Oppo S1 Smart TV: One More Step into Flagship
It isn’t a surprise anymore that a well-established smartphone brand (at least what most people think) would launch a smart TV in the upcoming future. And it’s not just about the ventures of BBK Electronics. In fact, even brands like Nokia, Motorola, and now even Infinix have smart TVs in the market, and in such a case, while you have a lot of options, it could be utterly confusing as well.
So Oppo is yet again in the market with some new series of TVs which were launched in China in October 2020 and now Oppo is about to launch them all across the world. There is a couple of new series, including Oppo R1 TV series and Oppo S1 TV Series. While the R1 series of TVs are more in the affordable segment, the Oppo S1 TV series is kind of flagship in nature. However, the price is not all that flagship and this is what makes the Oppo S1 series of TVs quite interesting.
Here, let us know this flagship Oppo S1 TV in a bit of detail:
Specifications of Oppo S1 TV:
