Xiaomi is expected to release a new OLED TV tomorrow, launching a new line of OLED TVs in the company’s lineup. Only the Mi TV Lux, a $6,000 TV with a transparent OLED panel and 120Hz refresh rate, has been part of Xiaomi’s OLED TV lineup so far. The new OLED Mi TV, on the other hand, is expected to be a little different, with teasers indicating that gaming will be the new lineup’s main selling point, according to teasers posted on Chinese social media platforms.
The Xiaomi OLED TV is expected to focus on gaming, according to teasers on Weibo. As a result, the TV’s refresh rate will most likely be higher than 75Hz. On top of providing variable refresh rates (VRR), OLED TVs with 120Hz refresh rates are expected to be critical in allowing users to get the most out of new generation gaming hardware like the Microsoft Xbox Series X and the Sony PlayStation 5. The new TV is also said to be Nvidia G-Sync certified, implying that it will most likely live up to the rumors of a high refresh rate.
Other features that could be included in the new OLED TVs include HDR playback and certification (which should be standard on any OLED TV worth it is salt), ultra-low motion blur for super smooth high frame rate rendering, and low input lag to ensure that the TV can handle the high data bandwidth that the latest generation consoles can deliver. This also implies HDMI 2.1 support, indicating that even if Xiaomi considers a more mainstream OLED TV, it will be flagship-worthy.
So far, there isn’t much information about how much the Xiaomi OLED TV will cost or whether it will be released in global markets like India. We’re also not sure what its price will be, but given that OLED TVs aren’t cheap, even with Xiaomi’s track record of low prices, the new Xiaomi OLED TV is likely to be expensive.
