Earlier today, Xiaomi officially announced to launch Mi TV LUX Ultra 8K 5G (Mi TV Master Series Extreme Commemorative Edition) on September 28. A few hours later, the company dropped another teaser confirming it to feature mini-LED panel.
So far, Xiaomi has launched two models under its Mi TV Master series, which is known as Mi TV LUX in global markets. The first model called Mi TV LUX 65” OLED was released in July 2020. A month later, the company launched another television called Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition as the world’s cheapest as well as first mass-produced transparent TV.
Now, more than a month later, the company will launch Mi TV LUX Ultra 8K 5G as the world’s first mass-manufactured 8K mini-LED TV with 5G connectivity. That means two of the three models under Xiaomi’s premium smart TV series are world firsts.
That said, mini-LED fixes almost all the problems that OLED has. These type of panels are brighter, burn-in free, and consume less power. Above all, they are as thin as OLED and hence, the televisions equipped with them are not thicker.
Since the screen on this upcoming Mi TV will be of 8K (7680 x 4320) resolution, it will also come with an integrated 5G modem to enable users to stream high-quality content at higher speeds.
Though Xiaomi is yet to reveal the size of this television, it has been already leaked to feature an 82-inch panel supplied by LG Display.
