Xiaomi has introduced a new TV series lineup, called Mi TV 5X, in India. The lineup includes three models: 43-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch, which are likely to turn a few heads owing to their impressive specifications and mouth-watering price tag. While the TVs are yet to go on sale in India, we are presuming that it’ll be the Mi TV 5X 43-inch that is likely to attract more buyers. It’s the most affordable model in the lineup and comes with pretty much the same features as the flagship Mi TV 5X 55-inch model. That said, the Mi TV 43-inch would be facing some fierce competition from some of the popular offerings in the market.
