Netflix has tied up with OnePlus to tease the first look of the second season of its first Indian original series, Sacred Games. The one-of-its association also builds up hype for the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro – OnePlus' first true-blue flagship phone that’s set to launch in India on May 14. Netflix has released two posters and a behind-the-scenes video from the second season of Sacred Games, that have all been shot on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Not only does the first look “demonstrate the OnePlus 7 Pro’s industry leading camera capabilities,” it also teases the phone’s “immersive viewing experience” courtesy its support for the HDR10+ standard. OnePlus has been building quite a lot of hype around the OnePlus 7 Pro, particularly the phone’s fast and smooth ‘breakthrough’ display which is supposedly going to be the best in the industry. Additionally, the OnePlus 7 Pro has been also confirmed to come with three rear cameras. The posters and behind-the-scenes video released by Netflix add to the hype.
“Through incredible devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro, consumers increasingly are able to enjoy an amazing viewing experience on Netflix. We are thrilled to celebrate the epic fandom of Sacred Games with posters and a behind-the-scenes video shot on the OnePlus 7 Pro," Jerome Bigio, who is Director-Partner Marketing, APAC, Netflix said in a press statement.
“OnePlus continues to look for innovative ways to engage and bring unique experiences to our community. We are excited to partner with Netflix and Sacred Games Season 2 to creatively showcase the impressive capabilities of OnePlus 7 Pro. We can’t wait to unveil more about the product and the partnership at the launch event,” said Vikas Agarwal, who is General Manager, OnePlus India.
Netflix entered India in 2016. The global video streaming company is well renowned for its original series - Sacred Games was its first Indian original and it has garnered rave reviews. As such, the second season is duly awaited – Netflix hasn’t revealed a release date yet.
Based on Vikram Chandra's sprawling novel of the same name, Sacred Games is directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, and stars Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Radhika Apte in lead roles.
