The Xiaomi Mi TV 5 is shaping up to be a powerful smart screen
Xiaomi has spent some of the last few days hyping its new Mi TV 5 up ahead of its impending launch. The OEM has leaked more of its specs, such as the 4K Quantum Dot nature of its display. This panel will also cover 108% of the NTSC color gamut. Then again, some of these same properties were found in the pre-existing big-screen series from this company. However, its successor may improve on it in a number of important ways.
The Mi TV 5 is to be powered by a 12 nanometer (nm) SoC called the T972, reportedly developed by Amologic in conjunction with Xiaomi itself. It is a 1.9GHz processor with 4 A55 cores, as opposed to the 1.5GHz A53-based MediaTek chipset found in the recently-released OnePlus smart screen. Their maker claims that the new silicon is associated with 63% greater performance compared to the old.
Furthermore, the new Mi TV will be equipped with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, whereas most Android TV devices today get by with 2 or 3GB at best, as they do with a typical 8-16GB in terms of internal space for apps.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 5 is scheduled for launch alongside the company's new Watch (which has recently been reported to run a version of MIUI for wearables) and the Mi CC 9 Pro (a phone recently confirmed to run the Snapdragon 730G SoC) on November 5, 2019.
