Eshwar Nilakantan, Category Lead, Mi TV team, has confirmed that the Mi QLED TVs sold in the country will be made in India only. Eshwar, in the exclusive interview with Financial Express also said,
We could have launched a QLED TV nine months ago. Taking something that is available in China and launching here is something that we do not want to do because we want to spend that extra bit of time and energy to ensure we are able to do complete justice to the technology, so it works to its full potential
This suggests that the upcoming Mi QLED TV 4K will not be the same as TV 5 Pro Chinese variant. Though, we might see similarities between Mi TV 5 Pro, and Mi QLED TV 4K. The product teaser page for the upcoming launch is already live on mi.com. Xiaomi has also revealed a few features, and specifications of the upcoming Mi QLED TV 4K via launch page. The teaser page confirms that the QLED TV 4K will offer Dolby Vision, Dolby Audio support, along with HDR 10+. The company has additionally confirmed that the upcoming TV will support HDMI 2.1. Mi QLED TV 4K will run Xiaomi’s proprietary TV skin – PatchWall which is built on top of Android TV OS.
Mi QLED TV 4K: Expected Price
We should wait till next week to learn more about the Mi QLED TV 4K, and its pricing in the country. Though, based on Mi TV 5 Pro Chinese pricing we can expect these to debut in India around Rs.45,000 mark. To those unaware, Xiaomi had launched Mi TV 5 Pro series in China almost a year ago.
