The OnePlus Y series TVs come equipped with panels that boast of a 93 DCI-P3 per cent and an 83 per cent NTSC Colour Gamut. Both the TVs are powered by the company's Gamma processing engine similar to the Gamma engine in more expensive OnePlus Q series TVs -- which improves picture quality by performing real-time image quality optimisations. It also brings features such as Adaptive Contrast, Random Noise Reduction, and Ultra Smooth Motion. With the new Y series, OnePlus has also introduced other features that reduce blur and ghosting. Of the two, the 43-inch variants come with full HD panels, while the 32-inch variant comes equipped with an HD display.
Despite the affordable prices, the sound system in both Y series TVs seems impressive. Both the TVs have a sound system powered by Dolby Audio, with the OnePlus Y Series TVs promising a "cinematic soundstage" to fully immerse the user into their favourite shows. The two also bring a surround sound system that is promised to offer "crisp clarity". The audio on the TVs is handled through two 20W full-range speakers which should be good enough for a medium-sized room.
