Xiaomi’s unveiled 3 new products at its maiden CES venture comprising the Mi TV 4, wireless Mi Router HD, and a white Mi Mix. The last has been the subject of numerous leaks and arrives as an alternative to the original black version of the handset.
The white Mi Mix sports the same near-borderless design as its color counterpart. It also serves up an identical set of specs. Unfortunately, the pearly white option is also a China-only device. Xiaomi hasn’t revealed its price or availability details yet.
It’ll probably stay around the same ballpark as the black Mi Mix’s CNY 3499 (roughly $505 or Rs 34320) cost for the 4GB/128GB model and CNY 3999 ($580 or Rs 39220) value for the 6GB/256GB one. Moving on to the next big launch of the day, the Mi TV 4 is being touted as the brand’s thinnest TV ever at just 4.9mm, 30% slimmer than an iPhone.
Xiaomi claims the TV is one of the first to incorporate Dolby Atmos audio technology. Just like the Mi Mix, it features very narrow bezels. The device further comes with the company’s modular design which separates the main display from the electronics, allowing users to update different parts at their convenience.
On the AI side of things, the Mi TV 4 ships with PatchWall. The UI layer works on top of Android and utilizes deep learning technology to make intelligent content recommendations based on a person’s history and movie metadata. The product is set to ship in China later this year for under or equal to $2000 (approx Rs 135750) and $1500 (about Rs 101810).
Finally, Xiaomi’s Mi Router HD sports top-notch specs like 4 high-gain PCB array antennas and 2500Mbps transfer speeds. The 4 x 4 multi-user MIMO router is set to hit China in Q1 2017 at $200 (around Rs 13580) for the 1TB version and $500 (roughly Rs 33940) for the 8TB one.
