Xiaomi TVs are undoubtedly one of the most successful products in all those markets in which they were introduced. In particular we talk about China, where obviously the brand started it all, and India, a country in which Xiaomi produces and sells TV for several years and that has seen the Mi TVs dominate the Asian country market.
Xiaomi Mi TV Series 5: The AI assistant can recognize the vocal fingerprint
Returning to the present day, the latest TVs to see the spotlight are the Xiaomi Mi TV 5 presented in China just over a week ago. Mi TVs bring several hardware improvements over the previous generation, but this is not the only strength of the new series.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 5 in fact adopt the XiaoAI functionality, a virtual assistant with artificial intelligence able to steal the vocal imprint of different users. This means that XiaoAI will be able to identify every time which voice command comes from.
Based on this recognition, the TV will then show content that could be of interest to the user or even present the display history; a feature that we hope will be optional. So, in theory, fifth generation Mi TVs might be able to start our favorite TV series after a voice command like "Start my favorite series", or start the episode after the one I saw the previous time with a similar command.
A really interesting feature that could please many. This is also because it is combined with the quality hardware we find in the Xiaomi Mi TV series 5. For example, an ultra-thin body with a full-screen design, the metal body is in fact often only 5.9mm. We then have a very efficient CPU with 12nm production process, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.
The TVs then all have a resolution of 4K with Quantum Display technology to reach a range of NTSC colors of 108%, an HDR 10 + certification, MEMC technology for smoother video playback and support for 8K resolution video playback (7680 × 4320 pixel).
The Xiaomi Mi TV 5 have been launched in China with a starting price of 3699 yuan (475 euro) for the 55 inch version, for the larger 65 inch you will have to pay 4999 yuan (640 euro) and finally the gigantic TV from 75 diagonal inches is on sale at 9999 yuan (on 1300 euros). Unfortunately, as you already know, TVs are currently not available outside the Asian country.
