Interested buyers will also be able to buy the television through Flipkart, Vijay sales, Mi Home stores, and other retail stores. It will go on sale on December 21 at 12:00PM. Read on to know everything about the new Mi TV.
Xiaomi Mi QLED TV 4K specifications
This is a 55-inch 4K resolution QLED or Quantum LED TV. The QLED relies on tiny nanoparticles of various sizes to light up. Xiaomi says the QLED colours are purer and the TV supports 100% of NTSC colour space. It also comes with Xiaomi’s own Vivid Picture Engine, which is the fine-tuning algorithm from the company. Xiaomi had introduced this in the 65-inch 4K TV that it had launched last year.
The panel has a resolution of 840×2160 pixels and includes support for all major HDR formats; this includes Dolby Vision, HLG, HDR 10+ and HDR 10. It also comes with ‘Reality Flow’ or MeMC (Motion Estimation and Motion Compensation) which ensures a smoother frame rate, and is especially useful for watching sports. Users can, however, turn off MeMC depending on their preference. There are a total of 14 picture modes on the TV with personalised settings.
The Mi QLED TV 4K has a total sound output of 30W with a six-driver design. The TV has four full-range woofers and two tweeters to handle higher frequency. The TV has a sound range of 60z to 200khz, according to Xiaomi. The company claims it can support a deeper base and higher frequency, and the TV has a better speaker cavity, which is around one litre in volume.
