Xiaomi’s Mi TVs are among the top-selling smartTVs in India. The brand achieved the position within just a few years of entering the country, which is commendable. The Chinese tech company plans to bring more smart TV models but this time it will be under the Redmi branding. In fact, this is the very first time that Chinese tech giant is gearing up to bring the first ever Redmi smart TV in India on March 17. The upcoming Redmi TV has now been teased on e-commerce platform Amazon and also on mi.com. Also Read - Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition chipset revealed, to rely on rocket-tech-based cooling system
Going by the official teaser, the smart TV will sport an XL display. The screen size hasn’t been confirmed yet but rumours suggest it could be the Redmi Max 86-inch, which launched in China recently. If rumours turn out to be true, the price of the Redmi Max 86-inch could be at par with the China pricing. In China, the Redmi Max 86-inch TV is available in a sole black colour option at a price tag of CNY 7,999, which approximately comes around Rs. 91,000.

The teaser also reveals that the upcoming Redmi TV will also not compromise on the audio experience, which is one of the biggest aspects one considers before purchasing a brand new smart TV. In addition, the brand promises to offer a smooth and efficient experience, however, it hasn’t confirmed which chipset it will be powered with.
Made in India smart TV
Similar to all Mi TVs, the upcoming Redmi smart TV will also be manufactured locally in India and that we believe will help the brand level the pricing.
Time and again, the brand has clarified that it encourages the government’s make in India initiative and manufactures almost all products offered to Indian consumers in the country. This helps the brand skip import duties and price its products so aggressively in the country.
