“The Redmi TV boots the same PatchWall OS as the Xiaomi Mi TVs”
The Redmi TV with a 70-inch display, the first from the Xiaomi’s sub-brand, has been launched in China. The company took the wraps off the Redmi TV at the same event where it announced its first 64MP smartphone dubbed as Redmi Note 8 Pro. The Redmi smart TV is among the cheapest and slimmest 70-inch televisions. It comes with a near bezel-less display with 4K HDR resolution and runs the same Android-based PatchWall OS as its parent company’s Mi TV lineup. The TV also boasts built-in 16GB storage and 8GB RAM that lets you download apps, just like your smartphones.
Other features include an Amolgic 64-bit chipset ticking at its core, standard connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, and 3x HDMI ports. As for the audio, the Redmi smart TV 70-inch is backed by Dolby Atmos and DTS HD. The Redmi smart TV 70-inch price in China is set at RMB 3,799 that roughly translates to Rs 39,900 in the Indian currency. The TV will go for sale in the country from September 10th. There is no word on the Redmi smart TV launch in India yet.
In addition to the smart TV, Redmi has launched a refreshed version of its RedmiBook 14 of earlier this year. The laptop seems to share most of its traits with the original RedmiBook 14, except for the processor, which is up to 10th-gen Intel Core i7 processor with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage. The company claims that the new RedmiBook 14 is 13 percent faster than its predecessor. Other specifications of the machine include 14-inch full-HD display with ultra-narrow bezels, an Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics card, and Intelligent Unlock 2.0 feature.
Coming to the price, the RedmiBook 14 starts at RMB 3,999 (~Rs 41,000) for the 10th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD variant whereas the 8GB RAM and 512GB storage variant will set you back to RMB 4,499 (46,0000). The top-end RedmiBook 14 model with the Core i7 processor and 512GB storage costs RMB 4,999 (~Rs 51,000). The machine will go for sale in China from September 6th.
