We knew that today Redmi will hold a new product launch conference and unveiled a few models, such as the Redmi 30 Pro smartphone, new speaker, and a TV. But if the first two products didn’t bring any surprises, we still can’t imagine how the company could make a Redmi TV 98-inch. Of course, it is not a cheap product, priced at 19,999 yuan ($2826).
A few days ago, when Redmi announced there will be a ‘larger screen product’, we have guessed the company is going to release a new TV. Before that, the manufacturer had already released the 40-inch and 70-inch smart TVs. So we were thinking the next move will be a 75-inch or 80-inch Redmi TV. But we couldn’t even imagine it will bring the Redmi TV 98-inch.
How big is 98 inches? The official description is 13.6% larger than a single bed of 1.2 meters, flat and the size of a table tennis table. Whether it is watching a movie or playing a game, the visual impact is beyond imagination.
In terms of appearance materials, it comes with the dark black stainless steel frame of the metal drawing process. The width of the four frames remains the same, only 12.8mm, and the screen ratio is as high as 98.8%.
As for the screen quality, it supports 4K resolution, covers 85% NTSC color gamut, and supports 192-partition direct-type dynamic backlight, 140000: 1 dynamic contrast ratio. Also, the TV comes with the ninth-generation image quality engine that supports MEMC motion compensation and more than 20 image quality tuning technologies. MEMC is a motion picture quality enhancement technology in display devices. By inserting motion-compensated frames into the original picture sequence, the motion picture looks clearer and smoother, and the occurrence of smear and stuttering is reduced.
Under the hood, the Redmi TV 98-inch uses a custom 12nm chip (Cortex A55 + Mali G31 MP2) and provides 4GB + 64GB storage capacity. The interfaces include 3 HDMI, 1 AV, 2 USB, 1 network port, 1 S / PDIF, etc. There are 2 x 8W speakers.
Of course, it still uses MIUI custom PatchWall, with Bluetooth voice remote control. So you can wake up Xiao Ai with one click.
Finally, as for the pricing, the Redmi Smart TV MAX 98-inch is priced at 19,999 yuan, which is 1/5 of the average price of similar-sized products on the market. It will be first sold at Xiaomi Mall and Xiaomi Home at 10:00 on April 9.
The company says that 98-inch TVs are immersive beyond imagination whether they are watching movies or playing games. And it’s quite difficult not to agree with this statement.
