Xiaomi Enters Gaming Monitor Market


With the launch of the Mi Surface Display and Mi Display, Xiaomi has now officially entered the gaming monitor market. The two displays were recently announced in China and, like any other Xiaomi device, are characteristic of offering great bang-for-buck.

The Mi Surface Display is a 34-inch curved monitor with an aspect ratio of 21:9. The display has a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels (2K) and a refresh rate of 144Hz with support for AMD FreeSync. In terms of picture quality, the display covers 121% of the sRGB color gamut. The display comes with a stand that is magnetically attached and will allow users to change the height and rotate the display. The display is priced at CNY 2,499 (~INR 25,000) and is available for pre-order in China. At this price, the Xiaomi Mi Surface Display is the most affordable one yet when compared to mainstream brands like Samsung, HP, and Acer that make curved gaming monitors too.

The Mi Display, on the other hand, is a regular monitor with a FullHD LED panel with a viewing angle of up to 178-degrees. The display measures in at 23.8 inches and has minimal bezels. It also comes with a standard bracket which isn’t as adjustable as the one that comes with the Surface Display. Only the viewing angles can be adjusted on this one. The Mi Display is priced at CNY 699 (~INR 7,000).

Both gaming displays are up for pre-order in China and will go on sale from October 21. At the time of writing, there’s no word on the availability of these monitors outside China. If priced as competitively, the Mi Surface Display can especially generate a lot of interest amongst gaming communities in markets like Europe and India where Xiaomi has a presence (given that they launch in the first place).
