Xiaomi has launched the Mi TV 4X (55) 2020 Edition in India. Compared to the previous Mi TV 4X 55 Pro, the 2020 edition comes with a software upgrade on board. The 55-inch 4K HDR television runs Android TV based on Android 9 and Xiaomi’s latest Patchwall 2.0 UI out of the box.
The Mi TV 4X (55) 2020 Edition still features the same brushed aluminum design. It stands on two feet placed under the two ends of the display. Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed this, but the frame still seems to have a plastic finish just like the previous Mi TV 4X 55 Pro.
Rest of the specs of the new Mi TV 4X (55) 2020 Edition seem to mimic those of its predecessor. You get Google Play Store support as well as access to all major streaming apps like Netflix, Hotstar, and Amazon Prime Video. You also get built-in Chromecast functionality and a Google Data Saver application. The inbuilt Data Saver app is targeted at those who use their mobile hotspot to stream videos on the TV. Xiaomi claims this will help users watch 3X more videos with the same amount of data.
