Days after the launching the Mi TV 4S with a 55-inch HDR display, Xiaomi has unveiled the Mi TV 4C in China which features a smaller yet significant 50-inch HDR 4K display. The Mi TV 4C will start selling in Xiaomi’s home country for an asking price of 2,199 yuan (approx. Rs 22,700) and will be placed in between 43-inch and 55-inch Mi TV 4C that were launched last year.
This particular variant of Mi TV 4C flaunts a 4K panel that spans over 50-inch with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels and a viewing angle of 178-degree much like the recently launched Mi TV 4S. Powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Amlogic Cortex-A53 processor, the latest Mi TV 4C features 2GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage and a Mali 450 GPU as its graphics unit that allows 50Hz refresh rates and a 9.5ms dynamic response rate.
In line with its latest generation of Smart TVs, the Mi TV 4C runs on an Android-based PatchWall UI that brings carefully curated content sorted according to a user’s preferences thanks to its AI-enabled interface. The UI claims to take advantage of machine learning techniques to learn from an individual’s TV viewing habits over a long period of time.
The included Mi Remote comes as another upgrade as it allows gesture touch controls as well as voice recognition and input. The remote connects via Bluetooth or infrared and will also be able to control regular set-top boxes for seamless navigation through a single handheld unit.
On the connectivity end, the Mi TV 4C has an Ethernet port, three HDMI and two USB ports with support for Bluetooth v4.2 and dual-band (2.4GHz/ 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11ac. The Smart TV supports video formats ranging from 264, H.265, Real, MPEG1/2/4, WMV3, VC-1 all the way to HDR 10. The integrated 8W speakers are powered by DTS and Dolby Audio dual decoding.
The Mi TV 4C will start selling in China as part of the company’s Mi Fan Festival Sale for an asking price of 2,199 yuan (approx. Rs 22,700) and will be placed alongside the Mi TV 4S that launched for 2,999 yuan (approx. Rs 31,100) last week.
