The Mi TV Horizon Edition will launch in India today at 12 p.m. (noon). In a recent tweet, Xiaomi Mi TV Product Manager Sudeep Sahu explained how the company has reduced the bezels around Mi TV Horizon Edition. The company had to go back to the drawing board and redesign the front frame to allow for sturdiness while thinning the bezels as much as possible. Mi TV Horizon Edition pricing, along with availability details will be revealed today.

Previous teasers suggest an expansive view and a promise of “quintessential display technology.” A ‘quick wake up’ feature is also teased, suggesting that Xiaomi has finally implemented a way to quickly turn on the TV from standby mode.
