LAS VEGAS — The Chinese giant company Xiaomi is targeting to ultra-thin TV market.


The organization introduced a new smart TV, the Mi TV 4, during a press event at CES Thursday. The ultra-slim established is just under 5 millimeters thick, producing it the organization’s thinnest TV yet.

Since it is so thin, the television boats with a dedicated soundbar that buildings the Mi TV’s speakers and other components. The soundbar connects to the TV via a single cable.

The soundbar is also equipped with Dolby Atmos era which enables more three dimensional surround sound. It will also be compatible with older establisheds from the organization so those who have previously purchased TVs from the organization can upgrade their sound and software.

But the stand apart feature of the TV is how thin it is. At 4.9 millimeters, the established is thinner than an iPhone, though it’s still thicker than the 2.57 millimeter OLED established LG just unveiled. Also, in contrast to LG’s established, which is the same thickness throughout the body of the TV, Xiaomi’s Mi TV 4 is thicker at the base to match the optional base.

The organization said it intentionally produced the base to look clear so it would appear as if it were “floating” all over the world it is placed.

The sub $2,000 price tag is also likely to be seriously cheaper than LG’s TV, which hasn’t been given a price yet. Of course, as with other Xiaomi gear the Mi TV 4 will only be available in China when it techniques on sale later this year.
