Xiaomi announced its first Smart TV with PatchWall UI in India last year and the company did not look back since then. Xiaomi now has a wide range of Smart TVs running Android TV platform and they start at as low as Rs 12,499. Xiaomi is also the leading Television brand in the Smart TV segment which is an interesting aspect to note, considering how it achieved the feat in just over a year.
