OnePlus teases cheaper Android TV models

OnePlus ventured into the TV space late last year with a pair of sets offering some fancy features like a retractable soundbar and an Apple TV-esque remote control. But their sales didn’t quite pick up in India, mainly due to their high-end pricing, a space where brands like Samsung and LG have maintained a good hold. A recent tweet from the OnePlus CEO indicates that the company has taken note of that, and we could get to see some cheaper OnePlus TVs pretty soon.

OnePlus CEO says that foldable smartphones aren't ready, and it won't make one any time soon

If you've been impatiently waiting for OnePlus to release a folding phone, we finally know why the OEM hasn't taken the plunge yet. At CES last week, Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn from The Verge chatted with OnePlus CEO Pete Lau (and his interpreter, Eric Gass) about the company's Concept One phone, 5G technology, and when consumers should expect a OnePlus foldable device to hit the market (spoiler: not anytime soon).

OnePlus 2 Will Be "Under $450," CEO Says It Has "Never Been About The Price," Which Is Right Apart From Being Completely Wrong

OnePlus is, if nothing else, impressive for the disproportional amount of attention it receives relative to the number of phones it sells. And that's probably in part because OnePlus does ridiculous things like tease out a new phone for literally months on end to build up hype, and also offers things it sometimes cannot deliver on.

However, the primary reason OnePlus has received consistent attention in the last year? The price of its product. At $300, the One offered $600+ flagship-level specifications at a jaw-dropper of a price, and that phone is now down to just $250 if you want to order it today.
