Chinese consumer electronics giant Xiaomi has announced the imminent launch of its new Xiaomi TV A50 in China, and it appears to be a domestic version of the affordable Redmi TV A50, which is already on sale in Europe and other international markets.


The company said the TV is available to pre-order now, and it is currently listed on JD.com for a low price of just 1,549 RMB, or $218.

The Xiaomi TV A50 is a 50-inch LCD model that offers 4K resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate, supporting 1.07 billion colours. What’s most impressive though is its remarkable screen-to-body ratio of 97.2%, and its wide viewing angles of 178°.

Other features include an automatic display dimming mode that adjusts picture brightness according to the ambient conditions in the living room, and flicker-reduction technology. The TV is powered by a quad-core chip that’s coupled with Cortex A35 cores, and comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. Connectivity options include 2.4-5Ghz dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, two USB Type-A ports, two HDMI 2.1 slots, an Etherent port and a headphone jack.

Xiaomi said the TV will run its MIUI TV operating system that supports voice controls and built-in screen casting capabilities, giving users lots of flexibility in terms of how they operate it and the content they can watch.

The Xiaomi TV A50 appears to be a replica of the Redmi TV A50 and has almost identical specifications, with the biggest difference being its slightly more powerful internal speaker and its support for 5 Ghz Wi-Fi (The Redmi TV A50 only supports 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi).

International consumers can also buy the larger Redmi TV A75, which packs the same specifications into a 75-inch display.
