Xiaomi launches Android-powered Mi TV 3 with 60-inch 4K display for less than $800

Xiaomi, on Monday, unveiled the Mi TV 3, a 60-inch TV with 4K display at a price point of RMB 4,999 ($780). Much like the Mi TV 2 and previous generation television sets from the company, the Mi TV 3 has been launched in the company's home market China.

The Mi TV 3 sports an LG-made 60-inch 4K display with lossless quality, MEMC, and color gamut. The display comes with full aluminum frame running along the sides. At 11.6mm, the Mi TV 3 is pretty sleek too. It is powered by a MStar 6A928 processor consisting of Cortex-A17 and Mali T760 GPU. An 8GB eMMC 5.0 flash is used as the internal storage. The company hasn't revealed any information about the RAM module.

On the connectivity side, there are three HDMI ports, two USB ports, one VGA port, one Ethernet port, one AV in, an output for Subwoofer, and a standard RF Modulator. On the audio front, the Mi TV 3 features Virtual Surround technology, deeper bass, and dialogue enhance tool with auto volume balance support. The company says that acoustics for the TV has been put together by Grammy award winner Luca Bugnardi, and former research head at Philips acoustics Wang Fuyu.

The speaker bar, which sells separately at RMB 999 ($160), is made of four mid-range 2.5-inch subwoofer, and interestingly comes with the main board of the TV. The company says that it has separated the processor board from the screen, as doing this significantly reduces the replacement cost of internal components. This also increases the life cycle of the TV, the company claimed.

The Mi TV 3, much like previous Mi TV sets, has been debuted in China. At this point, there is no word on its international availability. But considering the company plans to sell some of its products in the United States and select other regions and has already expanded its base market outside China, there is a good chance that it might someday become available at your place.

Note: The article was edited shortly after publishing to specify that the speaker contains the main board of the TV. An earlier version of the story didn't make it clear.
