In short: Xiaomi’s Redmi Curved Monitor is priced at 1,299 Yuan, or just over $200, and is an attractively priced bundle considering the built-in features. It’s not extreme by any means, but it packs decent specs, including an immersive 1800R curved panel, high refresh rate, and HDMI 2.1. It will go on sale in China later this week.
There are quite a few interesting things to note about Xiaomi’s latest (and first) curved Redmi monitor. Aside from the low price, this ultra-wide gaming monitor has a fairly sleek and minimalist look, with no extreme angles, design elements, or RGB lighting in the body.
In terms of specifications, this 30-inch Redmi monitor features an ultra-wide display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, narrow bezels, 1800R curvature, 2560 x 1080 pixels resolution, and a fast 200Hz refresh rate. The 8-bit panel uses VA technology with a 4ms GTG response time, 300 nits peak brightness, and 126 percent sRGB coverage.
Chinese monitor list page mentions a 3000:1 contrast ratio (obviously no HDR info) and AMD FreeSync Premium support for tear-free, low-latency gaming. It’s also reasonably equipped in terms of connectivity, including 2 HDMI ports (1 x 2.1 and 1 x 1.4), DisplayPort 1.2, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Redmi Curved Monitor will go on sale in China on April 8th. It is currently unknown if Xiaomi is planning an international launch.
