Like any other piece of modern tech, the main selling points with these TVs would obviously be the specifications. For that the TVs 4K Ultra HD display panels with HDR support, 2GB of memory and up to 32GB of eMMC storage. Additionally, they carry built-in speakers with Dolby + DTs shocking sound effects. All this hardware is then powered by a 64-bit Quad-core processor.
More to that, the TVs house a number of ports including HDMI ports, USB 2.0 ports and one ethernet port. For more connectivity options, the Tvs brag of a dual-band WiFi support and one AV out crack.
The minimum configuration – a 32-inch model – sells at Ksh 31,000. On the other hand, the 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch panels will set you back by Ksh 69,999, Ksh 79,999 and Ksh 219,999, respectively.
With Xiaomi making its name in the world of TVs, we can’t help but be eager for other companies that are beginning to venture. Nokia is obviously the biggest example with 2019’s reveal of its new smart TV. However, no word is out about any Kenyan launch but we remain hopeful.
