Chinese smartphone firm Xiaomi has launched three new products in its home market today, including one 65-inch 4K LED Smart TV and two new Mi Notebooks. The sleek laptops are powered by Intel’s 8th generation Core i3 processor, while the Mi TV 4 carries the PatchWall software that was introduced earlier this year and has already been revised.
The brand had launched three new Smart LED TVs in India in the last week of September, and the pricing, as we had reported, was truly aggressive. Today’s unveiling of the new Mi TV was also reported by Mysmartprice in advance. The new television heralds a new ‘all-in-one’ kind of Smart TV, and Xiaomi has said that the upgrade is exhaustive. Also, the 65-inch Mi TV 4 is bezel-free, and Chinese news websites reported that there isn’t a single screw to be found on the body of this television.
Mi TV 4 65-inch Launched In China For CNY 5,999
The Mi TV 4 65-inch has been unveiled in China for a price tag of CNY 5,999 (INR 63,000 approx), and it will go on sale from November 11. It has no bezels and flaunts an ultra-thin 7.5mm body, with the back made from stainless steel. The television is environment-friendly and can resist heat, corrosion and scratches.
The color of the body has a metallic finish, making it look bright and attractive. Chinese media reported that the Mi TV 4 65-inch sports a 4K fullscreen display with HDR support, which apparently offers a truly immersive viewing experience. There was doubt regarding the smartness of the television, but now that it has been launched, the matter is clear. The new Mi TV 4 65-inch comes with Xiaomi’s PatchWall software, which is an Android based adaptive user interface.
The UI can display all content in one place, assimilating content from different sources such as, Wi-Fi-based web results as well as the stored content. The internal storage is 16GB and there is 2GB of RAM. The TV is powered by Amlogic’s Cortex A53 quad-core processor, which has a CPU clocked at 1.5GHz paired to a Mali-450 GPU. Like other Mi TVs, this one too gets the Bluetooth remote control that can take voice commands and work 360 degrees, so the user need to point the remote to the television for it to work.
Two New Mi Lightweight Notebooks Starting CNY 3,099
The two new Mi Notebooks will also be available for purchase from November 11. The more affordable one, costing CNY 3,099 (INR 32,700) has a 15.6-inch Ultra HD anti-glare display, and is powered by the 8th generation Intel Core i3 processor that has two cores, four threads and a max Turbo frequency of 3.90 GHz. This laptop gets a 4GB RAM with 128GB of storage (SSD), a dual-fan cooling system, and a separate numeric keypad.
The other, smaller laptop costs CNY 3,799 (INR 40,000) and has a 13.3-inch display. It weighs only 1.3 kilograms and measures as little as 14.8mm in thickness. This notebook too is powered by the 8th generation Intel Core i3 processor, but it offers a larger 8GB of RAM with DDR4 (2400MHz) technology. The SSD is the same at 128GB, but it flaunts a fingerprint sensor for secure unlocking. Both these notebooks go on sale on November 11 in China.
