Redmi smart TVs have been launched in India today. The company has launched its first set of Redmi smart TVs in India, the Redmi Smart TV X series. While Xiaomi’s Mi TVs start from budget and go all the way up to the premium range, the Redmi TVs come in large size and also are priced in the mid-range segment. 

The Redmi smart TV X series moniker is similar to the Redmi X series in China, but apart from the name, everything else has changed according to the brand. Xiaomi’s sub-brand, Redmi, entered the wearable space with its smart band last year and also launched multiple audio products and power banks in 2020.

Redmi told in India there are over 170 million TVs in India out of which 100 million are still CRT, 50 million non-smart TVs, and 20 million smart TVs. With an opportunity this big, Redmi wants to make its name in the bigger size smart TV segment and as always, pricing that’s one of the cheapest when compared to other players.
