OnePlus TV U1S series price in India (expected)
OnePlus TV U1S series, as per the details tweeted by known tipster Ishan Agarwal, will cost Rs. 39,999 for the 50-inch model, Rs. 48,999 for the 55-inch, and Rs. 64,999 for the 65-inch model. It also seems like OnePlus will be offering the three models at a discounted price for a limited time starting June 10 till September 15. They will likely be discounted by Rs. 2,000, Rs. 3,000, and Rs, 4,000 with HDFC Bank cards taking their sale price down to Rs. 37,999, Rs. 45,999, and Rs. 60,999, respectively.
In terms of design, Agarwal has collaborated with Pricebaba to share renders of the OnePlus TV U1S series and the remote. The TV models seem to have super slim bezels on the top and three sides with a slim bezel at the bottom. There is also an extended module on the bottom with a microphone and what seem to be four small LED indicators. This indicates the OnePlus TV U1S series could come with support for Google Assistant that can be used without the remote, similar to what is present on the new Realme Smart TV 4K 43-inch.
The remote for the TV models comes with NFC support that may allow users to share content between their phones and TVs. There are dedicated keys for Netlflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Google Assistant. It is a compact black remote with a microphone on top.

Lastly, known tipster Yogesh shared renders of a plug-n-play webcam for the OnePlus TV U1S series in collaboration with MySmartPrice. It looks like the webcam will be powered by a USB Type-C port located on the back and comes with a physical shutter for the camera that also covers the mic. The report states this webcam will have 1080p resolution at 30fps and will be priced around Rs. 5,000.
It should be noted that OnePlus has not revealed any details when it comes to pricing, design, or accessories for the OnePlus TV U1S series. All this information will be revealed at launch on June 10.
