Xiaomi has surprisingly announced a new 4K MIJIA laser projector. The device can create up to a 150-inch display and will last for over 25,000 hours. The projector will cost 14,999 Yuan, but Xiaomi is currently running a 5,000 Yuan introductory discount.

Xiaomi has already released a range of projectors and TVs, with the company recently announcing a crowdfunding campaign for its MIJIA projector (Youth Edition). The small 2,199 Yuan (~ US$310) LED projector supports HDR10 and can display in up to 1080p at 500 ANSI lumens.

The Chinese manufacturer has followed this up with a 4K version of its MIJIA laser projector that the company first announced in 2017. The 4K MIJIA can create between 80 and 150-inch screens and utilises HDR10 technology like its cheaper sibling, but only needs to be placed 49 cm from a wall to create a huge 150-inch projection. Moreover, you can place the projector just 14 cm away from a wall if you want an 80-inch screen.

Xiaomi claims that the 4K MIJIA has a 3,000:1 contrast ratio and can reach up to 1,500 ANSI lumens. Additionally, the laser is rated for up to 25,000 hours, which equates to over 17 years usage if used for 4 hours per day. The projector also has stereo speakers that provide Dolby Virtual Surround Sound. The device comes with a remote and is equipped with 3 HDMI ports, a USB 3.0 port and an RJ45 Ethernet port among others.

The 4K MIJIA officially goes on sale for 14,999 Yuan (~ US$2,200) on January 18, but the company has started running an introductory pre-sale today and is offering a 5,000 Yuan (~ US$738) discount.

I got my first smartphone aged 11, my first PC aged 12 and I have been tinkering with electronics ever since. I like to keep abreast of the latest news and technology, which inevitably leads me to switch my laptop and phone every few months. When I'm not writing for Notebookcheck, you will find me seeking out new coffee shops, bars and trying to find some hidden gems in record stores.
