Last year, Xiaomi launched its largest smart TV ever called Redmi Smart TV MAX 98”. Almost a year later, the company has now started teasing another such model. This television is said to be announced at the Redmi K40 series launch event, which is scheduled for February 25.
Xiaomi’s official smart TV Weibo account posted a teaser for the upcoming Redmi MAX TV. In the post, the company asks netizens to guess the size of the newer model to win a Bluetooth speaker.
So far, the company has not revealed any highlights of this TV. The firm has only hinted that the forthcoming Redmi MAX TV will be ‘so big that it almost can’t get into the elevator’.
For those unaware, the Redmi Smart TV MAX 98” released in 2020 is Xiaomi’s largest television till now. As the name suggests, this television flaunts a 98-inch LED-backlit LCD panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (4K) and a 60Hz refresh rate. The screen has a 178° viewing angle, 98.8% screen-to-body ratio, and supports 85% of the NTSC color gamut.
It is powered by an Amlogic T972 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. On the connectivity front, the TV comes with dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth, Infrared, 3 x HDMI (one of them is ARC compatible), AV composite, DTMB port, 2 x USB, Ethernet, and S/PDIF.
Other features of this TV include 2 x 8W speakers, Dolby Audio, DTS-HD, HDR, MEMC, Xiao AI voice assistant, and PatchWall content aggregation service. The product debuted for ¥19,999 and it is still listed at the same price on Mi.com.
Because of its sheer size, the Redmi Smart TV MAX 98” was only available online for a long time. It finally hit a single offline store in December 2020. This television is difficult to manufacture and its installation requires a specially trained workforce.
