Xiaomi Teases Launch of New Mi TV Series in India, Hints at Smaller, Cheaper Option


Weeks after disrupting the television market with the launch of its Mi TV 4, Xiaomi will expand its Mi TV range in India. Xiaomi Global vice president, Manu Kumar Jain, in a tweet on Thursday triggered the expansion of the Mi TV line in India, which was consolidated in another tweet published by Xiaomi India Product Manager, Sudeep Sahu, who participated in bringing the My TV 4 to the country. . Sahu explicitly disclosed that the company is ready to launch a new series, and said it would be more accessible, implying that it would be smaller and cheaper than the 55-inch Mi TV 4 that arrived last month at a price of Rs. 39,999.

Jain did not disclose any details about the new release of Mi TV in her tweet although she hinted that something is in the pipeline. “My fans! Something new is coming to India! It’s time to change to something smarter, slimmer and smarter.” Soon, he tweeted. However, minutes after the executive tweeted, Sahu confirmed the arrival of the new series and said in his tweet: “Innovation must be accessible to all.” We bring a new series that allows more people #SwitchToSmart TV experience [sic] ”

If we try to decipher the tweets published by Jain and Sahu, it follows that Xiaomi is about to launch a TV range smaller and cheaper than the original Mi TV 4 model. This could be the Mi TV 4A series that was launched in March of last year in three screen sizes, including 65 inches, 55 inches and 49 inches. In July, the company also brought the 32-inch Mi TV 4A model and only in January of this year, which seems to be the launch that Xiaomi hints at. He launched the 50-inch variant in January of this year. The Mi TV 4A range starts at CNY 1,099 (approximately Rs. 11,300), and the top 65-inch variant is available with a price of CNY 5,699 (approximately Rs. 54,000). There are features such as speech recognition based on artificial intelligence, quad-core processors, Wi-Fi connectivity, USB and Ethernet ports and the PatchWall interface based on Android.

In addition to the Mi TV 4A range, there are speculations that Xiaomi could bring the Mi TV 4C series launched in October last year to India. The Mi TV 4C series includes two screen sizes: 43 inches and 55 inches. The 43-inch Mi TV 4C has 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage at a price of CNY 1,849 (around Rs. 19,000), while the 55-inch variant with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage is available. in CNY 2,649 (approximately Rs. 27,200). Both variants have a 64-bit Amlogic T962 quad-core processor and are compatible with Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, Dolby and DTS Audio. There is also HDR 10 and HLG, as well as a blue light reduction mode. In addition, there is support My Bluetooth Remote Control that adds functions of Voice Recognition, My Touch and Infrared at a price of CNY 99 (approximately Rs. 1,000).

The model that Xiaomi will launch in India remains a mystery, but we can expect it to be cheaper and smaller than the My LED TV 4 model that it brought to India last month. It is clear that the Beijing-based company plans to hire companies such as Intex, InFocus, Sanyo and Vu. Affordable options can also make things difficult for Samsung, Sony and LG, since three are capturing a large part of the smart TV market in the country.
