The new Xiaomi television has incredible features for the current price of € 1,599, promotional launch value. Among its highlights are the QLED screen with 4K resolution and the ability to play content with a refresh rate up to 120 Hz.

During the product presentation last February, Xiaomi claimed to have been inspired by the Samsung QLED Q80T television with a recommended retail price of € 2 199, while its alternative costs a fraction of that amount. But there is a catch.

The Xiaomi Mi TV Q1 4K is capable of playing content in 4K, or at 120 Hz

The first batch of Xiaomi Mi QLED TV Q1 75 televisions was sold in UK for 999 €, an incredibly low price. Unfortunately, only 20 units were available for our country with this value, of which we tried to acquire one, without success.

In less than 60 seconds the Xiaomi Smart TV lot disappeared from the website, which prevented us from having access to a model. However, as the publication also advances PC Guide, after all, this incredible 4K TV doesn’t do 120 Hz when you’d expect it.

That is, it either plays content in 4K resolution (Ultra-HD- 3840 x 2160 pixels), or it plays content with a high refresh rate up to 120 Hz. It does not do both at the same time as you would expect for advertising material and product listings.

It’s not the perfect PS5 TV if you want to take advantage of maximum resolution and refresh rate at the same time.

In fact, it is not the ideal Smart TV for any of the new generation consoles if you want to take advantage of the Ultra-HD resolution and refresh rate of the content up to 120 Hz.

The inconvenient truth – Smart TV is not ideal for PS5 or XBX

Among the technical characteristics we highlight the screen with QLED technology, capable of reproducing 95% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum. Incidentally, it is one of the few Smart TV on the market with the certification HDR10 + and Dolby Vision, ensuring greater color richness and dynamic range for a more balanced and realistic image.

Your “heart” is the processor MT9611 from MediaTek, the largest manufacturer of television processors. This SoC has four processing cores with a maximum frequency of 1.5 GHz, Cortex A55, supported by the Mali G52 printing company.

This is the same processor – MT9611 – that Xiaomi uses on the 65-inch model, also with 4K resolution, the Smart TV MI LED TV 4S 55. This may be the main conditioning factor of the Xiaomi Mi TV Q1 4K.

The technical sheet also includes 2 GB RAM memory and 32 GB of storage. It is served by 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, 2 USB ports and 1 USB 2.1 port that would make it ideal for connecting to PS5 or the new generation of Xbox consoles.

We also point out the support for MEMC technology, 178º viewing angle, low latency mode (ALLM) and Android 10 operating system from Google. It also supports Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistants and Google Assistant.

Finally, the sound component is ensured by a system consisting of 6 speakers for a combined power of 30 W. Not forgetting the Wi-Fi connection, as well as Bluetooth 5.1 and Ethernet port for more connectivity options.

Xiaomi is being incorrect in the way it presents the Mi TV Q1 4K

It was based on international reviews (those that can really be called such) that this discrepancy was detected. See above the exposition of youtuber David Nogueira on 4K resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate.

The consumer is led to think that he will be able to enjoy content in 4K resolution with the maximum refresh rate at 120 Hz, but no. You will have to choose one of the two, thus preventing you from taking full advantage of the PS5 or XBX consoles.
