If we look at the TV portfolio of Xiaomi, it has 32 inches, 43 inches, 49 inch, 50 inch, 55 inch and 65 inch TV sets under the Mi TV 4A series in China. The latest addition being Mi TV 4A which has a 50-inch screen. It offers a 4K display (3840 x 2160 pixels resolution), 178-degree wide angle view and 5000:1 contrast ratio.
