Today we have some leaks about the Xiaomi Mi TV 4 Lite! Yes Xiaomi is back again in the leaks and this time it is not the Mi Mix 2S that we are talking about, there seems to be second TV headed towards India!
And, it is not only the Mi phones that are raking high in India, now it’s the flat screen LED TV! It’s been only a couple of weeks since Xiaomi’s Mi TV 4 was first launched in India at a retail price of Rs 39,999 and observed a massive wave of response from large screen smart TV fans located across the breadth of the country. Reportedly, it was sold out in a matter of few minutes.
Following this overwhelming response of Xiaomi Mi TV 4’s first grand sale, Xiaomi decided to re-run another such sale event on February 28, 2018 which once again received a similar response at the same price tag.
For those who are still interested in buying a Mi TV 4 at Rs 39,999 won’t have to wait too long until the next scheduled sale event on March 6, 2018, that’s only 5 days from now, so keep your eyes peaked.

Mi TV 4 Special offers
Launch offers for the xiaomi mi tv includes a free 3-month subscription to Sony Liv, Hungama Play, the Mi IR cable and free on-site installation.
Unfortunately, given that majority of Indian households are not quite equipped to get a 55-inch Mi TV 4 (perhaps a lack of interest or finances or both), a leaked news buzzing around the cyberspace is hinting that there might be a Mi TV 4 Lite version that will most probably hit the Indian markets to cater to those who cannot yet afford the 40K price band.
Speaking of the features, Mi TV 4 Lite will not miss out on any of the startling features that Mi TV 4 rolled out with. From what is already known, it will most definitely have a 1080 pixel panel, which is the norm for most of the other TVs out in the market.
Furthermore, smart TV functionalities are not something that Xiaomi would want to skip out even if Mi TV 4 Lite is offered at an affordable price.
As far as the pricing is concerned, rumors circulating around the internet suggests that it will be around Rs 20,000, which is nearly half of the Mi TV 4 and that should offer a lot of consolation to someone who either cannot afford the hefty price tag or simply don’t want to spend all that much on a TV, given the fact that many TV watchers have not yet upgraded to the flat screens at all.
From what we do know so far, Manu Kumar Jain, the global VP of Xiaomi India tweeted this morning from Bengaluru,
Mi fans! Something new is coming to India!

Xiaomi Mi TV 4 Lite Verdict:
It is only a guess at this point that Xiaomi Mi TV 4 Lite is on the cards and will soon come to fruition to bridge this economic gap so everybody can have the same experience without feeling outcasted. Competitors like LG and Samsung have way more expensive LED TVs for less than 55-inch screen size which makes Mi TV 4 Lite a definite sale. At the price mark of only Rs 20,000 (approx.) it is definitely worth a shot even if you want to have Mi 4 Lite as a spare.
