Apart from smartphones, Xiaomi is also known for its smart TVs, mostly popular in markets like China and India. Recently, to commemorate its 10th anniversary, the company launched Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition. Now, the company is all set to unveil new 8K and 4K Mi TV models in China as per the 3C certification bureau.
The certifications of the upcoming new Xiaomi televisions were shared by Digital Chat Station (数码闲聊站), a well-known tipster on Weibo. According to him, these TVs will use panels from LG Display.
Going by the name of the model numbers of these TVs, they will be marketed under the same series in 82-inches but with different screen resolution – 4K and 8K respectively.
Due to the difference in their panel resolution, their power rating are dissimilar, however, features such as software (MIUI for TV), connectivity & ports, speakers, and the rest should be common between them.
What’s unknown about these TVs is their panel type. Since LG Display doesn’t supply QLED panels, these forthcoming Mi TVs should either feature OLED or LED-backlit LCD. Also, this goes in line with a report from July, which stated 19 companies will launch a number of OLED TVs with LG Display panel in the second half of the year.
Currently, Xiaomi sells two OLED TVs (standard 65-inch 4K and transparent 55-inch 1080p) under its Mi TV Master Series (aka Mi TV LUX). Both of them are limited to China priced at 12,999 yuan ($1,893) and 49,999 yuan ($7,283) respectively.
