Xiaomi, which is mostly known for its excellent budget handsets, has also been expanding its product portfolio of late. In its home market of China, the company sells a wide variety of products ranging from smartphones to air purifiers and umbrellas to beard trimmers. The company has also made a foray into the world of large-screened TVs. The TV lineup from the company was classified under the Mi TV brand and had a wide array of TVs. Anyway, the reason for talking about Xiaomi’s TV lineup is because we have information about the possibility of the company launching a new large-screened TV under its recently separated sub-brand Redmi. While we do not know what this new Redmi TV would be called, what is currently known is that it would have at least one model that has a 70-inch panel. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun officially confirmed the existence of the Redmi TV in a post he made on Chinese social media platform Weibo. The post revealed that Xiaomi plans to launch this TV at a launch event scheduled for August 29. Interestingly, there is also a possibility of Xiaomi officially taking covers off the Redmi Note 8 Series at the same launch event.
Redmi 70 inch TV: What we know so far
As of this writing, we do not have complete details regarding the specifications of the TV. In fact, the only thing we know is that the TV will use a 70-inch panel. Needless to say, this also means that the TV would be a high-end product with support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision. While not confirmed yet, this TV will also boast of 4K resolution. All said it is interesting to note that the 70-inch panel is a rather odd-size for large-screened TVs that usually come in 65-inch or 75-inch versions. In India, Xiaomi currently sells a wide range of TVs with screen sizes that range from 32-inch to 55-inch. The company is yet to make its foray into the larger 60-inch plus category in the country. Also, note that these TVs are sold under the Mi TV brand which seems to be separate from the Redmi branded one that this new product from the company reportedly is. It remains to be seen if Xiaomi extends this change to India as well where the MiTV brand is already quite popular.
