Xiaomi today announced a 70 inch variant of their Mi TV in China. For those unaware the high-flying Chinese brand had recently launched a 60 inch variant of the Mi TV 3 a month back alongside the Ninebot Mini.
The new 70 inch variant of the Mi TV 3 comes with a 4K (3840x2160p) display from Sharp and boasts a 12.9 mm thin aluminium alloy frame. It however measures at 38.6mm at its thickest part. This is fairly thick as compared to the 60 inch variant which was just 11.6mm. Considering the increase in the real estate the thicker frame of this new Mi TV 3 is nothing to be surprised about.
Coming to the specifications the 4K display sourced from Sharp comes with 178° viewing angle, 120Hz Refresh Rate and 6ms dynamic response time. The panel also boast of a 4000:1 contrast ratio and an 85% NTSC colour gamut.
