Xiaomi has announced the launch of Mi TV 4A in 32-inch and 43-inch screen size in India. The company, in contrast to usual big bang launches, decided to go with a soft launch in the form of an online live-stream for these new TV models.
The announcement comes less than a month after the launch of company’s flagship Mi TV 4. With the Mi TV 4, Xiaomi showed its intent to disrupt the market dominated by the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG, and with Mi TV 4A, the company is going after the likes of Micromax and Vu.

The Mi TV 4A 32-inch and 43-inch models are priced at Rs 13,999 and Rs 22,999 respectively, which are far more affordable than similar offerings from other brands. Interestingly, Xiaomi says it will have more units available of Mi TV 4A models when they go on sale for the first time on March 13 via Flipkart and Mi.com.
