Xiaomi already offers a relatively broad selection of TVs in India, including Redmi-branded models with 4K panels. However, it’s adding two new budget sets to its stable. Today, the company unveiled the new Redmi Smart TV series in India, offering two sets in 32-inch and 43-inch guises.
The 32-inch display packs a 720p resolution, while its larger sibling lands with a denser 1080p panel. Both sets include Xiaomi’s Vivid Picture Engine algorithm for improving color reproduction, more granular controls over picture quality, and hotkeys to jump straight into Netflix or Amazon Prime Video from the Mi remote.
Internally, the Redmi Smart TVs are powered by a quad-core chipset with an Arm Mali-G31 MP2 GPU mated to 1GB of RAM. You also get 8GB of internal storage for Android 11 TV apps. The two sets run Patchwall 4.0 launcher with built-in IMBd rating support and more than 75 free live channels, too.
For audio, the sets’ 20W speakers feature Dolby Audio, DTS HD, and DTS Virtual X support for surround sound simulation.
The budget sets include two HDMI ports with an automatic low-latency mode for gamers, two USB ports, an AV input, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an antenna screw, and an Ethernet port for wired internet. Additionally, the sets do include dual-band Wi-Fi support as well as Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless audio. Miracast and Chromecast smarts also feature.
