TL;DR
  • OnePlus has launched a new 40-inch Android TV in India.
  • The latest model joins the existing 32-inch and 43-inch variants in the OnePlus Y series of televisions.
  • It features a Full HD display, 93% screen-to-body ratio, 20W speakers, built-in Chromecast, and more.

OnePlus’ Y series of affordable televisions has grown by one. The company today launched the OnePlus TV 40Y1 in India. The new TV joins the company’s existing 32-inch and 43-inch sets in the series.

Just like its siblings, the new OnePlus TV 40Y1 runs on the Android TV platform, with Android 9 under the hood. It isn’t the latest software as many larger Android TVs from other brands like Xiaomi have now jumped to Android 10. More premium television sets are also making the transition to Android 11. Still, you’ll get access to the Google Play Store on the OnePlus TV, the ability to sideload apps, and built-in Chromecast capabilities, so you shouldn’t feel much difference in terms of functionality compared to newer versions of the OS.

Meanwhile, the new OnePlus TV 40Y1 offers up the standard Android TV UI along with an option to use OnePlus’ OxygenPlay UI for personalized content recommendations.

You also get a Google Assistant button on the remote of the OnePlus TV 40Y1. This will enable you to use your voice for content search and controlling the TV.

20W stereo speakers manage the sound on the TV with Dolby Atmos enhancement.

For connectivity, you get Bluetooth 5, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, two HDMI ports, two USB ports, an ethernet port, an antenna port, and an optical audio port.

As is the case with all OnePlus TVs, you can use the OnePlus Connect app to control the new OnePlus TV 40Y1. The app allows you to type in search queries using your phone, control the volume of your TV, switch between multiple apps, and more.
