Xiaomi Redmi Smart TV MAX 98 inch – 19,999 Yuan from the Mi.
(approximately $ 2,800 / £ 2,200 / AU $ 4,000)
This big absurd display from Xiaomi is actually quite reasonable, due to its size. The screen is as large as a double bed, with visible dimensions of 2190 x 1255mm. It is only available in China for now, but see this space.View Deal
Meet Redmi Smart TV MAX, An 98-inch TV that comes with its own white glove VIP installation service. Available at 19,999 Yuan (i.e. around US $ 2,800, £ 2,200, AU $ 4,000), this absurd massive display isn’t actually that expensive.
The next 98 inch cheap display on the market is s ViewSonic IFP9850, a touchscreen monitor that costs about three times more.
The bad news is that you can’t actually buy the Redmi Smart TV MAX until you live in China. However, given the exceptional popularity of this 98-inch handset, we wouldn’t be surprised if Xiaomi starts selling it in other countries as well.
The TV is roughly equivalent in size to four 50-inch screens placed side by side – about the same proportions as a double bed. The visible dimensions of the screen are 2190 x 1255mm whopping and the set probably weighs over 100kg, which makes it problematic to install.
Picture wise, it’s a 4K display with (unsurprisingly) the worst pixel density on the market (45 ppi). It covers 85% of the NTSC color space, supported by 192 local dimming areas with direct LED lighting, 60Hz Motion and Compensation Estimation and other quality tweaking technologies.
It has four speakers in total (plus Dolby and DTS decoding), three HDMI ports only, SPDIF output and a built-in Android box that runs on an 8-core processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage.
