The Mi TV 5 and Mi TV 5 Pro have been launched in China in November 2019. However, in India, this smart TV can be introduced in the next year. Ultra HD screen can be supported in both smart TVs.
Preparations have been started by Xiaomi to launch the new Mi TV 5 Smart TV series in India. It may soon be introduced in the Indian market. Under this series, two smart TVs Mi TV5 and Mi TV5 Pro will be launched. This has been revealed by the company’s new teaser. Also, a media outlet has been sent by Xiaomi, which mentions Quantum Leap Ahead. The term Quantum refers to the Mi TV 5 Pro, which comes with Ultra-HD Quantum Dot LED (QLED) screen support. This smart TV will come in 55 inch, 65 inch, and 75-inch sizes.
Mi TV 5 and Mi TV 5 Pro Price and Specifications
The Mi TV-5 and Mi TV-5 Pro were launched in China in November 2019 and could have been launched in India earlier this year if not for the global pandemic and subsequent lockdowns in the country. The TV series is available in sizes of 55 inches, 65 inches, and 75 inches for both the regular Mi TV 5 as well as the Pro variant. All the TVs have Ultra-HD (3840×2160-pixel) screens. The Mi TV 5 is priced from CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs. 33,800) onwards, while the Mi TV 5 Pro retails at CNY 3,699 (approximately Rs. 41,700) onwards.
If launched in India, the televisions would likely retail at slightly higher prices and could start at Rs. 39,999 and Rs. 49,999 for the Mi TV-5 and Mi TV-5 Pro respectively. The key difference between the Mi TV-5 and Mi TV-5 Pro is that the latter has a QLED screen, compared to the regular LED screen on the former. There is also likely to be HDR support on both TVs, and the models launched in India could run on Android TV with the addition of the PatchWall launcher.
While the Mi TV-5 has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, the Mi TV 5 Pro has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage; this is considerably higher than what’s offered on most premium smart TVs in India. These will be the most premium televisions launched by Xiaomi in India and will be positioned considerably higher than the Mi TV 4X series, which is currently Xiaomi’s most expensive TV series on offer in the country.
