Xiaomi has introduced a new affordable Redmi Smart TV in India, but this one comes with something different. This time, Redmi has collaborated with Amazon and opted for its Fire operating system instead of opting for Android or Google TV and its own Patchwall configuration. For those unaware, Redmi’s Fire TV range already exists in China. See the details below.
Redmi Smart Fire TV: specs and features
The new Redmi Smart Fire TV runs Fire OS 7 and provides access to thousands of apps through the Fire app store, including popular names like Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, Zee5, SonyLiv, YouTube and Amazon Prime video (of course ), among others. It also provides access to live TV and supports Apple AirPlay and Miracast.
It features a metal body and a 32-inch bezel-less display. The display is HD compatible and comes with a 95.72% screen-to-body ratio and Redmi’s image processing algorithm Vivid Picture Engine (VPE). It also gets ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) functionality.
The TV is powered by a 64-bit quad-core processor with Mali G31 MP2 graphics. There is 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. It also supports dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth version 5.0, two HDMI ports (ARC x 1), two USB 2.0 ports, one AV port, one headphone port, and Ethernet support.
And how can we forget the audio? The Redmi Smart Fire TV has 20W speakers, which support Dolby Audio and DTS-HD and DTS: Virtual X Technology. It also comes with a Redmi remote, which has dedicated buttons for popular apps. It’s also voice-activated and supports Alexa (there’s a button for that, too). Speaking of which, users can ask Alexa to check the weather, play music, and control smart home devices.
Price and availability
The Redmi Smart Fire TV is priced at Rs 13,999 and competes with options from Vu, Blaupunkt, etc. It will be available for purchase through Amazon India and mi.com, starting March 21. And as an introductory offer, you can avail a discount of Rs 2,000 and get the TV at Rs 11,999.
