Xiaomi has added another model to its Mi TV 4A series of clever TVs in its own home market, complete with voice control, enhanced sound, and a thin layout. The new Mi TV 4A version sports a 40-inch full-HD (1920×1080 pixel) panel and can be positioned between the 32-inch and 50-inch models of this sequence. The Mi TV 4A series – and the 4C – provide television models with thin bezels and intelligent TV features at affordable prices compared to Xiaomi’s flagship Mi TV 4 array, which has been launched in India just 2 weeks past.
The new Xiaomi Mi TV 4A 40-inch version has direct type backlight, 178-degree, refresh rate of 60Hz, 5000:1 static contrast ratio, and 8ms lively reaction. Connectivity suite of the new TV consists of Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 + LE, USB (2), HDMI (2), AV (1), analogue signal DTMB (1), and Ethernet. It’s two 8W speakers with Dolby and DTS enhancements.
Coming into the key attributes, the new Mi TV 4A 40-inch version supports voice control, so buyers can use the remote with built-in microphone to give commands such as “shut down after 10 minutes,” or “fast forward to 54 minutes and 21 seconds” to control certain functions without pressing one button.
In terms of the specs, the new Mi TV 4A model packs the 64-bit 1.5GHz Amlogic L962-H8X processor and 750MHz Mali 450 GPU with 1GB RAM, and includes 8GB of internal storage. In China, the new model is priced at CNY 1,699 (approximately Rs. 17,500).
A brand new Mi TV 4A model is also expected to launch in India on Wednesday since Xiaomi was teasing the launching of a low-cost TV from the country. However, it’s not clear whether it will be the new 40-inch model that the company brings to the market or the smaller 32-inch variant of the same series. Another version, the 43-inch Mi TV 4C, was also seen last week on the official Xiaomi India site with Rs. 27,999 price tag.
