Ahead of the anticipated launch of Xiaomi‘s next set of LED smart TVs in India, the Mi TV 4C model was accidentally listed on the company’s India site. Based on the listing, the upcoming Mi TV 4C (43-inch) will be priced at Rs 27,999, which will make it Rs 12,000 cheaper than the recently launched Mi TV 4.
The listing, spotted by Gadgets360, is no longer visible on the website which now redirects to the Mi TV 4 product page. In its tweets last week, Xiaomi promised to bring more affordable smart LED TVs from its lineup. The company has again teased its ‘SwitchToSmartTV’ series on Twitter. It will be revealing the new series on March 7, and the event will be broadcast live online from 3:00PM.

The Xiaomi Mi TV 4 is the company’s first smart LED TV in India. Priced at Rs 39,999, the 55-inch version of the smart television has been launched in the country. However, in a bid to make switching to a smart TV more affordable for the Indian consumers, Xiaomi is expected to bring the Mi TV 4C and the Mi TV 4A models on March 7.
To recall, both the Mi TV 4C and the Mi TV 4A have been available in China. In addition to the 43-inch Mi TV 4C, the Mi TV 4A model is also likely to make its way to the market this week. The Mi TV 4C is equipped with a full HD display, 1GB RAM, 8GB of storage, a quad-core Amlogic T962 64-bit processor, and comes with support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4/5 GHz dual-band Wi-Fi), Bluetooth 4.2, Dolby, and DTS Audio. It also comes with a blue light-reducing mode which helps reduce strain on the eyes.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 4A (32-inch), on the other hand, is already one of the cheapest and smallest TVs in the company’s portfolio. With prices starting at RMB 1,099 (approximately Rs 11,300), the smart TV will practically be available at the cost of the smartphone, if launched in the same price segment in India. It is expected the company will launch the 40-inch model of the Mi TV 4A. It carries a price of RMB 1,699 in China, which translates to Rs 17,400.
It is equipped with a full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, a 64-bit Amlogic L962-H8X (1.5GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 SoC) with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a 60Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, 2 HDMI ports, one component port, 2 USB ports, 1 Ethernet port, 1 S / PDIF port, Dolby Audio, DTS- HD audio dual decoding, 2x8W speakers, and the AI-based PatchWall UI.
