Xiaomi launches the 65-inch Mi TV Master Series: Gaming-friendly 120 Hz OLED with MIUI for TV priced at 12,999 yuan (US$1,840)
The 65-inch Xiaomi Mi TV Master Series has been launched by the Chinese OEM, and it brings a host of features for a surprisingly low price. It had been rumored that the first OLED TV from Xiaomi could cost well over 15,999 yuan (US$2,264), but now it seems customers in China are in for a treat with the set being priced at 12,999 yuan (US$1,840).
Television fans will be pleased with the 4K OLED 120 Hz panel and Xiaomi has offered up numerous facts about the 65-inch Mi TV Master Series set to entice customers: Nine speakers creating a 3D panoramic soundscape (to 65 W), artificial intelligence and MIUI for TV based on the Android TV operating system, absolute black level thanks to the panel type, color-accurate DeltaE of 1.5, and its own MediaTek processor for smart calculations.
As for gamers, the Xiaomi Mi TV Master Series OLED has just as much to offer. Along with the aforementioned high refresh rate and decent response time, the 65-inch smart TV can tackle variable refresh rates (VRR), supports HDMI 2.1 connections that are all-important for the next generation of consoles, and it features the increasingly standard MEMC high-speed motion compensation technology.
With all the technology stuffed inside it, Xiaomi could almost be forgiven for forgetting about the aesthetics of its first OLED TV. However, the Master Series set has extremely narrow bezels thus allowing for as much screen real estate as possible (98.8% apparently) and, thanks to the use of metal and glass in its construction, it has the visual appeal that matters to many when purchasing a new smart TV. The 65-inch Xiaomi Mi TV Master Series unit goes on sale from July 3 for 12,999 yuan (US$1,840).
