47-inch Xiaomi TV to cost just $652


Xiaomi’s Android TV is expected next month, and new reports claim the cost of the 47-inch TV could be only 4000 Yuan!

Android smartphones and tablets are not the only cash cows in China, Android smart TV’s are also big business too. Most larger electronics companies such as Hisense and TCL offer Android smart TV’s and the market has become so alluring that video sharing site LeTV is even selling bespoke TV’s.

Xiaomi’s entry in to the living room kicked off earlier in the year with the launch the a 299 Yuan Xiaomi box which can connect to any TV turning it in to an internet connected media hub. The Xiaomi box was just the start though and a 47-inch Xiaomi TV is now in the works with a launch date just around the corner.

According to sources, the TV will cost just 4000 Yuan and are citing the above receipt as proof of this. The receipt says it is for a “closed beta machine” and features the official Xiaomi financial stamp.

Earlier reports, and the official 3C certification which the Xiaomi TV has been approved for, state it will measure 47-inch, have a 1080 display, Dolby Stereo Sound and built-in WIFI.

Will the Xiaomi TV be unveiled with the Xiaomi tablet and Mi3 in September? We certainly hope so.

    We have a Panasonic TX-P46GT30 bought in December 2011. It is a typical smart TV that can connect to internet, has Skype, DLNA media player to connect to sources in the home network. What is so special about the Android ?
    Can it be used as a cell phone too ?!

      Frequent app updates?

      And more apps? XBMC, Plex, Spotify , Netflix etc?

    No cellphone then! Never mind.
    But with so many Android apps to download, it would be fun if this Android TV has, just like Android phones, a touch sensitive screen 😉

    This is only interesting for people who live in China. Who is actually going to import a TV from China (You need to pay TAX and the warranty is going to be difficult).

      Not to mention any softwares benefit from buying this TV (if any) probably would be pretty much nulled if you use it outside china.

    Totally agree with you Jason, it would be very non sensical to buy this TV.

    how is that cheap? 32″ LED I can buy in chinese supermarket from 1300RMB, 39″ from 2100RMB, 42″ around maybe 2800-3000RMB, I don’t really see how is 47″ for 4000RMB particularly good price (for this price is not problem to buy even 50″), smart Tv android capability is matter of 100-200RMB dongle plugged into TV, go here for example for some sales at JD.com
