Since Xiaomi first made a foray into the smart TV market in India February last year, the company has continued to make tremendous progress. In November 2018, the company announced that it had sold over 1 million smart TVs in India, barely nine months after opening shop. Spurred by this success, the company has continued to shun out more smart TV models and now the Chinese tech giant has launched two new versions of its Mi smart TVs in India. The Mi TV 4X Pro 55-inch and Mi TV 4A Pro 43-inches were today unveiled for the Indian market alongside the Mi Soundbar.
The two Mi TV models are upgraded models of the Mi TV 4X 55-inch and Mi TV 4A 43-inch. Xiaomi had launched the Mi TV 4X 55-inch in may last year and now this Pro version. Also, the Mi TV 4A 43-inch version is also getting a Pro version in the Mi TV 4A Pro 43-inch. Both new models are powered by the Amlogic 960X processor and run on Xiaomi’s Patchwall interface as well as Android TV.
