- Xiaomi has launched the Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition in India.
- The Android TV comes in two size variants.
- It features PatchWall 3.0 on top of Android 9 Pie.
Xiaomi has added a new television to its existing Android TV lineup in India. Called the Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition, the new model from Xiaomi tops out with a 43-inch thin-bezel FHD screen and a cheap price tag of Rs 22,999 (~$313). There’s also a 32-inch HD option in the series which comes in at Rs 13,499 (~$184)
Since it’s an Android TV, the new Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition features support for a massive library of apps thanks to the built-in Google Play Store. You also get native support for Google Chromecast, Google Assistant, and Google Data Saver. The Android TV version on the Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition is Android 9 Pie, which is what you’ll get on most Android TVs right now. Google had announced an Android TV version based on Android 10 back in December 2019, but it might be a while before you see that update on your TVs. For reference, the Android 9 update only rolled out to Android TVs at the end of 2019.
