At a recent event in New Delhi, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi showcased Mi TV 4, announcing its foray into TV manufacturing in India. All this is because the company has about 57% shares in the online market segment in the country.

It measures 158.5×75.45×8.05mm and weighs 180 grams.

This device is pre-installed with Android 7.1.1 and is powered by a 3300mAh non-detachable battery. For a long time the Xiaomi fans in India were hoping that the company will bring its TVs to India at an unbeatable price. These are black, lake blue, gold, and rose gold colors.

The Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro would be available in India at a starting price of 156 US dollars (INR 9,999) and 218 USA dollars (INR13,999) respectively. The phone is powered by the latest Snapdragon 636 chip. The phone has a dual rear camera with 20MP and 16MP sensor and on the front, there is a 16MP camera. The 12MP camera has f/2.2 aperture while the 5MP camera has f/2.0 aperture. The camera samples also turned out to be good and the selfies captured in low-light were also fine.
