OnePlus Q1 Pro TV: As Hot As it Appears

Was it a shock for you when you heard about the OnePlus TVs that hit the floors just the last year? Well, it was for me, honestly. After excelling at the smartphone section, OnePlus has finally pulled the strings in the TV segment as well (not in a secret way though) and these smart TVs are surprisingly good.

So here, I thought I should inform you about the new OnePlus Q1 Pro TV which is not only good, it is quite affordable as well. Yes, nobody could have predicted that while it delivers mid-range smartphones, OnePlus would come out with budget segment TVs. And recently, I heard the brand unveiling a smart TV in India which when converted to USD, was just 175 bucks in cost. A mere $175 for a smart TV. Would you believe it?
