Xiaomi will launch a new TV series in India, after introducing its Mi LED TV 4 with 4K HDR in February. The move suggests that the Chinese technology company wants to expand its smart TV portfolio in the Indian market after having done well in the smartphone segment. Rumours and leaks indicate, Xiaomi will launch the Mi LED Smart TV 4C series on March 7 in India. While Xiaomi has not confirmed which TV model it plans to launch next week, the 43-inch Mi LED Smart TV 4C has been listed on the company’s official store in India priced at Rs 27,999.
This is the same TV model, which made its debut in China in October last year. The 43-inch model has been selling in Xiaomi’s home market for Yuan 1849 (or approx Rs 19,000). In India, however, the unannounced Mi LED Smart TV 4C 43-inch model can be seen listed for Rs 27,999 on the company’s online store. Although its list price is Rs 27,999, we can expect Xiaomi to sell the smart TV at an affordable price point. The TV is currently seen as out of stock from the online store and there is a chance Xiaomi could change the price when it is officially launched.
Xaiomi Mi LED Smart TV 4C offers a Full HD (1080p) display, a quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.2 among others. The 43-inch model runs on PatchWall UI, which is based on Android, just like Xiaomi’s other Mi LED TV 4. Earlier this month, Xiaomi launched the Mi LED Smart TV 4 55-inch model in India. The 55-inch model is priced at Rs 39,999 and was sold on Flipkart.com, Xiaomi’s Mi.com website and in its Mi Home offline stores.
The Mi LED Smart TV 4 comes with 4K HDR support for the display and runs the company’s own PatchWall UI, though there is no support for Netflix or Amazon Prime Video yet. Xiaomi has also included a single remote in the TV which can be used to control and browse a majority of digital set-top box. The focus is on regional content with the Xiaomi Mi LED TV.
