After Xiaomi introduced and disrupted the television market with the Mi TV 4 series, the market is picking up pace as India based VU has introduced three new televisions. Having taken an early cue from the competitive prices that Xiaomi has presented, the Android TVs have three variants touching three price points. Xiaomi's TV is cheaper than Vu's similar-sized 55-inch offering and tops it off with much better features. The 43-inch variant costs Rs 36,999, while the 49-inch and 55-inch variants costs Rs 46,999 and Rs 55,999 respectively.

Xiaomi's recently launched three Mi TVs - 55-inch Mi TV 4, Mi TV 4A 32-inch and 43-inch are set to go on sale in India today.

The new Mi TV 4A series will be targeted towards lower segment and is also "more accessible", according to the Chinese company.

Coming to key specifications, both the models of Xiaomi Mi LED TV 4A are powered by 1.5GHz quad-core Amlogic processor along with Mali-450 MP5 GPU. Saraf seems to have underestimated the impact of the Mi TV 4 on the Indian TV market, as the TV seems to be poised to be a veritable disruptor in a largely stagnant market. Both will be available for purchase on Flipkart and Xiaomi's own e-store Mi.com at 12 pm. The 55-inch Vu smart television runs on Android whereas Xiaomi's offering runs on PatchWall; a forked version of Android. This is something Xiaomi's Mi LED TV's lack. The televisions offer over 500,000 hours of content, of which 80 percent will be free content from partners like Hotstar, Voot, Voot Kids, Sony Liv, Hungama Play, Zee5, Sun NXT, ALT Balaji, Viu, TVF, and Flickstree.




Speaking of ActiVoice, it gives the user the ability to search, browse and select content in 88 different languages.

Mi LED TV 4A 32-inch variant comes with HD display and the same custom-tuned set of speakers. The Mi TV 4A models will come with Rs. 2,200 instant cashback with a JioFi connection during its launch.

The budget Mi TV 4A comes with the same 11-button MI Remote shipped with the Mi TV 4.

On March 7, Xiaomi announced the Mi TV 4A in 32-inch and 43-inch screen sizes in India. There is support for all Android TV based apps like YouTube, Netflix, Hotstar and nearly every app that you can get on the Play Store. All three also offer Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity, apart from three HDMI (ARC+CEC) ports, two USB ports (one USB3.0 and one USB2.0), one S/PDIF port, one headphone jack, one AV component port, and one RF input.
