BENGALURU: The first OnePlus TV will be an Android device loaded with Google Assistant, Chromecast built-in and Google Play, the company announced on Saturday.
“Google has been strategic to us in India since the beginning, furthering our efforts towards our goal.
“We believe that with our combined expertise, we can move ever closer to improve the human experience through simplicity, efficiency, and intelligent functionality,” said Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India.
OnePlus’ philosophy of delivering a ‘fast and smooth’ user experience on its smartphone will now extend to its smart TV as well. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already told India Today Tech in an interview that the company has worked with Google to optimise Android TV for the OnePlus TV in a way other TV manufacturers have not been able to. One of the outcomes of this close partnership is the OnePlus TV receiving software updates for at least three years.
“We have always had a very positive relationship with content providers in India, who have always been willing to partner with us, which guarantees great content for our users,” he said recently.
India will be the first market to receive the OnePlus TV, which shows just how important the Indian market is to the brand. The OnePlus TV is expected to launch sometime in September and will go on sale on Amazon India.
Woman, three children die in fire in UP village
Banda, Dec 26 : Three children and their mother were burnt to death in a fire which spread from a bonfire in Dubey Purva Mau village in Banda district of Uttar Pradesh.
Additional Superintendent of Police, Mahendra Pratap Chauhan, said, “Kallu, a resident of Dubey Purva village in Marka police station area in Banda district is a daily wager from Jaipur, Rajasthan. He lived there along with his wife and three children. The sparks emanating from the bonfire lit due to the cold gutted the entire house. Possible other reasons behind the fire are also being probed.”
According to the locals, the villagers raised an alarm when they saw the flames engulfing Kallu’s house. By the time they were able to break open the door, the entire house had turned into rubble. There was only burnt debris and smoke everywhere. On receiving information, the police arrived and the fire brigade too reached the site.
Villagers said the mother and her three children were burnt to death in the fire in the kuccha house which began from a bonfire. The police and the fire brigade personnel put out the fire and removed the bodies from the rubble.
The Sub-Divisional Magistrate said prima facie the cause of the fire appears to be the sparks from the bonfire. But only an investigation can confirm the actual reason.
