Xiaomi will launch the first Redmi smart TV on March 17 in India. Ahead of its official unveil, Xiaomi has started teasing some key features of the upcoming Redmi TV that the company says offers the “XL Experience”. Moreover, since this will be the first television under the Redmi brand, Xiaomi has also revealed the new Redmi remote.
Manu Kumar Jain, MD at Xiaomi India took to Twitter and revealed that the upcoming Redmi smart TV has Dolby Vision support and is HDR10+ ready. Additionally, the TV has a dedicated picture engine that will optimize the overall visual experience of watching your favourite movies or TV shows.
Xiaomi’s Redmi India Twitter handle has also posted a picture of the new Redmi remote that will be bundled along with the new Redmi smart TV. The remote is similar to the ones Xiaomi provides with its Mi range of smart TVs. There’s a dedicated button each for Netflix and Prime Video confirming their presence and the TV is expected to run PatchWall UI out-of-the-box.
Xiaomi is yet to reveal the exact specifications of the upcoming Redmi TV so we don’t know how large the display is going to be. However, given the presence of Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support, it is likely to be a 4K TV. Xiaomi could also launch a 65-inch smart TV in India since the Mi TV 4X 65-inches is no longer listed on the Xiaomi website. The Mi TV 4X was launched back in 2019 so it's already due for an upgrade.
Xiaomi Redmi ‘XL Experience’ smart TV has also been listed on Amazon, indicating that it will be available to purchase from Amazon India after its launch. While the listing does not reveal the features of the upcoming products, the company could launch new TVs under the Redmi X or Redmi Max series as it does in China.
Then again, there is a possibility that we may get an entirely new product range under the Redmi brand, and we expect Xiaomi to reveal key details in the heads-up to the launch on March 17. Xiaomi has confirmed that it will launch the Redmi Smart TV on March 17 at 12:00 PM in India.
