The OnePlus TV remote appears to have Android navigation buttons, which makes sense seeing as the TV will run on the Android platform. There’s also a Google Assistant button and a button with the OnePlus logo on it which we aren’t sure about.
But the design is clearly lifted from Apple, a curious choice given the Apple TV remote is quite, well, bad. It makes it more difficult to navigate the UI if anything, so we hope the OnePlus similarities are purely aesthetic.
We can see a USB-C port on the bottom so at least it is rechargeable and the rocker on the side is hopefully a volume rocker, something Amazon took forever to add to its Fire TV remotes.
A remote is a remote is a remote – but this one is pushing it. Let’s hope the OnePlus TV is a killer product.
