Xiaomi teases the Mi TV ES 2022 series with high-end features at more affordable price-points
Xiaomi's Mi TVs are increasingly popular options as smart screens and smart-home hubs marketed as Android or in-house Patchwall UI devices in a number of regions worldwide. This may be why the company has announced plans to expand this line with a brand new series: ES 2022.
The OEM has already indicated that they will start at the 4,000-yuan (or ~US$620) mark. However, they are also touted to offer specs that Xiaomi apparently feels are lacking at this price-point. They include local dimming, as well as improved brightness and color accuracy - features that may also be found in the upcoming successors to the flagship Mi TV 5 line.
All in all, it seems the less familiar screens will comprise the next new tier up from the recently teased EA 2022 series. All of these TVs will, as the name suggests, become available about six months or more from now, something the ES devices will reportedly do in 55-, 65- and 75-inch SKUs.
Then again, Xiaomi has yet to mention a release outside China for these potentially attractive new options. However, more might yet be said on this subject at the Mi TV ES' launch. It will take place alongside that of the 6-series' debut, scheduled for June 28, 2021.
