A month ago, we could finally confirm that TVs sold by Xiaomi in India had DVB-T2, in the country, they use the same DVB-T standard that we use in Europe, while in China, they use the DMTB. Therefore, a TV purchased in India works perfectly in Spain, but its Smart TV may not yet be adapted to our country.
Xiaomi has launched three new models of smart TVs in the range My TV 4X, whose specifications are even better than those of previous models. We have three models of 65, 50 and 43 inches, with an ultra-thin frame design of only 11 mm and an aluminum frame instead of plastic. These models add to the 4 inches of 55 inches already sold.
The screen can reproduce up to 88% of the NTSC color spectrum, in addition to having the Bright image engine, a technology that allows the company to improve brightness, contrast and saturation. Xiaomi has also added its own image smoothing technology called Reality Flow Chip, which interpolates content from 24 FPS to 60 FPS.
TVs are also compatible with the content on HDR and they have 10-bit panels, although we do not know if it's true HDR or if the panels have a local dimming. They have four speakers, two of which are dedicated to treble and bass, with a power of 10 x 2 watts and compatible with DTS and Dolby Audio formats.
Patchwall is also integrated in this case which, although based on Android, is still not Android TV as such. We find applications such as Amazon Prime, Google Assistant or Netflix, which is an important novelty because the previous models were not compatible with Netflix when it was launched. Patchwall 2.0 is based on Android 9 Pie and supports Chromecast.
All models feature a 4K HDR 10-bit display, a quad-core processor, WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0. The prices are as follows:
They will be on sale on September 29th.
In addition to these models, they also announced a 40-inch Mi TV 4A for a tight price of 17,999 rupees, about 228 euros. This model has a Full HD panel and plastic finishes, but it has the same 20W speakers and Patchwall 2.0 as Smart TV.
Finally, they announced a new sound bar, based on the previous model with 8 speakers. It has improved the bass, a black finish and the novelty that now includes the control of the operation of the speaker. Its price is 4,999 rupees, about 63 euros to change.
We now have to talk about a new gadget that currently remains in China, although we can still use import shops or "pray" to be incorporated into the official catalog of products sold in Spain. We are talking about Xiaomi Bluetooth Key Finder, a smart keychain to find lost keys.
The price during the crowdfunding phase is 99 yuan, just over 12 euros, for a package with three keychain units. This supports anti-loss memory, bidirectional mutual search, positioning, and collaborative search mode. Its design is really compact and uses Bluetooth technology to work, in addition to a high-powered ringtone.
With its small dimensions, it works perfectly key ringbut it can also be put in the wallet or in the pocket of a backpack. To activate it, simply open the application on the smartphone and press a button. The device starts to vibrate at maximum power so we can find it easily.
With bidirectional search, we can also press the device button to find the mobile who has the application installed. Its dimensions are 35 x 35 x 6 mm and it has a CR2032 battery that we can easily get. Although they do not clarify their autonomy, they recognize that it lasts a very long time.

If you have a robot vacuum cleaner Xiaomior if you have tried one, you will know that it has a speaker to tell us the different modes that we have activated and other information. The speakers are relatively bad because they are only used for vacuuming to communicate with us through the female voice used by the assistant. However, these speakers, like any other, can play music if they are properly modified.
Spotify is the most used streaming music platform, thanks to its algorithm of recommendations for the discovery of new music. In addition, we can listen to the platform's music on a wide variety of devices, including smart speakers, for which we have the ability to remotely control them by voice or voice control.
In addition to speakers, mobile phones or PCs, Spotify can also work with a Xiaomi vacuum cleaner. For this, a user has used Raspoter, which allows you to run the application in the vacuum cleaner software. The model used is the first robot vacuum launched by Xiaomi. The result is as you can see in the following video:
As for the quality of the speakers, it is as we said: it sounds a little louder than a mobile, but with a much better quality. However, this allows you to listen music throughout the house, including areas where you do not have speakers nearby, and without having to make the mobile that makes this sound. It can also be worth making funny jokes to the family.
The sound, however, mingles with the sound that the vacuum cleaner makes when it is running and it is necessary to increase the volume to the maximum in order to start hearing it with relative clarity.
To create this configuration, it is necessary to have SSH access to the main directory of the vacuum cleaner and install it. Curl and Raspoter. Then, it is necessary to create a .config file in Raspbien install Librespot, which is responsible for activating the Spotify Distribution feature whenever the vacuum cleaner is turned on. We can follow The whole process step by step here.
Xiaomi already had a Qi Wireless Charging Battery of 10,000 mAh, which was announced last February. However, this model Youth (or Lite) is improving in some respects, although it is a little worse for others to offset this price reduction. If the first model costs 149 yuan (19 euros), it falls to 129 yuan (16.5 euros).
On the physical side, we find practically the same design, but the new battery is smaller. The original model was 147.9 x 71.6 x 18.4 mm, while the new model measured 147.9 x 70.6 x 16.6 mm, being thinner and slightly narrower. The weight of this new model is only 230 grams.
The advertised capacity is 10,000 mAh. The nominal capacity of the previous battery was 6000 mAh, but this model drops to 5800 mAh. The amperage also drops from 3 A to 2.4 A. In total we have a load of up to 18 watts for cable, which is the fast cable that currently loads many cables. The the wireless charge is 10 watts, which is the same speed offered by a 5V and 2A charger that we all have at home. With wireless charging, you can charge a Mi 9 twice (it has a battery of 3300 mAh) or an iPhone XS at two and a half loads. The Mi 9 can be charged in 2 hours, while the iPhone takes 3 hours and 20 minutes to charge.
Connectivity also remains the same, with. However, in the previous battery, the USB C could also serve as an output, which is lost with this new model, where USB A is the output and USB C is the input. Thus, the input parameters are 5 V / 3 A, 9 V / 2 A, 12 V / 1.5 A. The output is 5 V 2.4 A, 9 V 2 A or 12 V 1.5 AT .
As we have said, the new model is worth 129 yuan, or about 16.5 euros, with a nice saving compared to the base model to have a small difference in load capacity and lose the output and l 39; C. Anyway, if you did not have a USB C male to male port, you will probably use the USB A port to charge. In addition, it is still possible to charge two phones at once: one with the cable and the other with the wireless charging.
The battery will be on sale in China from September 12 in two black and white versions, and will include a short USB C cable. We expect that one of these two models will eventually arrive in Spain a day, although they can still easily buy in China. The previous model can be found in online stores for 28 euros, so it should cost around 25 euros.
