Yesterday, OPPO held the 2020 OPPO Developers Conference in China. At the event, the company unveiled a couple of new products such as ColorOS 11 and the OPPO Watch ECG edition. The brand also confirmed that it will be launching its first smart TV dubbed as the OPPO TV in October.
OPPO did not reveal any details on the features of the OPPO TV and its launch date is also under wraps. The company has been teasing the arrival of the OPPO TV since December 2019. Information that has surfaced through certification websites have suggested that the OPPO TV could be arriving in 55-inch and 65-inch sizes.
OPPO Smart TV specifications and features (expected)
Earlier this month, the 55-inch and 65-inch editions of the OPPO TV were spotted on China’s 3C certification platform. The 3C certification also revealed there are as many as 10 variants for each of the two TV models.
The listing revealed that the OPPO TV will be manufacturer by TPV Display Technology (Xiamen) Co. Ltd, which is the parent company of TV divisions of brands like AOC, Phillips, and Envision. In related news, the Bluetooth SIG authority approved two OPPO branded TV remote controls with model numbers RC-001D and BRC-004A.
