The TV launched in China nearly a year ago as the Mi TV 4 but in three sizes – 49”, 55”, and 65”. However, India is getting only the 55” variant and without the sound system.
The Mi LED TV 4 has a number of cool features. First, it’s the thinnest LED TV in the world with a thickness of just 4.9mm. It also has really thin bezels giving it a sort of frameless design. And since it is a smart TV, there are lots of contents for all the members of the family, irrespective of age.
The Mi LED TV 4 also comes with PatchWall, a custom TV OS for the Indian market that integrates your set-top box with the UI of the TV. All the TV stations from the set-top box complete with logos will be shown on the homepage of the TV. So you can switch easily between online TV to content from your box
And with the Mi IR cable, all you need is the Mi TV bluetooth remote to control both the box and the TV. Xiaomi says PatchWall supports all the major set-top boxes in India which are about 48. It also says it collaborated with Indian company, Sensara Technologies for PatchWall.
The TV has a 4K UHD resolution with support for Dolby Audio and dts-HD. For connectivity, the TV has three HDMI ports, two USB ports, an ethernet port, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and dual band WiFi. It also has 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 64-bit Amlogic quad-core processor.
The Mi LED TV 4 will sell for Rs. 39,999 (~$624) and will be available on Mi.com, Flipkart, and Mi home. It will also be available in offline stores later. First sale is on February 22.
For the first three months, buyers will get a 3-month free subscription to Sony LIV and Hungama Play, a free Mi IR cable, and free installation.
