Xiaomi's 50-inch Mi TV 4A offers 4K HDR for just $375

By now, you should be familiar with Xiaomi's obsessive focus on quality and value for money. That's what allowed the brand to swiftly rise up the ranks in China and India, and its latest product epitomizes those qualities. Xiaomi has introduced a 50-inch variant in the Mi TV 4A series (opens in new tab), which offers a 4K panel with HDR and Dolby audio for just $375.

The 50-inch display features an 8ms dynamic response, contrast ratio of 5000:1, 178-degree viewing angle, HDR10, and the new Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) broadcast standard. Under the hood, it's running a 64-bit Amlogic L962 chipset with four 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 cores, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage.

As for connectivity, you get Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.2, three HDMI ports, two USB ports, AV in, Ethernet port, and S/PDIF audio output. You also get Xiaomi's new remote control, which has infrared as well as Bluetooth.

Xiaomi Mi TV 4A

The 50-inch model is the sixth variant in the Mi TV 4A series, following the debut of the 32-inch, 43-inch, 49-inch, 55-inch,and 65-inch models last year. Xiaomi is once again touting PatchWall — an AI-based recommendations engine — as one of the key differentiators. The TV also has speech recognition and voice control, but as the TV is limited to China, it doesn't work with English.

As is the case with the rest of the Mi TV lineup, the 50-inch Mi TV 4A is exclusive to China, and it doesn't look like that will change soon. Xiaomi has expressed interest in bringing its TVs to India, but we're yet to see the manufacturer make any headway on that front.

  • Really curious to see their bottom line numbers during the soon to be IPO. Don't know how they're making any money with all their pricing. I'm not complaining by the way just wondering.
  • You will never see an update.
  • Unless they are promising, I would not expect any.
  • Xiaomi has been promising an update to Android 7.x for the Mi Box since late 2016.
  • I bought TWO phones for which they promised an update since they announced the phone (because it came with an old version of Android at the time). Both phones were never updates. I was bitten twice, so I will stay away of that company. Which is sad, because they hardware is truly good for their prices.
  • How can I get this?
  • Maybe ,Try Gearbest
  • 4 HDMI inputs minimum or GTFO
  • Oh, come on, at this price, add a HDMI hub and keep it moving!!! LOL.
  • I know right
  • Whoa. Ok. Sounds pretty good! Then: only in China, not in English. DOH!
