Just like the way we consume content has significantly changed over the years, our television sets too have undergone a rapid transformation. It wasn’t that long ago when we had box TV sets, which were not only bulky, but had poor resolution. However, over the last decade, top TV brands such as Samsung and LG have made pioneering work, with constant innovation that has since changed the TV landscape.
From plasma TVs to LCD screens, and now OLED TVs, even a LCD TV 32 inch unit has become sleeker, lighter and smarter. With the entry of Mi TVs in the Indian market, along with other brands such as VU and Micromax, we can now purchase smart TVs at pocket-friendly prices. Smart TVs also enable us to watch our favourite shows and movies from OTT platforms, such as Hotstar, Netflix and Prime Video on our television screens. Furthermore, we can also surf the web on our television screens, and stream YouTube videos without having to get on our laptops or smartphones.
With Android TVs gaining popularity, here are a few TV models which run on Android OS, that you would want to bring home.
