Xiaomi‘s Redmi brand has got a new product under its sleeves. The product is a display monitor which is the first the company is announcing since the launch of the Redmi 1A in May last year as the brand’s first monitor.
The new Redmi monitor packs a 27-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080p. The display carries a price tag of 799 yuan ($123), higher than the 499 yuan (~$77) price tag of the Redmi 1A. The monitor is expected to officially go on sale on March 8 via Xiaomi Mall and Jingdong.
In terms of appearance, the 27-inch Redmi monitor continues the classic three-micro-edge design, and there is no unnecessary protrusion on the back of the screen. Xiaomi says the thinnest part of the display is only 7.5mm.
In terms of configuration, the display uses a 27-inch screen with an FHD resolution of 1920x1080p. It also supports a maximum refresh rate of 75Hz. Thanks to the IPS technology, the color display is more transparent and pure, and it has a higher light transmittance, and the viewing angle is as high as 178 degrees.
Further, the Redmi display utilizes an aspect ratio of 16:9, a brightness of 300cd/m² (TYP), a contrast ratio of 1000:1 (TYP), and a 100% sRGB wide color gamut.
Not only that, Redmi’s new display comes with a low blue light mode which won’t cause eye fatigue even if you stare at the screen for too long. Thus, it can be used in offices and by games. We doubt if too many gamers will find this monitor interesting considering the low refresh rate.
In addition, the 27-inch Redmi display supports different angle adjustments and uses five-way buttons to switch the machine, up and down, left and right directions. At the same time, it supports HDMI, VGA, and other interfaces.
