Long gone are the days when OnePlus released only one product — the “flagship smartphone killer.” Since then, the company has expanded its product line with headphones, smartwatches, and in India, televisions. It looks like OnePlus really wants to be like the consumer electronics giants — and that’s why it’s launching yet another product category, namely gaming monitors. Like the OnePlus TV, these are also exclusively for the Indian market.
It currently includes two models: the older OnePlus X27 and the more affordable OnePlus E24. The X27 is a 27-inch monitor with an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a screen refresh rate of 165 Hz. AMD FreeSync Premium support and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification are claimed. Video inputs are represented by one HDMI 2.1, one DisplayPort 1.4 and a USB-C port that supports fast charging (65W), so it can now be used to charge OnePlus smartphones.
Note that both in terms of its specifications and appearance, this monitor is suspiciously very similar to Xiaomi Mi 2K Gaming Monitor. The OnePlus X27 will go on sale on December 15 at a price of ~$340.
OnePlus E24 is a budget 24-inch model with a Full HD resolution and a refresh rate of 75 Hz. It has a similar design, only one HDMI 1.4 and USB-C (18 W), and the company has not yet announced a recommended price – it seems that we will have to wait for its appearance on sale.
