Xiaomi has finally managed to bridge the gap between TV and wallpaper courtesy of its new line-up that successfully makes the two completely indistinguishable. Xiaomi’s all-new Mi TV line-up was unveiled at the company’s home turf - China. It’s called Mi Mural TV or Mi Art TV.
Upon taking a closer look, it bears a striking resemblance to Samsung Frame TV to a great extent, and for a reason. Well, Xiaomi Mi Art TV features Samsung’s 65 inches 4K HDR panel with a flat back. The TV blends into a 13.9mm anodized aluminium frame quite beautifully.
There’s something called ‘Art Mode.’ Upon turning it on, it offers artwork from 45 artists across 22 genres. However, it’s open for customisation. If you want, you can customise it with personalised family portraits and pictures. The main attraction of Mi Art TV has to be its sleek design.
It offers up to 18Gbps data transmission using a separate box that connects through a separate Mi port. Other than Mi ports, there’s a six-channel soundbar as well as a separate subwoofer with support for Dolby and DTS-HD audio.
This is an Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled smart TV that allows users to operate devices using voice. Yes, it also comes with the built-in far-field microphones. And yes, it doesn’t miss out on the PatchWall either and that’s important. It also comes with AI Bluetooth voice remote.
In terms of specs, it sports a 65-inch HDR 10 screen featuring 3,840 x 2,160 pixels 4K resolution. Powering the TV is a 1.8GHz quad-core Amologic processor coupled with Mali T830 GPU for graphics. Inside is 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and it runs PatchWall with Android TV.
The standard set of connectivity options include WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz / 5GHz), Bluetooth, 3 x HDMI, 2 x USB and Ethernet. Xiaomi Mi Art TV costs 6,999 yuan (Rs 72,500 approximately). It will go on sale in China starting today.
