Xiaomi’s new smart TVs are cheap and feature-rich, but can’t play Netflix


At an event in Bangalore, India today, Chinese gadget giant Xiaomi unveiled three new TVs with Google’s Android TV platform on board – and a shockingly low starting price of Rs. 14,999 ($206).

What’s the catch? The $206 price is for the low-end 32-inch 720p model, the Mi LED TV 4C PRO. You can also get a 49-inch 1080p variant for Rs. 29,999 ($413). The top-of-the-line 4K HDR 55-incher will set you back by Rs. 49,999 ($688). The latter is just 4.9mm thin – the same as its predecessor – while the two smaller models are a fair bit thicker, particularly around the base.
