Xiaomi entered the television segment in India back in 2018 with the Mi TV range, and now some significant changes are brewing a little over three years later. While the Mi TV range has always been competitively priced, it seems to go against the philosophies and positioning that the company has set for the Mi brand with products such as smartphones and audio accessories. Mi is meant to be a premium brand; Xiaomi's more value-for-money offerings are now represented by Redmi, which was spun off as a separate brand in 2019.
The Redmi Smart TV X55 is priced at Rs. 38,999, and is the latest from Xiaomi in the affordable 4K TV segment. The TV goes up against growing competition in the segment, and introduces the Redmi brand to the affordable space to take over from the Mi TV brand.
There is support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ formats, and an ultra-HD 55-inch screen. The TV runs Android TV 10 with both the stock Android and PatchWall launchers. The TV is decent for the price and has good sound, but there are better performing options for the price.
