The Mi Surface is a recently-released gaming-focused monitor from Xiaomi. Now, a new leak has pointed toward an additional variant of this display line. It is to measure 29 inches rather than 34 as in the original, yet retain this device's 1500R curvature and 144 hertz (Hz) refresh rate.

Xiaomi launched its new gaming monitor, the Mi Surface, last month (October 2019) in China. Now, the blog MyDrivers claims to have heard that it is coming back in a different size. The first iteration had a 34-inch panel, whereas this new variant is rumored to be 5 inches smaller. However, it may retain the rest of the emerging display series' specs.

The first Xiaomi Mi Surface has a panel with a 21:9 aspect ratio, AMD FreeSync, 121% of the sRGB color space and a 4 millisecond (ms) response time. The rumored 29-inch variant may also have these attributes, and also be as 1500R-curved as its predecessor. It is also said to retain the 34-inch model's 144Hz refresh rate.

MyDrivers also asserts that this device will be the third Mi Surface, not the second: apparently, there is a 23.8-inch variant knocking around the OEM's domestic market at present. The blog was less specific about the 29-inch Mi Surface's putative price-tag, however. The first of this line started at 1999 yuan (about US$280); therefore, the new product could be expected to go for a little less than this.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
