Vu launches official Android 7 TV with Google

The smart TV will be available online every Tuesday and Friday, starting March 13 and 16, respectively, across Xiaomi's online store Mi.com and Flipkart. The three models are affordable, offer variety in terms of size and run on what the company claims is a "consumer learning" OS called PatchWall. Xiaomi says the nterface has been tailored for the Indian market.

Also, if you are into super thin TVs, this one won't impress, being marginally thick. It will be interesting to see how this intense battle between Xiaomi and Vu goes on. They had a shaky start when they entered the Indian market, but today they offer some worthy products. Vu ActiVoice lineup of TVs are impressive, however, they fall short of Xiaomi's PatchWall interface, but scores on full-fledged Android support.

For those who don't know, Android TV was launched nearly fours years back by Google as an intuitive OS for large screens. The Xiaomi TV gained a lot of attention because of its aggressive pricing and features.

Vu has now become the third brand. Xiaomi's TV is cheaper than Vu's similar-sized 55-inch offering and tops it off with much better features. Both televisions feature smart features and a 4K UHD panel. Now they aren't very high-end but there's a reason for that, price. While the Mi TV 4A 32 inch TV in being sold at 13999, the 43 inch version of the same is priced at Rs 22999.

We got the 49-inch VU Android 4K UHD TV for the review and one thing is sure, the device certainly gives a premium look.

All three models are identical when it comes to design, features and hardware. The only difference is the screen size.

We didn't get enough time to test different types of music, but what we can say is that you can use it without hooking up external speakers.

All the three televisions come with the option of two controllers- a standard 11-button voice remote and a standard complexed remote.

The VU Smart TV is powered by a quad-core processor along with 16GB of storage with 2.5GB Flash. All three also offer Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity, apart from three HDMI (ARC+CEC) ports, two USB ports (one USB3.0 and one USB2.0), one S/PDIF port, one headphone jack, one AV component port, and one RF input. It is also known as a connected TV or a hybrid TV.

The front facing 10W + 10W watt built-in Sound bar supports DTS TruSurround and Dolby Digital providing a high and immersive sound experience.

"We were one of the first brands in India to launch TVs with Netflix and YouTube buttons on the remote".

The picture quality for a 4K panel is good, but we weren't fully impressed with the quality as the blacks didn't feel deep enough and colours could have been more punchy.
