Mi TV Lux: how the new OLED Smart TVs from Xiaomi are made

Xiaomi makes official the new generation of OLED Smart TVs Xiaomi Mi TV Lux: killer specs for the 77" version, interesting balance for the 65" and 55"

The ratio between display extension and total surface area of 96.2% is probably alone enough to summarize the second generation of OLED Smart TVs from Xiaomi, Mi TV Lux. The level is very high, mainly in terms of design if only because it is the first aspect that anyone can notice, but the technical content is not at all less.

To realize them Xiaomi has used the latest generation of the panel V21 that is capable of pushing a maximum brightness very high, up to 1,000 nits, to support almost all the technologies of quality enhancement such as Dolby Vision and also has the certification IMAX Enhanced. Xiaomi Mi TV Lux even comes to host 9 speakers including three subwoofers to offer the most immersive sound possible for a total of 70 watts, is equipped with an Ultra Wide Band chip for fast connection to devices that support it, such as the recent Xiaomi Mi Mix 4. In short, technical refinement, which does not end with these specifications, meets the design, for a Smart TV with 8.2 mm metal frame and glass back cover.

Xiaomi Mi TV Lux, the features

First of all, the size. The new generation of Xiaomi Mi TV Lux OLED Smart TV is declined in three sizes: 77, 65 and 55 inches, with the first one possessing the highest level technical card and the last two offering something less while maintaining a high positioning.

Both have a 4K OLED panel with 178-degree viewing angle, 98.5% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, up to 1.07 billion colors, up to 1,000 nits of maximum brightness (900 nits for the "smaller" ones), support for HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, 120 Hz refresh rate (for 77").

The chip is a quad core manufactured by MediaTek accompanied by a Mali-G52 MC2 GPU that allow to support some interesting technologies, especially for those who use the Smart TV for gaming: NVIDIA G-SYNC, automatic low-latency mode (ALLM) and variable refresh rate (VRR).

The memories differ, even in an important way: 8.5 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage for the 77-inch, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage for the two 65- and 55-inch. There is the possibility of voice control via the assistant Xiao Ai, which, however, in our parts would be useless since it is in Chinese.

Nothing is missing on the connectivity front: Wi-Fi 802.11 dual-band ac type (ax for 77"), Bluetooth 5.0, 3 HDMI inputs including one eARC, 2 USB inputs, S/PDIF, Ethernet, and finally UWB only for the 77" model.

On the speakers instead there is one of the main differentiations, perhaps the most important between the 77" variant and the two 65" and 55", which however could be easily overcome with a soundbar or a good home theater system. Anyway, it's nine total speakers on the 77" in which Harman Kardon's paw allowed for 70 watts, it's four for a total of 25 watts on the 65" and 55" Mi TV Lux.
