Want To Suggest A Name For The OnePlus TV?
The One Plus CEO claims that the company wants the whole community to be involved in shaping the OnePlus TV. Following the claim, OnePlus has just launched a new contest. The contest allows members of the OnePlus community to name the upcoming TV.
This is not the first time OnePlus is doing something like this. Even in the past, the company took to its community to suggest the name of ‘OnePlus One’ and ‘OxygenOS’.
The OnePlus TV contest allows the users to suggest the name for the product before October 17. There is no limit to the suggestion of names. That is, each user can suggest as many name as they wish. However, if different users suggest a similar name, the user who suggested the name first will be considered. The company declared that they will choose their top 10 suggestions on October 31. Those favourites will get a pair of OnePlus Bullets Wireless. The company declared that 10 favourites will be chosen from native country China as well. The final winner will get the OnePlus TV and one trip to the OnePlus TV launch event.
The four year old Chinese smartphone manufacturer has come a long way. Initially, they started out as a small start-up that was confined to online market. However, owing to their high-end yet affordable smartphones, they are now giving tough competition to titans like Apple and Samsung. And looking at their progress, it is safe to say that the company still has a long way to go.
