After the success in the smartphone space, the Chinese phone brand OnePlus will be trying its luck in the TV segment with its forthcoming OnePlus TV. The company has been working on the OnePlus TV for quite sometime now. We have also seen several leaks and teasers around the upcoming television from OnePlus. Till now, the company has opted for a steady approach as far as the OnePlus TV revealing is concerned. To keep the momentum going, the CEO Pete Lau shared a new image of OnePlus TV remote on Twitter.

Going by the teaser image, the OnePlus TV remote looks quite similar to the one that comes paired with Apple TV. As far as the similarities are concerned, the OnePlus TV carries presumably same size, shape, design and button arrangement. The remote seems to be a cross-version of the Siri Remote, with a silver metal body.

At the top, the remote flaunts slightly raised black surface with rounded corners featuring an entry key in the center. However, there is no official word if the key is d-pad or a touch sensitive surface. The next button features company logo followed by a vertically positioned oval shaped button taking the space of two slots featuring Android controls for going back and home.
The remote also gets Google Assistant button which is colourful and prominently standouts, whereas all other keys or buttons are black in colour with white markings. The other two buttons are Menu key and a blank key, which could be obscured for the teaser. OnePlus TV To Feature 55-inch QLED Display; India Launch, Expected Price, Features & Specifications.
Another interesting design choice is a volume rocker which is positioned on the right side of the remote. This is quite fascinating as we don't usually see such volume buttons on a remote, as it is generally seen on a phone or a tablet. The remote also features USB Type-C charging, which has been confirmed by the co-Founder on the micro blogging site. Expect more details coming out about the OnePlus TV as the launch is likely to happen soon. Stay tuned to LatestLY for more updates on OnePlus TV.
