OnePlus TV Y1 and U1S Prices in India Hiked By Up To ₹7,000
OnePlus has hiked the price of the OnePlus TV Y1 and the OnePlus TV U1S in India once again. The company has quietly increased the prices of some Y1 and U1S TV models by up to ₹2,500 and up to ₹7,000, respectively. The reason for this price hike is believed to be a combination of the ongoing global chip shortage, an increase in the prices of the open-cell display panels, and an increased import cost. Because of these issues, several companies are increasing the prices of their TVs in the Indian market over the past few weeks.
