Xiaomi debuts new 75-inch 4K LCD TV with full-array local dimming

Chinese brand Xiaomi is expanding its European TV lineup with the very affordable and impressive-looking, 75-inch Mi TV Q1, but it’s not clear if it will go on sale in the U.K.


The Xiaomi Mi TV Q1 is a 4K resolution LCD television that’s beefed up with full-array local dimming technology, offering 192 dimming zones in total. The display uses quantum dots for an improved colour gamut and offers a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. It runs Android TV 10, which means lots of apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and thousands of games to play.

The TV also supports a nice number of high dynamic range formats, including Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG. The Android TV interface means it supports voice commands via Google Assistant and built-in Google Chromecast, too.

The Xiaomi Mi TV Q1 also looks like a good option for gamers with its HDMI 2.1 ports and features such as Auto Low Latency Mode and a native 120Hz refresh rate that should pair nicely with the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

Other models in Xiaomi’s Mi TV range include the 65-inch Mi TV Lux OLED TV that was launched last year in China, and a luxury transparent version of that product called the Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition, which is only available in a 55-inch size.

Xiaomi made its first appearance in the European TV market in 2019 and sells its products there through its own online store and also through various retail partners. The company is one of several Chinese firms trying to expand internationally, along with brands like Huawei and OnePlus, following in the footsteps of companies such as TCL and Hisense, which have already established a strong international presence.

Unfortunately, it looks as though U.K. buyers may have to hop over the channel if they want to get their hands on the Xiaomi Mi TV Q1, as the company has only said it will go on sale in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Still, it may be worth the hassle for anyone looking for an affordable, high-end 4K TV, as it’s very competitively priced at just 1,300 euros, or about £1,140.
