Price of Mi QLED 4K TV in India
Priced at Rs. 54,999, the Mi QLED TV 4K is the most expensive 55-inch TV currently offered by Xiaomi in India. Only available in a single 55-inch option for now, the Mi QLED TV 4K goes against the QLED TV options from brands like OnePlus and TCL, which are priced similarly around or below Rs. 60,000 marks. At this price, Xiaomi offers similar specs and features for a similar or lower price than options like the OnePlus TV Q1 and TCL 55C715 (review).
The Mi QLED TV 4K will go on sale in India on December 21st, at 12:00 (noon) IST, via Flipkart, Mi.com, Mi Home stores and other retail stores including Vijay Sales.
Mi QLED TV 4K specifications and features
The Mi QLED TV 4K has a 55-inch Ultra-HD QLED screen (3840×2160 pixels), with support for various HDR formats including HLG, HDR10, HDR10 + and Dolby Vision. The TV runs Android TV 10 and is among the first major television launches to run the latest version of Android TV. However, this doesn’t run the Google TV launcher like on the Chromecast with Google TV, instead it runs the stock Android TV launcher.
When it comes to specs, the Mi QLED TV 4K is impressive on paper, with a MediaTek MT9611 quad-core processor powering the interface. There’s also 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage for apps and app data, and 30W of audio output through a six-speaker system consisting of four full-range drivers and two tweeters. The TV has Chromecast built in and also a quick wake function as seen recently on the Mi TV 4A Horizon Edition.
There are three HDMI ports and two USB ports on the Mi QLED 4K TV; with all three early HDMI 2.1s with support for a 60Hz refresh rate with up to 4K resolution and a claimed input lag of 5ms, which will be beneficial for gaming. Bluetooth 5 and HDMI eARC are also supported on Mi QLED TV 4K.
Like other Xiaomi TVs, the Mi QLED TV 4K also runs the company’s PatchWall launcher, with the latest version – PatchWall 3.5 – running on the TV. The remote is the same as on previous Mi TV models, with a few buttons and hotkeys for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, as well as access to the Google Assistant for voice commands.
The Mi QLED TV 4K comes with some key software-based tweaks that seek to enhance the usage experience, including a quick mute option, accessible by pressing the volume down button twice and accessing quick settings as well within the content by long pressing the “Mi” button on the remote control.
