Earlier today, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau tweeted out a crystal clear image of the remote that will be used to control the smart TV.

The remote looks quite slim and appears to be made out of aluminium with a surprising addition of a USB Type-C port at the bottom edge. There’s a directional rocker at the top for navigating through the user interface and a button labelled with the OnePlus logo, a Google Assistant button and an options button on the left and a back and home button on the right. There’s also a blank button which we assume would be customisable.

The OnePlus button is a bit of mystery. Our best guess is that it could be used to pull up a menu that connects to a OnePlus device, possibly letting one access the files inside it.

There’s also a very smartphone-like volume rocker on the right side, which we assume is for the volume control. It seems like a cool idea for volume control when compared to the usual confusing layout on most TV remotes.

OnePlus recently made official its plans to announce a smart TV and it clear that first market to receive it would be India.

The launch is expected to take place in September and OnePlus has reportedly tied up with content providers, many of which have already partnered with the brand.
