Xiaomi Mi QLED 4K TV launch in India: How to watch livestream
Xiaomi will launch a new QLED TV later today in India. Xiaomi has been teasing the Mi QLED 4K TV revealing small details about the device.
The Mi QLED 4K TV launch event is scheduled to take place at 12 noon today, and it will be live streamed via the company’s YouTube channel. Xiaomi has so far confirmed its Mi QLED 4K TV will come with HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision. The smart TV will be powered by MediaTek’s 64-bit quad-core processor, and it will also have an HDMI 2.1 port. The smart TV will also run on the Android TV-based PatchWall OS. Xiaomi has been teasing the Mi QLED 4K TV with the tagline “Quantum Leaps Ahead” but it’s yet to reveal the key specifications.
There have been reports of the new Mi TV being a rebranded Mi TV 5 or Mi TV 5 Pro currently available in China. Mi TV 5 Pro comes with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, an OLED Quantum Dot screen, and two 8W four-unit speakers. The Mi TV 5 Pro is available at a starting price of CNY 3,699 ( ₹41,600 approx) in China. It comes in 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch models.
Xiaomi, however, told Financial Express that the new Mi TV will not be a product that’s already available in India.
“We could have launched a QLED TV nine months ago. Taking something that is available in China and launching here is something that we do not want to do because we want to spend that extra bit of time and energy to ensure we are able to do complete justice to the technology, so it works to its full potential,” Eshwar Nilakantan, category lead for smart TVs at Xiaomi was quoted by the publication as saying.
Nilakantan also said that the new Mi TV will be made in India. In fact, all upcoming QLED TVs from Xiaomi will be made in the country, and the company plans to expand this in 2021.
