The Mi TV 4S is a 55-inch 4K HDR TV with a sub-US$500 price tag
Xiaomi makes some of the best value for money smartphones on the planet but the company, over the past few years, has dipped its claws into the consumer electronics market, with the aim of creating its own exclusive ecosystem. Last year, the Chinese OEM released the Mi TV 4A, a 32-inch smart tv with a price tag equivalent to US$163. The company has come out with another bang for buck offering, only this time with something in a different price bracket.
The new offering, the Mi TV 4S, is something of a refresh of the Mi TV 4 that was released about a year ago. The 4S offers a 55-inch 4K HDR display, an all-metal body, Dolby support, and a 28W speaker setup. The internals of the TV are similarly impressive, with the quad-core Cortex A53 Amlogic T962 SoC (1.5 GHz), Mali-450 MP5 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of storage. The TV features three HDMI ports, two USB ports, and one network port, which is just about standard.
At that price point, you'd be hard-pressed to find something with comparable hardware. Like with most Xiaomi TVs, the 4S sports incredibly slim bezels, which is a welcome bonus. We're not sure what display technology is used on the 4S, but for that price, it's unlikely you get better offers.
The Mi TV 4S will go on sale on April 3.
