Xiaomi’s CES announcement roundup! TVs, Routers and more!
We’ve come to the end of Xiaomi CES announcement, and as usual, we’ve got a set of products to talk about. And honestly, what a weird set of products for Xiaomi CES to launch, at Xiaomi CES nonetheless. The new products are launched by Xiaomi CES 2017. What we can say that the products launch by Xiaomi CES.
Xiaomi Mi Mix, in white
This one isn’t too surprising, as we’ve already seen leaked images of it online. Internally, the device is exactly the same as the original Xiaomi Mi Mix, so don’t expect improved performance or the like. It may look different, but’s it’s still just the Mi Mix.
On top of that, the Mi Mix in white will still be exclusive to China, which is a bummer. We were really expecting Xiaomi CES to make an attempt to penetrate the US this year. So yeah, a brand new white Mi Mix, not incredibly exciting, but sure.
Xiaomi Mi Router HD
The Xiaomi Mi Router HD is Xiaomi CES latest router, and it’s pretty much just that. The new router features a built-in 1TB/8TB hard disk that lets you back up all of your devices at home. Specs-wise, it’s pretty much the same thing as the Mi Router Pro.
The Xiaomi Mi Router HD is a pretty interesting gadget, but not something we really expected. So far, it’s been a pretty unremarkable launch. Nothing new of interest has been announced, and there’s been a distinct lack of new phones.
Xiaomi Mi TV 4
Here we go, something new and exciting! So, what does the latest Xiaomi TV have in store for us this time? For starters, the Xiaomi Mi TV 4 is a high-end TV set that features a 4.9mm thick frame, virtually no bezel, and a modular system that separates the panel from the rest of the electronics. That’s a pretty good start so far!
What about the operating system, I here you ask your computer monitor. Xiaomi is using an AI-driven system and its Patch Wall UI on top of Android, version unknown. It gives viewers personalized recommendations from millions of Chinese titles to fit every user. It uses an neat adaptive grid which Bara claims is inspired by modern magazine layouts.
Along with that, the Xiaomi Mi TV 4 features something Barra likes to call a ‘modular TV system’. The idea is that the motherboard for the Mi TV 4 is in the TV’s soundbar, which allows the TV to be so thin. Said soundbar has 10 speakers; two wireless speakers, a subwoofer, and support for Dolby Atmos surround sound. The Soundbar is also where all the ports are, making cable management somewhat easier.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 4 will be available in three different display sizes- 49-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch. The 65-inch model will be available for ‘well under $2000’ and will be shipped later this year. Same goes for the 55-inch model, though it’ll be priced lower than $1500 instead. The 49-inch model on the other hand remains a mystery, at least for now. Oh, all models will also be limited to China, so nothing new there.
