At today’s conference, Redmi also released the Redmi MAX 86” smart TV. This is the second super-large screen product in the Redmi MAX smart TV series, inheriting the excellent genes of the Redmi MAX smart TV. The price of Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV is much lower than the average price in the industry. At the same time, it aims at the pain point of super-large screen TV. We are talking about its size and that it cannot enter the elevator with packaging. This is the largest TV with packaging that can enter the elevator. The price of Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV is only 7,999 yuan ($1239). The pre-sale has already started.
In March last year, Redmi Smart TV MAX 98″ was released, which alone drove the sales of the entire super-large screen TV market to climb.
As the second masterpiece of the Redmi MAX smart TV series, the Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV was established at the beginning of the project. The entire Redmi product team was determined to work hard on packaging to make the delivery of super-large screen TVs easier.
After actual testing of 330 elevators in 58 cities, Redmi’s self-developed black technology “Elevator Does Not Block” came out. The “Redmi MAX 86” smart TV is the first super-large screen product to adopt this special-shaped design packaging solution.
A large screen should be a good screen
The industry does not have a clear definition of super-large-screen TVs. In terms of size, TVs larger than 82 inches can be collectively referred to as super-large-screen TVs. But Redmi believes that if a TV only has a screen size up to the standard but other functions shrink, it will be difficult to match the extreme name of the Redmi MAX smart TV. Therefore, the Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV starts from the original point and carefully refines this good screen.
The screen quality of the Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV is inherently outstanding. It uses an 86-inch 4K ultra-high-definition screen. The screen size is equivalent to four 43-inch TVs, the large size brings a shocking and immersive look and feel, making you feel like you are in a private place cinema.
The Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV has achieved DCI-P3 92% wide color gamut coverage, with 10bit professional color depth, 1.07 billion colors. It can accurately and delicately restore the beautiful light and shadow of nature, color accuracy reaches dE 2, which is comparable to professional level monitor.
The key factors affecting TV picture quality are hardware and algorithms. In hardware, the pros and cons of the backlight system often play a decisive role. Ordinary TVs only use general side-type or direct-type backlights, without adding partitioned light control technology, which makes the picture contrast have a natural bottleneck and cannot provide higher quality pictures. The Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV has a 90-zone dynamic backlight system, which can provide the required backlight intensity according to the specific content of the screen.
In terms of image quality algorithms, derived from this deeply customized “strong core”, the Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV can intelligently analyze, recognize, and tune the picture-AI dynamic scene recognition, and multiple scenes can be synchronized frame by 22 frames image quality algorithms, intelligently adjust color, sharpness, and contrast, and enhance image expression in all directions
The Redmi MAX 86″ smart TV also realizes full support for Dolby Vision (Dolby Vision) HDR, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG, which can be called an HDR certification grand slam. Dolby Vision has never appeared on a TV screen.

We can see that users’ enthusiasm for super-large-screen TVs continues to rise. But when projected on the market scale, the market share of super-large-screen TVs is still very low. Price is the biggest hindrance factor.
At present, the price of large-screen TVs with 82 inches or more on the market is generally above 15,000 yuan ($2324), and the high price discourages some potential consumers. Redmi adheres to the original intention of “popularizing high-end products” and combines the advantages of Xiaomi’s supply chain to introduce Redmi MAX 86″ smart TVs to the market at a price full of sincerity.
