Previous variants & the recent evolution of TV models under the MI brand

Xiaomi Corporation marked its presence in the Indian TV market by introducing an MI TV series at the start of 2018. Since then, the company is trying hard to expand its business in this domain by pushing various models under different brand titles. Although the whole company philosophy is based on budget and value for money products, Now Xiaomi is trying to categorize budget-friendly & more premium product ranges. With the launch of MI QLED TV in 2020 & now the Redmi X-series, it is evident that the Redmi brand name will be associated with cost-effective products, while MI branding is for more premium ones.

The newly launched Redmi Smart TV X Series X65, X55, X50 has many features similar to the MI QLED TV 4k. However, there are still some additions & subtractions here. In this Redmi Smart TV X Series X65, X55, X50 Review, Let’s find out what they are.

The display quality of the Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65)

Redmi Smart TV X Series comes in three different screen size variants of 50 inch, 55 inches, and 65-inch display. All of these variants have 4k resolution and HDR support. The 4K video play quality is excellent in the Redmi X series. But suppose you upscale a lower resolution input to a massive screen. In that case, It is obviously not going to perform that well. The color saturation level in these TV models is comparatively moderate compared to the other premium brands of this price segment.

Display resolution of Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65)

The Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65) comes with a 4k resolution equivalent to 3840 x 2160 pixels.

Picture enhancing systems & supports

There are four leading picture-enhancing technologies in the Redmi X series available at your disposal. In the next few steps, we will discuss everything about these technologies in detail.

One more thing to note here is that the Redmi X-series has Wide Colour Gamut NTSC 85% (typ) and DCI-P3 92% (typ). It is a color quality index that enhances the 4K experience.

Vivid picture Engine in Redmi Smart TV X series

The Vivid picture Engine is an in-house technology of MI for properly controlling and enchaining the performance of picture color quality.

Dolby Vision

Dolby’s vision is a delivery format of video. It supports both high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut at all stages, from content creation and production to transmission and playback. Dolby Vision can encode mastering display colorimetry information using static metadata (SMPTE ST 2086) and dynamic metadata (SMPTE ST 2094-10, Dolby format) for each scene.

In simple words, we can use the Dolby vision data available in content to enhance the picture quality experience.

dollby vision

As far as this Redmi X series Televisions are concerned, it has good quality hardware that is good enough to play Dolby Vision content. Overall, it’s not just a fancy certificate like used in some other products and does make a difference in the real-world viewing experience.

HDR 10+

It is another feature similar to the Dolby vision. HDR 10+ is dynamic metadata present in any video, determining the difference between the darkest and the lightest portion present in a scene. It helps make the picture or video quality look more closely to what we see with our naked eyes in the real world.

HLG in Redmi Smart TV X series

Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) is a backward-compatible high dynamic range feature. This format is compatible with both SDR and HDR displays. This feature especially helps to improve the visual quality in broadcasted content.

Reality Flow feature

Reality Flow is something that is most commonly known as MEMC. It is a feature that helps in improving the high-motion visual experience. The Reality flow adds frames between the existing two frames available in the original content to make the movement smoother and more apparent.

Although it’s a great & handy feature while playing video games, in times like watching a movie something similar, it may degrade the overall experience.

Sound Quality of Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65)

Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65) comes equipped with 30 watts down-firing speakers. It is very loud and is more than sufficient for a TV. There is not much to say in it. The overall quality is excellent, and for typical usage, you will not even need to bump the sound above 50 to 60 percent. Even for listening to music, 80 to 90 percent is more than enough.

Everything being said, you will not get the sound effect similar to an expensive soundbar or home theatre through the stock speakers. So, if you want to create a theatre or a club-level sound experience, you will have to connect an external sound system.

This TV has all the sound codec available for any connected sound system to play music and sound with Dolby audio, DTS virtual: X & Dolby atmos quality.

Sound enhancing systems & supports in Redmi Smart TV X Series

Most of the time, we get trapped by the fancy names in the audio department of Television. Most of us don’t exactly know what their actual functions are. So, to make everything easy, all the available codec in this TV are briefly explained below.

Dolby Audio

It’s the basic standard sound quality available in any premium quality content. Dolby Audio helps the speakers to produce a stereo sound & surround sound effect, making the user feel that the sound is coming from different directions.

DTS Virtual: X in Redmi Smart TV X series

DTS Virtual: X is one of the premium sound data feature available in this Redmi X Series that helps in creating a 3D effect in the sound. It gives a sense of sound coming from different directions, either from left, right, and amazingly from up or down. This codec does not even need the celling firing speakers to create the effect.

Dolby Atmos

Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65) boasts a Dolby Atmos sound codec which expands the creative palette for artists and creators. Instruments and vocals can be isolated and articulated with incredible clarity through this feature. The use of multi-dimensional space makes listeners feel like they’ve stepped inside the song. It is one of the most advanced audio codec available in the market.

Build quality & looks of Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65)

The Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65) has a plastic body and slim look. The lower half of the body is thicker than the upper half due to the placement of the mounting and input ports. The front is not entirely bezel-less and thin bezels from all sides. The wall mount is perfect & stable, but we can’t say the same for the table stand that it comes with.

Operating System of Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65)

Redmi Smart TV X Series comes with an android 10 OS and has customized PatchWall UI. Android 10 is the latest android version, and it certainly delivers the most smooth user experience.

PatchWall is a user interface developed by MI that focuses on delivering the most appropriate & aggregated suggestions based on your watch pattern, right at the homepage. It makes it easier to switch between any OTT platforms to any satellite broadcasting channel if you are using a setup box. Other than that, it also has a dedicated tab for kids and a parental control for setting up limits in the kids’ mode.

The PatchWall interface facilitates a direct selection of content by selecting a language. Moreover, the TV models of the X Series have MI home App support which helps it connect it with other home appliances for smart home integration through AI like Alexa & google assistant.

The final say is that it might not be the best UI available in the market, but it is definitely one of them. You may experience a lag during very heavy multitasking; otherwise, there won’t be an issue for a lower to medium level usage.

RAM, internal Memory & Processor Review of Redmi Smart TV X Series

Redmi Smart TV X Series comes with Quad-core A55 CPU with Mali G52 MP2, and It comes with 2 GB RAM with 16 GB of storage capacity.

While using the Television, we have felt that it is an excellent choice for a TV. But, if you are expecting to play intense games without any problem, it might disappoint you. However, you can easily play any TV games available in the store, without any problem. But you can’t use this sort of hardware for regular and intensive gaming purposes.

Connectivity options in Redmi Smart TV X Series (X50, X55, X65)

The Redmi TV offers several connectivity options and that too in the most convenient way possible. It has an L-shaped pattern for all the essential ports on the left side of the unit. This arrangement makes the ports easily accessible even when the TV is wall mounted.

One of the main highlights of this Redmi X series is its ALLM (auto low latency mode) which helps to lower the response time and thus provides a fast command execution for any input. It significantly enhances the gaming experience when you use external hardware for input, requiring a prompt response.

Another remarkable connectivity feature is its eARC HDMI port, enabling you to transmit the original full-resolution audio signal through an HDMI cable and reproduce the best possible sound without compromise.

Redmi Smart TV X50 Price, Review & Final verdict

The Redmi Smart TV X50 is the best option to buy among all the three models of this series. As all the features remain the same among different screen sizes, it’s the Best value-for-money product of the Redmi Smart TV X Series. With a price range starting from ₹ 33,999, it is also the most affordable X-series television by Redmi. That’s the reason the X50 is our pick for the best Redmi Smart TV X Series model.

Redmi Smart TV X55 Price, Review & Final verdict

The mid-sized option among the Redmi Smart TV X Series is the X55. It comes with a 55 inch 4k screen & is equipped with all the features of the X series. Although the screen size is 5inches more than the X50, still spending ₹ 6,000 more just for this doesn’t make much sense. The size difference is hardly noticeable, and you should buy the X55 only if the exact sizes fit your wall & you won’t mind spending a few thousand bucks more just for the screen size.

Redmi Smart TV X65 Price, Review & Final verdict

The Redmi Smart TV X65 is the biggest model among the three, with a screen size measuring a massive 65 inches. But, with an increase in screen size comes a hefty price tag adding a staggering ₹14,000 to the base variant, i.e., X50. But, if you have a room & sitting arrangement big enough to accommodate such a big screen, then you can surely go for it without any second thoughts.
