While we await tomorrow's launch of the Redmi Note 10 series which promises some truly exceptional hardware for the mid-range, Xiaomi has just obtained a certification for what should be its next TV, also most likely mid-range.
Xiaomi Mi TV on Google Play Console: new smart TV for the global market?
A new Xiaomi Mi TV with still unknown model name has in fact just appeared with the code name "Croods" on the Google Play Console platform.
The web page shows us the chipset on board the TV, as well as the amount of RAM, the screen resolution and even the operating system.
So let's start with the chipset, which from what we can see will be a MediaTek t31, a CPU composed of four ARM Cortex A55 cores with a maximum frequency of 1200Mhz. As for the graphics, the processor is accompanied by an Arm Mali-G52 with a maximum clock of 550mAh. The SoC is then paired with 2 GB of RAM, an average amount for a smart TV.
The certification also shows us that the Xiaomi Mi TV will adopt a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (FHD), with a DPI (screen density) of 320. This resolution suggests that it is a mid-range TV, if not even entry-level. Also, not knowing yet how big it will be, it's really hard to predict right now.
In any chaos, from a software point of view, it is already certain that the TV will run with Android TV 10 as the operating system. We also expect Xiaomi to adopt its in-house developed content aggregation service under the name PatchWall.
Finally, although other features have not been confirmed, the smart TV will almost certainly be equipped with features such as Play Store, Chromecast Google Assistant and support for the main streaming apps, this just because the TV runs on Android TV.
