Xiaomi set to build on recent TV sales successes with the launch of two 82-inch smart TVs
Xiaomi has released a number of TVs of recent, starting with the incredibly successful 98-inch Redmi Smart TV Max and on to its flagship Mi TV Master Series and the US$7,200 Mi TV Lux OLED Transparent Edition. The company isn't stopping there, though, and is set to debut two new TVs.
The two TVs were certified recently in China, with the listing giving a good idea of what to expect. From the official page, it can be deduced that the two TVs will be absolutely massive, sitting at an 82-inch diagonal size. Not quite as big as the aforementioned 98-inch Redmi Smart TV Max but bigger than all of Xiaomi's other recent releases.
The listing also implies that the two TVs will offer different resolutions. The two TVs are listed with the model numbers "L82M6-8K" and "L82M6-4K", potentially showing that one will be an 8K TV while the other, cheaper one will only offer a 4K resolution.
According to the source, Digital Chat Station, both TVs will use panels supplied by LG Displays. LG Displays is widely regarded as offering some of the best TV displays in the world, and this wouldn't be the first time Xiaomi has sourced its panels from the South Korean company—the new Mi TV Lux OLED Transparent Edition, for example, is said to use an LGD panel.
Xiaomi’s two new TVs have entered the network, both with 82-inch LGD screens. Does that suffix mean 8K resolution? Expensive [acid]— Digital Chat Station (@StationChat) August 29, 2020
