Meet up Redmi smart tv max, A 98-inch TV that comes with its own white glove VIP installation service. Available at 19,999 yuan (that’s US $ 2,800, £ 2,200, AU $ 4,000), this absurd large-scale display isn’t really so expensive.
The next cheapest 98-inch display in the market is ViewSonic IFP9850, A touchscreen monitor that costs almost three times as much.
The bad news is that you cannot currently buy Redmi Smart TV MAX as long as you live in China. However, given the extraordinary popularity of this 98-inch set, we would not be surprised if Xiaomi started selling it in other countries as well.
The TV is roughly the same size as a four-inch by four-inch display, in the same proportion as a double bed. The screen’s viewable dimensions are 2190 x 1255 mm and the set probably weighs over 100 kilograms, making it problematic to install.
Picture-wise, it is a 4K display (the worst pixel density (45ppi) in the market). It covers 85% of the NTSC color space, supported by 192 local dimming zones with direct LED backlighting, 60 Hz motion estimation and compensation and other quality tweaking technologies.
It has a total of four speakers (plus Dolby and DTS decoding), only three HDMI ports, an SPDIF output, and a built-in Android box that runs on an 8-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage.
