Xiaomi Mi TV 4-series update detailed

Now, the update for second-generation smart TVs such as Mi TV 4 Pro, 4A Pro, 4C Pro, and 4X Pro will be rolled out as early as next month (September 2019).

The update rollout will happen in batches. In the initial rollout, only a few users will get the update. This will be followed by a wider rollout in the coming months. He further added saying that while other OEMs are working on Android Oreo update, Xiaomi already has made arrangements to push out Android Pie. The 32-inch models of Mi TV 4A Pro and Mi TV 4C Pro will be among the first TVs to receive the update.

Challenges in rolling out Android TV updates

Sahu touched upon the fact that smart TVs initially ran AOSP-based builds, and not Android TV OS. Moving from AOSP to Android TV platform was challenging. So Xiaomi is skipping Android Oreo and is jumping straight to Android Pie. The company has several discussions with Google, chipmaker Amlogic and PCB manufacturer to set up all the infrastructure required for migration from AOSP to Android TV. He further added saying that Project Treble will help make future updates easier.
