There are already reports of Huawei and Honor working on 8K TV in the market. They are expected to introduce these TVs in the market sometime soon. This is the first time we are seeing details of 8K becoming part of Xiaomi’s Mi TV lineup. There is no word on specifics and the image could well be a placeholder and not development of a serious product. Those details remain unclear at this moment. The image has come into light just a few days ahead of Xiaomi’s launch of a new 4K Smart TV in India.

With OnePlus preparing to launch a 55-inch 4K QLED TV in India, Xiaomi might be preparing its rival as well. Samsung, Sony and LG currently sell 8K TVs in the market. For Xiaomi, 8K will be a logical upgrade over current lineup of 4K TVs offered by the company. We will need to see whether Xiaomi officially confirms work on 8K TV as a premium offering. The TV segment has become as competitive the smartphone market and it should not be a surprise if Xiaomi aims to beat rivals with an affordable 8K premium TV.
