Xiaomi has a plethora of TVs in its portfolio, ranging from affordable, 32-inch television sets to the high-end TVs like the Mi TV 5 Pro 75-inch and the Redmi Smart TV Max 98-inch. But none of those TVs have a Dolby Vision certification for HDR content. Instead, most of these TVs have either HDR10 or HDR10+ certification for HDR playback. And that is about to change soon.
Today, Xiaomi’s general manager for the brand’s TV department has shared a Dolby Vision certification image of a product codenamed L65M5-OD, on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo. It strongly suggests that this is an upcoming TV from the brand and the first Xiaomi TV to feature Dolby Vision certification.
Xiaomi L65M5-OD Will Have 65-inch Screen Size and OLED Panel
The ’65’ number in the L65M5-OD model number suggests that the TV has a 65-inch screen size and the ‘OD,’ according to the reports online, suggests that the TV will have an OLED panel. If this turns out to be true, the L65M5-OD will not only be the first TV from Xiaomi to have a Dolby Vision certification but also the first OLED TV from the brand.
Unfortunately, that is all the information there is regarding this upcoming TV from Xiaomi. The launch date of the TV is yet to be announced. That being said, the launch of the TV seems imminent considering that it has already started bagging certifications. Hopefully, the brand will reveal more details regarding its TV as the launch nears.
Anyway, for those who aren’t familiar with different types of HDR certification, you should know that there are mainly three HDR certifications in the market, HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision. HDR10 certification is the most basic one. This certification doesn’t require a TV to pass stringent tests. Then comes the HDR10+ certification. This certification has higher quality requirements compared to the HDR10 certification. Finally, there is the Dolby Vision certification. It is the most stringent certification of all. It requires a TV to pass strict quality tests, which include, high, peak and sustained brightness levels, color accuracy, and other such parameters.
