as the OnePlus Buds and OnePlus Watch, Smart Manager feature, Gaming mode and much more,” Nakra told IANS.

The ‘Remote Diagnosis’ tool delivers a new way to identify and resolve any service issues remotely reliably.

In case of any potential issue, the OnePlus service team will be able to access the smart TV to configure solutions remotely.

The OnePlus TV Y1S will be available across online platforms starting at Rs 16,499 and the OnePlus TV Y1S Edge will be available across offline channels from Rs 16,999 onwards, respectively.e

“Although both variants largely have very similar features and the exact same software experience, the OnePlus TV Y1S has been designed keeping in mind that the online consumers tend to be more of the value-seeker segment,” Nakra said.

The offline consumers tend to make family purchases with smart TVs mostly.

Considering this aspect, the company included features in the Y1S Edge like slightly higher audio capacity and eTUV Rheinland’ certification, offering vision protection which are slightly enhanced additions in Y1S Edge.

The company has also introduced eNord CE 2′ smartphone that includes a “fast charge, OOS 11, a great camera, a big battery, and 90Hz AMOLED display”.

“We have also brought headphone jack to Nord CE 2 to add a little more versatility.eNord CE 2 also comes up with an extra SD card slot, so users can expand the storage up to 1TB,” said Nakra.

OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G will be available in two storage variants, in India. The 6GB+128GB model is priced at Rs 23,999 and the 8GB+128GB at Rs 24,999.
