Unlike Xiaomi, the other brands are also new to the smart TV market, and they launched their first smart TVs last year. The demand for smart TVs has been increasing and many brands have been deviating to try their products in the buzzing market. Smart TVs allow you to not just watch cable or set-top box-based content but a lot more. These devices, running on their own version of the Android operating system are capable of surfing the web.
Further, they can also use apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime and more. Voice support adds the support for Google Assistant integration in most of these TVs. Smart TVs have basically turned the ‘idiot box’ into the complete entertainment center. Oppo TV could offer a good choice to existing competitors in the market. A few weeks back, Xiaomi recently announced that their Smart TV shipment numbers crossed 10 million units in 2019. This broke the record for Chinese TV sales in one year. Xiaomi is also leading the Indian smart TV market.
