Wallpaper TV’s from LG get a new contender in the market. Xiaomi just recently disclosed a new TV series under the branding Mi Mural TV. The highlight of this new TV being its aesthetic design and a beautiful 65 inches display panel from Samsung.
Xiaomi has managed to keep the Mi Mural TV as slim as just 13.9mm. It is having a back design which is completely flat. This unique design helps it to stay even to the wall on which it is mounted, resembling a wall mounted painting. It is clear that this design would be appealing to people who are a great fan of LG’s Wallpaper Televisions.
How Xiaomi managed to get this super thin form factor? Well, it managed to do so by integrating most of its hardware in the bottom region of the TV. This includes the power supply unit, the speakers and the motherboard, which are housed at the bottom region. The rest of the TV just has a 65 inches display from Samsung. It supports a pixel resolution of 3840 x 2160 (commonly called as 4K screen).
The internal connections of the TV are made using a new MiPort line, the company claims. This wired setup consists of 30 cables inside it. These help in transfer of high power supply and high resolution data signals. Technically speaking, these wires support a data transmission rate of 18Gbps and can carry high power supply of upto 400W.
Coming to the performance aspect of the Mi Mural TV. The motherboard unit houses an Amlogic quad-core processor. It is powered by a Mali-T830MP2 GPU running at 1.8Ghz. Moreover, there is 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage available on board.
The Mi Mural TV consists of three HDMI ports and two USB ports available for input. Other connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.2 and 2.4G/5G Wi-Fi ac.
The multimedia experience on the Mi Mural TV is definitely going to be a great experience with the TV having a six-channel Soundbar along with a subwoofer. The speaker output is powered by Dolby surround sound and DTS-HD dual decoding.
Further enhancing the multimedia experience, along with watching your favourite TV shows, Xiaomi also gives you a slideshow mode. It is similar to what Samsung and LG provide on their TV’s. It allows you to display your family photographs, portraits and wallpapers in a slideshow manner.
Furthermore, the Mi Mural TV would be incomplete with all the smart home control features. Thus, this TV is also in accordance with the company’s recent Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) strategy. This means that you have a remote control of all your smart home connected devices. Moreover, the Mi TV comes integrated with XiaoAI assist along with support for voice recognition. This truely makes the TV a complete smart package for your home.
The pricing of the Mi Mural TV has been kept at 6999 Yuan (~$ 1040). The installation would be provided free of cost by Xiaomi. Pre-orders for the TV have already started in China.
