The price also remains unchanged, with a starting price of Rs 9,999. And, you can buy this on November 29, 2019.
Xiaomi isn’t stopping there when it comes to giving more choices. Its Mi TV 4 lineup is also getting a new member tomorrow. Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any details about the new Mi TV model but it appears that it could launch an updated version of the entry-level 32-inch Mi TV models, possibly with native support for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, with dedicated buttons on the remote controller. The new model could also ship with Android 9 Pie TV OS along with an updated PatchWall interface.
