Xiaomi has revealed that the giant 98-inch Redmi Smart TV Max is now in a pre-sale phase again as clearly stocks had dwindled after the amazing sales successes the Chinese OEM had with the huge device. The Redmi Max 98 is currently priced at 19,999 yuan (US$2,855), which is very reasonable for a 98-inch 4K smart TV with MEMC technology.

The smart TV that’s bigger than a single bed is back as Xiaomi has announced the 98-inch Redmi Smart TV Max is now available for a pre-sale price of 19,999 yuan (US$2,855), with buyers securing a device with a deposit of 2,000 yuan (US$286). It appears the Redmi Smart TV Max has been out of stock for a while since its last sale period, which is hardly surprising when you find out that Xiaomi managed to shift 1,000 units of the massive TV in just 3 minutes and 28 seconds.

The 98-inch Redmi Smart TV Max has a lot to offer for its 19,999 yuan, which is a very fair price for the features it has and in comparison with the price tags of devices from premium-branded opposition (Sony, Philips, etc.). There are smart TVs of this size for sale at prices that rocket past 100,000 yuan (US$14,285) in China, so it’s easy to see why the Redmi Max 98 keeps getting snapped up every time it goes on sale, based on its price point alone.

But the Redmi Smart TV Max doesn’t just have an attractive price tag. The 4K smart TV utilizes MEMC technology for smoother images, it covers 85% of the NTSC color gamut, contains a 12nm custom quad-core processor, offers 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, and it can boast of voice-activated remote control.  Unfortunately, Xiaomi hasn’t launched the 98-inch Redmi Smart TV Max in other markets outside of China yet, but hopefully the company will as it is more than likely the 98-incher will become a favorite with shoppers looking for an affordable smart TV that’s larger than their bed.
