98-inch Xiaomi Redmi Smart TV MAX – 19,999 yuan from Mi.
(approximately $ 2800 / £ 2200 / AU $ 4000)
This absurdly large display from Xiaomi is actually quite affordable, considering its size. The screen is approximately the size of a double bed, with visible dimensions of 2190 x 1255 mm. So far, it is only available in China, but look at this space. See the deal
Meet the village Redmi Smart TV MAX, A 98-inch TV that comes with its own VIP installation for a white glove. Available at 19,999 yuan (that’s about $ 2,800, £ 2,200, $ 4,000), this absurdly massive display isn’t really that expensive.
The next cheapest 98-inch display on the market is ViewSonic IFP9850,, a touch monitor that costs about three times as much.
The bad news is that you can’t buy a Redmi Smart TV MAX right now unless you live in China. However, given the extreme popularity of this 98-inch kit, we will not be surprised if Xiaomi starts selling it in other countries.
The TV is approximately equivalent in size to four 50-inch displays placed next to each other – approximately the same proportions as a double bed. The visible dimensions of the screen are a huge 2190 x 1255 mm, and the kit probably weighs more than 100 kg, which makes installation difficult.
Picture-picture, this is a 4K display with (surprisingly) the worst pixel density on the market (45ppi). It covers 85% of NTSC’s color space, supported by 192 local dimming zones with direct LED backlighting, 60Hz motion estimation and motion compensation, and other quality tuning technologies.
It has a total of four speakers (plus Dolby and DTS decoding), only three HDMI ports, SPDIF output and a built-in Android box that runs on an 8-core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in space.
