Xiaomi Mi TV 4A 32-inch Model Launched in Indonesia With Google Play Support and PatchWall UI

By September 6th, 2018 AT 4:53 PM

Xiaomi has launched its entry-level Mi TV 4A 32-inch model in Indonesia a couple of days ago. The television from Xiaomi has been priced aggressively at 1999.000 RP, which roughly comes to $150 or Rs 10,800. This is the same Mi TV 4A 32-inch model which was launched in India earlier this year at Rs 13,999. And it even runs on Xiaomi’s custom interface support- PatchWall UI. However, Xiaomi has added full-fledged Android TV support in Indonesia, meaning the Mi TV 4A 32-inch comes with Google Play support right out of the box. Not only that, the TV even has Chromecast built-in and Google Voice Search as well.

PatchWall UI Gets Google Play Support

One of the biggest cons of the Mi TVs launched in India is the lack of Google Play support. However, Xiaomi is not doing the same for Indonesian users as its first TV- Mi TV 4A 32-inch comes with Google Play out of the box. With the help of Google Play, users can download the apps from the store and start using them. For example, Google Play has Netflix built for Android TV, so the users in Indonesia can download the app and start using the service. However, in India, PatchWall lacks Google Play support, so there’s no support for Netflix yet.

It’s unknown at the moment whether Xiaomi will add Google Play support to PatchWall in India, but for now, users have to rely on third-party methods to get the Amazon Prime Video and Netflix installed. Xiaomi has also added built-in Chromecast support and Google Voice Search to the Mi TV 4A in Indonesia. That being said, the Mi TV 4A in Indonesia is a full-fledged Android TV.

PatchWall is a Content Heavy Platform

Even though the PatchWall is built on top of Android, Xiaomi decided not to include the standard features such as Google Play Services and Google Play. And there’s no way you can sideload them to a Xiaomi Mi TV. Xiaomi decided to ditch Google Play so that it can build a heavy content platform.

In India, PacthWall has over 500,000 hours of video content in both English as well as regional languages. To provide the content, Xiaomi has partnered with services such as Eros Now, Sony LIV, Hotstar, ALT Balaji and so on.

The Mi TV 4A launched in Indonesia and India has a 32-inch HD panel with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Xiaomi even launched a 43-inch model in India, but that variant did not make its way to Indonesia. The Mi TV 4A 32-inch comes with dual 8W stereo speaker setup boasting DTS surround sound. It has an Amlogic 950x quad-core SoC and a Mali-450 GPU under the hood.

Xiaomi has added 1GB DDR RAM and 8GB eMMC storage inside the Mi TV 4A 32-inch. Along with this, the Mi Remote is incredibly easy to use, with just 12 buttons. Connectivity options include three HDMI ports, two USB 2.0 ports and an Ethernet port. Wireless connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, as well as Bluetooth 4.2 to connect to various supported devices.
