At the Beijing event, Xiaomi also announced newer variants of the Mi TV 3s alongside the Mi 5s and the Mi 5s Plus. The 55-inch Mi TV 3S is priced at CNY 3,499, while the 65-inch variant is priced at CNY 4,999 (apprx. Rs 49,800). The 65-inch Mi TV 3S with home theater is priced at CNY 5,999 (apprx. 59,800.) Xiaomi touting the rather compact form factor says that the TV is 9.9mm at its thinnest point and 37.6 mm at the thickest point. The bezels are made out of anodised aluminium frame and even the back panel is made out of brushed aluminium.
Both the Mi TV 3S variants are powered by a 64-bit AMlogic T966 processor which is made up of 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and aided by a Mali-T830 GPU. The SoC is complemented by the 2GB RAM and 8GB of Internal storage. The 55-inch variant employs an LG IPS display while the 65-inch variant features a Samsung display, both supporting 4K resolution.
On the connectivity front, the Mi TV 3S comes with a Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI and the usual USB ports. The TV’s are capable of displaying 4K content at 60fps along with the H.265 hardware and is powered by the latest image quality engine. The audio setup consists of four standard speakers along with Xiaomi’s signature sound bar. Furthermore, the TV also comes with Dolby, DTS and HDR.
Another mention worthy feature is something that Xiaomi refers to as PatchWall Puzzzle system. The PatchWall is said to be powered by AI and is designed to learn your interests and automatically suggest the relevant TV shows and movies. The home theatre unit with 2.25-inch full-range rear surround speakers and a freshly designed sub-woofer is worth your money if you are looking out for a better audio experience.
