The new Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition series brings two new smart TVs to the Indian market, starting at just ₹13,499 (~$184). The lineup includes a 32-inch HD ready TV, with a resolution of 1368 x 7268p and minimal bezels on all sides, and a 43-inch FHD variant, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p and similarly styled bezels.
The new design helps the TVs achieve a 95% screen-to-body ratio. The smart TVs run Xiaomi’s custom TV OS PatchWall (based on Android TV 9), which offers features like universal search, kids mode, curated lists, and one click play.
With the new Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition, Xiaomi is also bringing a new software feature called Mi Quick Wake to PatchWall, which will allow users to turn their TVs off and back on in under 10 seconds. As with older Mi TVs, PatchWall also gives users access to a boatload of Play Store apps, Chromecast support, Google Assistant support, and a host of content from Xiaomi’s official content partners.
To ensure that the TVs offer the best picture quality in this price range, the Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition series makes use of Xiaomi’s proprietary Vivid Picture Engine technology. The technology consists of hardware and software optimizations to ensure accurate screen calibration, deeper contrast, and enhanced color reproduction.
