Xiaomi on Monday has confirmed the launch of a new 4K QLED TV in India. The company announced on Twitter that the new smart TV will be launched in India on December 16. While the company has confirmed the launch date and time of its new QLED TV, it is yet to reveal the name of the product. However, rumors are rife that the upcoming Xiaomi TV could be the Mi TV 5 Pro, which was launched in China in 2019.

Xiaomi has collaborated with Radiant Appliances to foray into the QLED TV market in India. Talking about the upcoming launch, Xiaomi India Category Lead Eashwar Nilakantan told PTI, "We had Dixon as a contract manufacturing partner for our TVs and recently, we signed up with another partner - Radiant Appliances and this will further augment our capacity as we start offering our ''Made in India'' QLED TVs."

"In 2018, we successfully launched smart TVs in India with Mi TV 4 which was the world's thinnest LED TV at 4.9mm. We have completed two years of our TV journey in India. Since Q2 2018, Mi India has remained the number one Smart TV brand in India,'' Nilakantan said. The QLED TV for India has been built ground up here, keeping in mind the needs of customers here. We are hopeful that we will be able to double the market of QLED TVs in the next one year," he added.

While Nilankantan did not reveal the name and price of the Smart TV, he did reveal that the 55-inch QLED TV will be launched in India on December 16. Xiaomi will compete with Samsung, TCL, and OnePlus that currently sell QLED TVs in the Indian market currently.

Xiaomi is yet to confirm the name of the TV but the reports have suggested that the upcoming TV that Xiaomi is hinting at could be the Mi TV 5 Pro, which is already available in China. So here are some of the key specifications of the Mi TV 5 Pro
