Xiaomi is all set to launch a new TV in India. If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then the TV that will launch today will be the Mi LED Smart TV 4C. The TV popped up online for a short while with a listed price of Rs 27,999. You can watch the live stream on Xiaomi’s Facebook page here or access the livestream from Mi.com.
For those interested, the Mi TV 4C was launched in China in October 2017. The new Mi LED Smart TV 4C is expected to run on the PatchWall OS, the same OS that’s powering the Mi LED Smart TV 4 that Xiaomi launched in India recently for Rs 39,999. PatchWall OS is based on a forked version of Android. The Mi LED Smart TV 4C will be a 43-inch television with a resolution of 1920x1080p. some speculations suggest that Xiaomi may bring its Mi TV 4A to india as well. Other information suggests that the company will launch a 55-inch variant of the 4C too. But this seems unlikely as the company recently launched the 4K HDR Mi TV 4 in India.
In China, the Mi LED Smart TV 4C 43-inch variant is priced at 1849 yuan which translates to Rs 19,000 approx.
Coming to the specifications of the Mi TV 4C, it has 1GB RAM, 8GB of built-in storage and is powered by a quad-core Amlogic T962 processor. It also supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

In our review, we say that that with the Mi TV 4, “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. We wish the TV had better audio connection options like 3.5mm and RCA. The only qualm with the TV panel is that it is reflective, and the black levels could have been better. If you are finicky about getting the perfect picture output, then you will spend a lot of time calibrating the TV as there isn’t a “one preset fits all” option. But yes, if you are looking to pick up a 4K TV on a budget of 40k, you can’t go wrong with the Mi TV. Good luck fighting for it online during the flash sales though.”
