(approximately $ 2,800 / 2,200 / / AU $ 4,000)
This absurdly large show by Xiaomi is actually quite affordable, given its size. The screen is almost as big as a double bed, with visible dimensions 2190 x 1255mm. It’s only available in China for now, but check out this space. Look at the deal
tap Redmi Smart TV MAX, a 98-inch TV that comes with its own VIP installation service with white handle. Available at 19,999 yuan (that’s about US $ 2,800, 2,200, 4,000 AU), this absurd mass show is actually not that expensive.
The next cheapest 98-inch screen on the market is that ViewSonic IFP9850, a touch screen monitor that costs about three times as much.
The bad news is that you can not currently buy a Redmi Smart TV MAX unless you live in China. However, given the tremendous popularity of this 98-inch set, we would not be surprised if Xiaomi would start selling it in other countries as well.
The TV is roughly equivalent in size with four 50-inch screens placed side by side – the same size as a double bed. The visible dimensions of the screen are a whopping 2190 x 1255 mm and the band probably weighs more than 100 kg, which makes installation problematic.
Apparently, it is a 4K screen with (surprisingly) the worst pixel density on the market (45ppi). It covers 85% of the NTSC color space, supported by 192 local dark areas with direct LED lighting, 60Hz motion evaluation and compensation, and other quality tweak technologies.
It features four speakers in total (plus Dolby and DTS decoding), just three HDMI ports, an SPDIF output and an integrated Android box running on an 8-core processor, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB onboard storage.
