- The entire Mi TV 4A range to receive the update as well
- PatchWall 2.0 to include OTT apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime
- Xiaomi says rollout will begin in Q4 2019
At its Smarter Living 2020 launch, the company launched four new Mi TVs running on PatchWall 2.0 based on Android Pie-backed Android TV. Now, the company has announced that Android Pie support is coming to all of its previously-launched Mi TVs as well. This also includes support for Netflix and Amazon Prime. The update will arrive to previously launched Mi TVs that include Mi TV 4A Pro 43-inch, Mi TV 4A Pro 49-inch and Mi TV 4 Pro 55-inch. To recall, the Mi TV 4C Pro 32-inch and Mi TV 4A Pro 32-inch started receiving their Android Pie update late last month.
The newly announced Mi TVs all come with Patchwall 2.0, and the above mentioned previous-gen Mi TVs also look to get support soon. The company hasn’t announced an exact date for the rollout, but it gave a timeline of Q4 2019. This means that the company will rollout Android Pie to the previously launched TVs before the end of this year.
At the Xiaomi event earlier this week, the Beijing-based company claimed that the new Android Pie-based PatchWall version has a Light Theme and a carousel view. There is also Live News integration to deliver real-time news updates on one single screen. The custom skin comes with a list of OTT apps, including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.
