Yesterday, Redmi held the 10X series smartphones’ new product launch conference and brought a variety of new products. Among them, we could find the much-talked Redmi Smart TV X series as well. The company announced three sizes. Interestingly, the price is closer to that of the Honor Smart Screen X1 series. At the press conference, Lu Weibing stated that when thinking of how to price your products, you should take into account how rivals behave. This statement caused a lot of discussions on the net. Last night, the price of the 55-inch version of the Honor Smart Screen X1 was announced, and the final price is only 1699 yuan ($237). So it’s logical Redmi will issue some announcements today. We mean the next step is to wait for Redmi to announce the price of the Redmi Smart TV X55.
On the morning of May 27, Redmi Smart TV officially announced the price of X55. The retail price is 2299 yuan ($321), but … the initial discount is 600 yuan ($84). Therefore, the final price is also 1699 yuan and you can get your hands on it at the same price as the Honor’s model. Moreover, we should admit the competition between Redmi and Honor has moved from the smartphone field to the TV market. And while these two are fiercely competing with each other, customers appear in a more beneficial situation. We mean perhaps now they can also buy more cost-effective products.
As a quick reminder, the Redmi Smart TV X55 uses a full-screen design with a screen-to-body ratio of 97%. It also uses an all-metal frame appearance. This product sports a 4K ultra-high-definition screen with a resolution of 3840×2160, 85% NTSC wide color gamut, and 60Hz MEMC Motion compensation technology. Under the hood, it carries a Novatek high-end TV chip. The latter comes with a quad-core A73 x 2 + A53 x 2 architecture high-performance CPU and Mali G51 GPU, supporting 4K ultra high-definition decoding in multiple formats.
