Redmi presented his first television last summer and now, taking advantage of the arrival of the Redmi K30 Pro, he brings us his new model. And watch out, because this is a 98-inch TV. A gigantic TV that comes at a heartbeat price.
This is the Redmi TV Max, a TV with 4K resolution and a huge size, focused for those who have generous rooms or simply want to see the content as large as possible. At 98 inches, Redmi TV Max rivals the size usually offered by projectors. You’re not the first manufacturer to introduce us to a 98-inch TV. In fact, other brands such as Philips, LG or Sony already have models in this size. But it is still striking how big such a TV can be. In Redmi’s promotional images, the Redmi TV Max is compared directly to the sofa or even the bed. In total, we have a device that is more than two metres wide and weighs 70 kilograms.
For the screen, Redmi relies on a 98-inch LCD panel with 4K resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. We have an 85% NTSC colour gamut, HDR support and a small 192-level backlight for improved image quality.
Inside the TV is a 12-nanometer Cortex A55 64-bit processor and a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. It comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage – more than enough to keep the system running smoothly.
The operating system used by Redmi TV Max is PatchWall, its solution for the Chinese market. Although, it is known that Xiaomi bets for a cleaner Android TV in the international market. An option that is likely to be incorporated in case this model expands to more countries,.
For sound, the Redmi TV Max offers a two-speaker system of 8W each, compatible with Dolby Audio and DTS-HD sound.
The Redmi TV Max will be available for purchase from April in China. At the moment there are no announced plans for its expansion and it is difficult for us to see it elsewhere, considering the large size of this product.
Its price? Redmi offers its giant 98-inch TV for 19,999 Yuan, about $2,900 at the latest exchange rate. It is true that this is not a high-end television, but even so it is a very competitive price considering that it has a diagonal of 98 inches.
Please also note that to feed the beast, 4K content must be available, either through Netflix or similar streaming platforms or through Freesat TV or other satellite TV services that have this resolution. This will be a great addition to entertaining your family and guests; it will be perfect for a night in with the family watching movies.
