Mi LED Smart TV 4 138.8 cm (55) [Mi TV 4]: World’s thinnest LED TV
Mi LED Smart TV 4 138.8 cm (55) is the thinnest LED TV in the world, boasting an extremely slim design that measures only 4.9mm, with a frameless display design for a more immersive viewing experience.
Featuring a large, 138.8cm (55 inch) 4K LED display with support for HDR10 content, Mi LED TV 4 provides more detail and richer colours. Along with this, Mi TV 4 also has a dual-speaker set-up boasting Dolby and DTS audio for a truly cinematic experience.
To create the almost-zero gap display of the Mi TV 4, Xiaomi used Corning Iris Glass light guide plate, which is three times more expensive and five times harder than plastic light guide plates usually found in most other TVs.
An amazing display deserves great content, and Mi LED TV 4 is set to revolutionize the viewing experience with its PatchWall system, which redefines what a smart TV OS means. Completely redesigned from the ground up for India, Mi LED TV 4 brings together more than 15 different content partners, across 12 Indic languages, resulting in the most diverse and rich library of video content ever integrated on a smart TV in India — over 500,000 hours of content to watch, across the largest library of Video-On-Demand providers, with over 80 percent free content.
PatchWall is also the first Smart TV OS in the world to intelligently connect to set-top boxes, allowing users to switch to any channel, or specific TV show with just one click.
With all this content available, the universal search makes it easy to find content to watch, along with personalized recommendations that get better the more users watch their Mi LED TV 4. There’s also support for 13 system languages including 12 Indic languages out of the box.
Along with this, Mi Remote is incredibly easy to use, with just 11 buttons which is a stark contrast to traditional remotes full of buttons. Mi Remote can also replace your STB controller and control any HDMI device that supports CEC.
Powering Mi LED TV 4 is an Amlogic 64-bit quad-core processor with a Mali-T830 GPU, which keeps PatchWall quick and fluid. Easily accessible at the back, Mi TV 4 has 3 HDMI ports (including 1 ARC port), and 2 USB ports (3.0+2.0), as well as an Ethernet port along with Dual-Band Wifi, and Bluetooth 4.0 to connect wireless headphones or other Bluetooth devices.
Mi LED Smart TV 4 138.8 cm (55) will be available at a price of Rs 39,999, on 22 February 2018, across Mi.com and Flipkart.
