Xiaomi Mi TV 4A 40 Inch Officially Launched In China
Xiaomi launched yet another smart TV in China. This time the company has launched the Xiaomi Mi TV 4A 40 inch with FHD 1920 x 1080px resolution LCD display. The features and specifications are similar to the 43 inch model. Additionally, the TV also supports voice control.
The voice control is the one feature that differentiates the Mi TV 4A 40 inch from the other Mi TVs. The TV can be controlled using the remote, which has a built-in microphone. It accepts commands like “shut down after five minutes” or “fast-forward the movie by 9 minutes 9 seconds” etc.
Pricing and availability
The Xiaomi Mi TV 4A 40 inch is priced at CNY 1699 (Rs 17,500). Interestingly, the TV will be available in China from next week in a typical Xiaomi “flash sale” mode.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 4C 40 inch has a Full HD 1920 x 1080px LCD display. Under the hood, the TV is powered by Amlogic Quad-core chipset with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. In fact, this is the same chipset that is used in the Xiaomi Mi TV 4, which launched in India for Rs 39,999.
The smart TV has a selective set of ports, including a dual HDMI port, AV ports, analogue signal DTMB, and an ethernet port. Similarly, the TV also supports Bluetooth 4.2 LE and dual-channel Wifi.
The TV is based on Android TV OS with the custom PatchWall User interface. The PatchWall is a unique user interface, which displays curated shows based on the user’s interest. Similarly, the company has partnered with the online streaming service providers to offer free content.
This is a bang for your buck smart TV with a price tag of Rs 17,500. However, there is no confirmation if the voice command feature will trickle down to Xiaomi’s other markets like India. In fact, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi TV 4C or the Mi TV 4A in India with a similar set of specifications on 7th of March. But, whether the voice command feature will make its way to the TV is yet to be seen.
