Xiaomi recently launched Mi Box 4K (rebranded Mi Box S) and Mi TV Stick in India. Now, the company schedules an event for September 7 to launch a new smart TV with “Horizon Edition” moniker.
It will be the third product from the company to carry this tag in the country after Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition and Horizon Display on Redmi K20/K20Pro.
The teaser page for this new Mi TV for India does not reveal any of its specs. But since the launch is set to take place two weeks from now, we expect the company to add new details regarding this product to this page in the coming days.
As of now, the said page describes this new TV for the region to offer a “sumptuous feeling” with its “quintessential display tech”. These marketing jargons make us believe that this television could come with a QLED panel instead of LED-backlit LCD panel. Anyway,
this is just a speculation from our end so consider it with a pinch of salt.
The page also confirms it to come with PatchWall launcher, a content aggregation service by Xiaomi and a feature called Quick Wake to instantly power on and off the TV. Further, it also indirectly reveals the TV to run Android TV operating system with words “5000+ apps to try out”.
That means it should also come with Chromecast Built-in.
Talking about the elephant in the room, Xiaomi uses “Horizon” branding for higher screen to body ratio products. So we can expect this upcoming Mi TV to feature thinner bezels than other existing models in India.
