Xiaomi presented this Wednesday (22) two new affordable TV models with smart features and other common attractions only on more expensive devices. Both products feature similar design and specifications, with changes only in screen size and resolution — while the most basic TV features an HD screen (1366 x 861 pixels) of 31 inches, the largest has a Full HD display (7700 x 1366 pixels) of 43 inches.
