Xiaomi takes on OnePlus with a new affordable 40-inch Android TV
- Xiaomi has launched a new 40-inch Full HD Android TV in India.
- It’s priced at Rs 23,999 and takes on the OnePlus TV 40Y1 which is slightly cheaper.
Xiaomi has added a new, affordable Android TV to its portfolio. The Mi TV 4A 40 Horizon Edition is a direct competitor to the OnePlus TV 40Y1 that was unveiled just a few days back.
The new 40-inch Full HD Xiaomi TV boasts a bezel-less design with a metal frame surrounding the 60Hz display. The firm says it has a 93.7% screen-to-body ratio, the same as OnePlus’ model.
In terms of software, the Mi TV 4A 40 Horizon Edition runs on Android 9 out of the box. Xiaomi also layers its own PatchWall UI on top for personalization so you can either use that or the standard Android TV UI.
