Xiaomi launches Mi TV 3 and its first self-balancing scooter, the Ninebot mini
You need no longer wonder what Xiaomi has been teasing for the past couple of weeks. The Chinese electronics company has just unveiled its new Mi TV 3, Mi TV Bar and Ninebot mini self-balancing scooter.
Xiaomi is moving on up to a huge 60-inch 4K (3,840×2160) LG display based TV with the Mi TV 3. The Mi TV 3 runs Xiaomi’s new MIUI TV operating system, which allows for features such as voice powered search and remote control. The Mi TV 3 isn’t your normal smart TV though, its processor is actually housed inside the Mi TV Bar, which acts as a speaker system too. The system is a modular design, with the 60-inch LG 4K display and the Mi TV Bar able to operate independently.
This has the added benefit of working with any other HDMI TV too, so customers can upgrade the performance of their smart TV features without having to buy a whole new model. The Mi TV Bar is powered by an MStar 6A928 SoC, with a 1.4GHz quad-core Cortex-A17 CPU, Mali-T760 MP4 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of flash memory.
If you’re looking for a more novel piece of technology, Xiaomi has also announced a self-balancing scooter named the Ninebot mini. The scooter can travel up to 22km on a single charge, is IP54 rated to prevent damage from wet conditions and weighs just 12.8kg. Xiaomi backed Ninebot acquired US rival Segway back in April of this year.
The Mi TV 3 will retail for a very reasonable RMB 4999 ($790), while the Mi TV Bar can also be purchased separately for RMB 999 ($158). The Ninebot mini will come with a RMB 1,999 ($315) price tag. These new products will be available in China through Mi.com starting from November 3rd.
