In our review of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, we said, “The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is quite simply the new king in its segment. It offers the sought-after combination of performance (speed) and brilliant battery life. The display is good, and both the rear and front cameras leave little room for any complaints.”
Mi TV 4 specs
Coming to the TVs we haven’t reviewed the HD-ready and the Full HD variant of the Mi TV. We did however get a chance to review the 4K HDR Mi TV 4. The Mi LED Smart TV 4 features a slim, thin-bezel design and runs on Patchwall OS, which is a fork of Android, however, there is no Google Play Store support. It is powered by a 64-bit Amlogic Quad-core CPU with Mali T830 GPU and it features a 55-inch 4K HDR display with a 10-bit panel and 60Hz refresh rate. For audio, it is equipped with 16W speaker and boasts of Dolby + DTS Cinema quality. Connectivity options include dual-band Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 3-HDMI ports (1 ARC), 1-USB 3.0 port and 1-USB 2.0 port. It offers a smarter set-top box experience with localised content in 15 Indic languages. The Mi TV 4 (55-inch) is priced at Rs 44,999.
In our review of the Mi TV 4 we said, “You get a 10-bit panel that can produce content in 4K and HDR quite well and we think that’s what matters most when you buy a TV. Also, the TV does 4K HDR at 60Hz. If you aren’t happy with the OS, you can always plug in a Chromecast or Fire TV stick or any other box you like. The speakers aren’t the best to enjoy a movie, but then again TV speakers hardly ever are, and you should invest in a soundbar if audio quality is what you are after.”
There are two variants of the Mi LED Smart TV 4A and the two are more or less the same, except the screen size and a couple of features. The new Mi LED Smart TV 4A series comes with 1GB RAM and is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Amlogic processor with 8GB of onboard storage.
