Mi TV Horizon Edition launched, features teased
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. In the “Horizon Edition” line, Xiaomi recently launched the Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition which also features a high screen-to-body ratio with slim bezels.
Mi TV Horizon Edition specifications (expected)
According to a recent leak, the Mi TV Horizon Edition will sport a slim frame and an inverted V-shaped stand design. The leak hints that the lower chin will house the Mi logo. The leaked specs include Android TV 9 software, which is based on Patchwall’s user interface. It is also expected to have a 43-inch Full HD LED display, a Cortex-A53 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of on-board storage.
Connectivity options can include three HDMI ports, two USB-A ports, one Ethernet port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The TV should come with Chromecast built-in and support Google Assistant as well as Google Data Saver technology. In addition, the Mi TV Horizon Edition would also have 20W speakers with DTS-HD technology.
