Mi TV Early Access program open to apply for 10 models, still no Android Pie for 1st-gen Mi TV 4 (55-inch)
The first time Xiaomi unveiled the Mi TV Early Access Program only a couple of Mi TV models were invited – the Mi TV 4A 32 and 43-inch models. At the time, back in July 2019, the update to Android 9 Pie was at stake.
what about the update for Mi tv first generation 55 inch.
what about MITV 4…. .old 55inch😈😈😈
Owners of the old Mi TV 4 (55-inch) buried deep into the comments under the official announcement post are wondering when they’ll receive the Pie update, especially since they have not been considered for the latest edition of the Mi TV Early Access Program.
As the name suggests, the Mi TV Early Access Program is meant to give owners of select Xiaomi smart TVs a chance to try new features ahead of others. With the initial program taking in only two models, the latest wants 10 more Mi TV models to join.
Looking at the enthusiasm we received last time in the form of 3000+ applications, today, we are extending the Mi TV – Early Access Program to 10 more Mi TV models.
The 10 Mi TV models in question are Mi TV 4C Pro (32), Mi TV 4A Pro (32), Mi TV 4A Pro (43), Mi TV 4A (40), Mi TV 4A Pro (49), Mi TV 4 Pro (55), Mi TV 4X (43), Mi TV 4X (50), Mi TV 4X (55), and Mi TV 4X (65).
Xiaomi will pick 50 active Mi fans for each model, so you need to be quick with your application. Click here to apply now. The application window ends on January 25 at 11:59 PM (IST), with selected Mi fans to be announced on January 27.
Selected Mi fans will receive emails for confirmation, so be sure to provide an active email address. You must also join the telegram group before January 28 or get locked out. You don’t want that because OTA permission will be given only after you join the group.
You can check out more details in the announcement post. But what remains unclear is what software Xiaomi wants owners of these TVs to try this time, especially since Android Pie is already out there. Is it Android 10? Your guess is as good as ours!
