Following the launch of the world’s first 64MP camera smartphone, Redmi also unwrapped its first-ever smart TV in China today. It would be recalled that the Honor’s recent 50-inch model is powered by its own Harmony OS will retail for the same price in the country.
As earlier teased, the Redmi TV features a massive 70-inch 4K HDR display, which the Chinese giant boasted of being 60% larger than its 55-inch TV panel. As seen in the images below that Redmi TV has minimal bezels all-around, except for a slightly thicker bottom bezel with the branding. There’s no camera like the Honor Vision TV here.
