Xiaomi Launches Super Affordable 4K TVs Starting at Just S$599, New Phones & More
Updated: Aug 21, 2021
If you’re looking for an affordable upgrade for your TV, well, Xiaomi has just launched a whole host of products, and one of them is the Mi TV P1.
Coming in three different sizes (32″, 43″ and 55″) for the Singapore market, you’ll only be looking at the 43″ and 55″ models if you want a 4K television. These run at 60Hz and also support HDMI eARC 2.1, which means you’ll be able to fully enjoy a smooth 4K60fps gaming experience if you’re lucky enough to have bought a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S. There’s also Dolby Vision support on these two models and the 55″ even has HDR10+ support.
Both variants come with an embedded mic in the TV so that users can easily control the TV and any connected smart devices with their voice instead of fumbling with a remote. The 43″ model will cost S$599 and the 55″ model will retail for S$799, but Xiaomi is also offering a limited launch promotion with every purchase of the 43″ and 55″ Mi TV P1 receiving a free Mi Band 6 (worth S$65) or Mi Robot Vacuum Mop Essential (worth S$299) respectively.
The 32″ TV is the HD little brother, with HDMI 2.0 ports and a single HDMI port that supports ARC. At S$329, it’s definitely an affordable model for people who aren’t looking to spend too much. Even better, Xiaomi’s limited-time launch promotion cuts the price down to S$299!
For people who only want the biggest and the best though, Xiaomi is also bringing in the 4K 75″ Mi TV Q1, with a 120Hz refresh rate available through MEMC upscaling, HDR10 and HDR10+, Dolby Vision and more. If you’re looking for a new TV for the living room, this S$2,499 option might just be it. The Q1 is definitely priced higher than Xiaomi’s other offerings, but for the size and features offered, it’s looking incredibly value-for-money!
All the televisions mentioned above will be available for preorder from 6 June 2021 onwards at official online Xiaomi stores, authorised Mi stores and other retailers. Preorders will receive a free Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P worth S$499, while stocks last.
That’s not all Xiaomi announced though. There’s a new addition to the Redmi Note 10 lineup, with the new Redmi Note 10 5G coming to market at just S$329 for the 8GB+128GB model. It’s running on the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, but the most intriguing feature is that the phone can support dual 5G SIMs, which means that even if one network drops, you’ll still be able to browse at 5G speeds as long as one SIM card is working.
The phone also has a 6.5-inch FHD+ display running at a 90Hz refresh rate, triple rear camera array with 48MP main camera and a huge 5,000mAh battery to keep the phone running the whole day. At this price point, it’s definitely an affordable option for people who want 5G on their phones.
For a limited time, Redmi Note 10 5G purchases will receive free gifts of a Redmi Note 10 5G T-Shirt, Mi True Wireless Earbuds Basic 2 and 6-Months Screen Protection Warranty for purchases made before 28 August 2021. The phone will be available at Xiaomi’s online stores on Lazada and Shopee, authorised Mi stores and other official retailers from 29 May 2021.
If the Mi 11 piqued your interest, but it was too expensive, well, the Mi 11 Lite 5G is here! We can always trust Xiaomi to come up with Lite versions of their flagship phones that still offer pretty good performance at a lower price.
Furthermore, the Mi 11 Lite 5G comes in three colours: Truffle Black, which is pretty standard, and the funky Mint Green and Citrus Yellow! The 6.5-inch FHD+ display also supports a 90Hz refresh rate, but there’s 10-bit colour, HDR10+ support and 240Hz touch sampling rate. The phone will come with the Snapdragon 780G chip and will be available in just one configuration for Singapore: 8GB+128GB.
There’s a triple rear camera array headlined by a 64MP lens as well as a 20MP selfie camera, and the 4,250mAh battery might not be the biggest, but it supports 33W fast wired charging.
The Mi 11 Lite 5G retails for S$549 and will be available starting 29 May 2021 at authorised Mi stores, official retailers as well as at telcos (M1, StarHub & Singtel) in Singapore. There is also a limited-time promotion with every purchase of Mi 11 Lite 5G receiving an exclusive free set of Mi True Wireless Earbuds Basic 2.
