New Xiaomi Mi TV 4C features 4K HDR On A Nearly Bezel-free 55 Inch Display

Xiaomi has just increased its range of smart televisions by launching its new Mi TV 4C series. Xiaomi’s new line up is an improved version of the previous Mi TV 4 models, which were launched in March of this year, and the new TV is currently Xioami’s most affordable available model.
The new Xiaomi Mi TV 4C editions come in two sizes with different specs. The 43-inch TV has a Full HD resolution, and boasts 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. On the other hand, the 55-incher is a 4K ultra HD HDR television and is thus compatible with HDR content and even includes the Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) broadcast HDR standard. The larger model also offers 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.
To sweeten the pot further on their specs, the Mi TV 4C series are also equipped with a quad-core Amlogic T962 64-bit processor, just like the Mi TV 4A series, and support Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, Dolby and DTS audio.
These particular models stand out for sporting an almost bezel-less design. Both displays feature the same ultra-thin 9 mm screen, so they can be considered practically a TV without borders. The Mi TV 4C series include a two-point table-mount for easy and proper installation. The Mi Bluetooth Remote control comes with some handy features like Bluetooth, Speech Recognition, Mi Touch, and Infrared. However, annoyingly, this remote will be sold separately according to Xiaomi.
Both televisions also run Xiaomi`s exclusive deep learning AI TV system, which understands user preferences and intelligently classifies content while providing highly personalized recommendations. The Mi TV 4C features a blue light-reducing mode as well, to help reduce eye strain and weariness.
As for their price tags, the 43-inch Xiaomi Mi TV 4C will be sold at around $349 and the 55-inch model at $516. Xiaomi has not provided any information of the availability of these products on the US nor in Europe. The Mi TV 4C will first be available in China on November 11, and early buyers can get both TV versions at a promotional price. We’d definitely like to see the 4K UHD 55 inch model reach the U.S market, if it’s half decent as a budget HDR 4K TV, a price of just over $500 would make for a reasonable deal on this model.
