Xiaomi is said to launch a new Mi TV 4A in the Indian market, and this one will be sold as cheap as Rs 12,999. The television will not be a technology breakthrough, but the price will definitely break the present television market in India.
Xiaomi has a vast portfolio of smart televisions in China. Xiaomi’s Mi TV 4A series that was launched in March last year includes three variants – 49-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch TVs — in addition to the smaller 32-inch model that was launched last July. If the company is targeting the masses as hinted by the #SwitchtoSmart hashtag, the 32-inch Mi TV 4A makes a perfect fit.
The Mi TV 4A 32-inch model is priced at ¥1,099 (roughly Rs 10,500), making it the cheapest smart TV in its portfolio. For an emerging market such as India, such low price point will disrupt the industry making Xiaomi lead from the front.
In terms of features, the Mi TV 4A comes with the same AI-based PatchWall system that powers the 55-inch Mi TV 4, and it also has AI-based speech recognition feature. The television is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 chipset, 1GB RAM, Mali-450 MP3 GPU, 4GB onboard storage, and has multiple connectivity options including Wi-Fi, a USB port, an Ethernet port, two HDMI ports, and an AV port.
But that’s not the only option worth considering. Xiaomi also sells Mi TV 4C series in China, which come in two screen sizes – 43-inch and 55-inch – priced at ¥1,849 (around Rs. 19,000) and ¥2,649 (approximately Rs. 27,200), respectively. These smart TVs have some interesting selling points that could easily win over consumers.
Xiaomi Mi TV 4 comes with a remarkable Mi Remote with simplistic design having just 11 buttons. Guess what PatchWall makes Mi Remote work as STB (Set-Top-Box) controller and also control any HDMI device that supports CEC (Consumer Electronics Control).
Xiaomi had released a new 4K 55-incher smart television in India a week ago. The new television is sold for a staggering price of just Rs 39,999, where other brands are selling their similar goods in price brackets of above Rs 80,000.
The report comes in soon after Xiaomi tweeted out on their social platform announcing something smarter, slimmer and sleeker to be soon announced. The Tweet on March 1 stated a new series of televisions coming soon, and the picture in the tweet is a television.
But the biggest question is which smart TV will Xiaomi launch post the success of Mi TV 4 in India. Are you interested in the Mi TV 4A (32-inch) or Mi TV 4C or MI TV 4A series? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
