We’d like to talk about 4K support the Xiaomi Mi TV 4A comes with, but as not all models support such a resolution and technology, we’ll focus on the features available in all models.
Many don’t like the design this TV set has, because it’s a bit bulky in comparison with other models available in the market. But as the name suggests, the Xiaomi Mi TV 4A has been designed for people with less income, but who also want to own a good TV set. Lei Jun has announced Xiaomi has come with this model to prove high quality TV can be cheap. So let’ not focus on design, because the manufacturer has another product for this purpose. It’s the Mi TV 4, which should cost a few thousand dollars.
The power button is located below the Mi logo. We are talking about this, because it’s the only physical button on the TV. So you should understand remote control is one of the selling points of the Xiaomi Mi TV 4A. But this statement can’t mean anything if not getting deeper in its functionalities.
The remote control of this TV comes with AI-support. The latter provides voice search, which can be very useful. It can search for anything. Say you can search for a certain movie, it will respond quickly. But the Xiaomi Mi TV 4A also supports fuzzy search, which means you can make your search in the following way ‘Show me the Oscar-winning movie of this year.’ You can also use the voice control function to manipulate the TV set. Say you can give command to replay the video starting 10 minute. It will start playing it at 9:55 of the movie.
Another funny feature, you can use the voice control to implement an image search. Say, when you are watching a movie, and want to know some info about the actor, you can ask ‘who is he?’ The TV will search for corresponding info on the actor.
As for connectivity, there are 3 HDMI interfaces, 2 USB 2.0 ports, LAN port, antenna, AV input, S/PDIF interface and so on. Unfortunately, there is no USB3.0 port, but I guess that’s not a big problem for TV owners.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 4A comes with Tencent content, so you have no reason to worry about it at all.
