OnePlus TV update that adds Netflix, Input Source setting & other bug fixes seems to have been halted
OnePlus probably has one of the best success stories in the smartphone industry. The Chinese device maker has slowly risen up the pecking order to become an influential player with its amazing OnePlus phones.
But this year, the company is giving its fans something out of the norm – a pair of smart TVs powered by Google’s Android TV. Dubbed OnePlus TV Q1 and OnePlus TV Q1 Pro, these two are still limited to the Indian market, where Xiaomi is also doing great stuff with its Mi TVs.
It will be interesting to see how Samsung deals with both OnePlus TV and Mi TV in the Indian market, especially considering how these two companies have shaken the country’s smartphone market.
One area OnePlus phones are known to excel is regular software updates and it seems OnePlus is set to bring this same energy to its smart TVs. For instance, we expect that Android 10 is in the works given that both the Q1 and Q1 Pro have Android Pie preinstalled.
However, before Android 10 arrives, there should be several OnePlus TV updates with new features, bug fixes and performance improvements to the current system. Matter of fact, one such update was detailed by the company in the OnePlus Forums, but the announcement post has been taken down.
Before it went down, though, someone managed to capture a screenshot of the changes and software version of the update, as seen below.
The OTA update is arriving as version V1.6.0T1911211115 and besides the said Netflix support, there are a bunch of bug fixes it also brings to the OnePlus TV Q1 and Q1 Pro units, as listed below.
– Netflix on board!
– Added setting for directly entering recent “Input Source” at startup
– Optimized volume adjustment experience to increase or decrease audio volume more comfortable
– Pressing volume up and down buttons together to mute the TV
– Remote low battery and charging status notification on TV
– Optimized PQ video pinkish issue
One nifty addition that may go unnoticed is the ability to start the TV in Input Mode. For instance, if you turned off the TV when connected to an HDMI device, the TV connects to this device first the next time you turn it on.
OnePlus had promised to add this feature back in October and it is finally here, at least if the latest OnePlus TV update resumes.
OnePlus has yet to reveal the reason the announcement post for this particular OnePlus TV update was taken down, but given that virtually no one has received the OTA, it’s safe to assume that it has been halted for some reason.
