The Indian television market is hot with many budget players providing some good value-for-money televisions. After becoming the No. 1 Smart phone brand in India, Xiaomi is betting on the television segment with the debut of Mi TV 4. The Mi TV 4 is just 4.9mm thin and sports a frameless design. This is a 4K HDR Android TV with 55-inch screen and is powered by a quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 8GB built-in storage. Just to be clear, the TV is Android-based and not powered by Google’s Android TV OS.
In fact, Xiaomi calls it the PatchWall that puts content first and personalises content discovery based on what user is watching. The TV can also control regular set-top boxes with the help of the IR receiver that needs to be placed in the line of sight of the set-top box. As far as streaming partners are concerned, the TV offers up to 500,000 hours of content via Hotstar, Sony Liv, Flickstree, Viu and more. However, there’s no official support for Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Moreover, it supports Dolby and DTS audio and comes with 2 USB ports, 3 HDMI ports, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Mi TV 4 goes on sale from February 22 for a really aggressive price of Rs. 39,999.
