Ever since it was launched in last year Xiaomi’s Mi TV has pretty much become an attention grabber, the impressive set of features and the equally impressive price tag seems to have done the trick. Xiaomi in a bid to expand its TV offering has announced Mi TV 3S, a new line-up inclusive of a 63-inch 4K curved TV which ironically bakes in a display from Samsung. Mi TV have been known for its sleek profile and the curved TV is no different thanks to the 5.9-mm slim metal body along with the support for 6-piece Mi TV Bar sound system.
In essence Xiaomi has unveiled two variant’s in the new 3S line-up, one being the 63-inch curved TV we talked about and the another one is a 43-inch flat pane FHD TV. The Xiaomi Mi TV 3S 63-inch curved is powered by a 1.4GHz quad core Mstar 6A928 SoC and a 2GB of RAM alongside an Internal storage of 8GB. The 63-inch curved display boasts of 176-degree viewing angle, dynamic response of 8ms, 4000:1 contrast ration and a 78% NTSC colour Gamut.
On the connectivity front the TV comes with Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, 3X HDMI 2.0 ports, AV, Analog TV, Ethernet, 1 X USB 2.0 and 1X USB 3.0. The audio is delivered via a set of dome tweeters and four 2.5-inch woofer alongside Dolby audio, Virtual Surround Sound and Bass Boost.
The 43-inch Mi TV 3S seems like a watered down version of the larger Mi TV but it doesn’t essentially mean that it loses out on all the front. The 43-inch display we are talking about is sourced from LG and the attributes read 176-degree viewing angle and 8ms dynamic response. The TV is powered by a same 1.4GHz quad core SoC used on the 63-inch TV but with a 1GB of RAM. Internal memory still stands at 8GB and the audio is managed by two full range speakers (30 x 90mm). The 43-inch Mi TV is slightly thicker at 10.9mm and both the models are expected to run Android MIUI.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0LE, 3xHDMI 1.4, VGA ports, Analog TV port, 1xUSB 2.0, 1xUSB 3.0 and Ethernet. The Xiaomi Mi TV 63-inch curved 4K TV is priced at 8,999 yuan ($1380 or Rs 92,300) and the smaller 43-inch FHD TV is priced at an impressive 1799 Yuan ($276/Rs 18,500), the new TV’s are expected to be available in China starting from end of this month however the company is yet to detail out the launch of even the first generation Mi Tv in India.
