Xiaomi is betting high on the Redmi Note 5 Pro with the cameras.

The 55-inch 4K display TV has a frameless design and will come with an integrated Mi TV Bar.

We're expecting the Mi Max 3 will be unveiled alongside the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro that was recently announced in India. Interestingly a source on Twitter pointed out that along with the standard Redmi Note 5 variant; the Chinese OEM will also launch a more premium variant of the Note 5 namely the Redmi Note 5 Pro, which will have a mild spec bump over the conventional device. "We shipped almost 9.6 million Redmi Note 4 handsets in 2017", Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India Managing Director and Global Vice President, told the gathering at the event. The Redmi Note 5 comes with 12 megapixel primary camera and 5 megapixel front camera which is supported by LED selfie flash.

The remote for the Mi LED TV 4 has only 11 buttons and works through Bluetooth, so you don't have to actually point it at the TV. India is also the first global market to get this TV. The Smart TV runs Xiaomi's own AI-powered PatchWall UI which gives personalised recommendations based on your search preferences.

The Xiaomi Mi TV 4 (55) price is said to be around Rs. 39,999.

The deal could be worth up to $150 million with incentives, and also reportedly includes opt-out and no-trade clauses. Yu Darvish joins Jon Lester , Kyle Hendricks , and Jose Quintana on the Cubs starting staff for this upcoming season.

Xiaomi will also be unveiling the Redmi Note 5 Pro at the event. It is the thinnest Redmi Note device ever launched with an 8.05 mm thickness.

The device is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 and might come with different storage variants. The company has priced the 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM version at Rs 13,999 and Rs 16,999 respectively.

The Mi LED TV will go on sale on Mi.com, Mi Home stores and Flipkart starting February 22.

RAM: 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, expandable memory up to 128GB with microSD. It's basically a rebranded version of the Redmi 5 Plus that launched in China late past year.

For selfies, there's a 20-megapixel Sony IMX376 sensor with Beautify 4.0 AI algorithm, and selfie light for low-light conditions. The rear side doesn't have any thick insane power boxes identical to that of other competing devices. 4000mAh battery is onboard while the phone runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat based MIUI 9. On the connectivity front, the device sports Dual SIM, 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, a dedicated micro SD card slot and a micro USB port.
