Xiaomi is all set to launch its latest smart TV, the Mi TV 5 series, for the Chinese market tomorrow, 5 November, at an event in China.

As is the case with most Xiaomi launches, the details of the Mi TV 5 are already leaking in a drip-feed manner over the internet. Most of these leaks are courtesy Xiaomi itself. According to the latest report from GizmoChina, the Mi TV 5 will be coming with a bezel that is just 1.8 mm thick, as compared to the 3.4 mm seen on the Mi TV 4. This is a seriously thin bezel for a smart TV. In addition to that, Xiaomi claims that the TV will have a body thickness of just 5.9 mm.

The Mi TV 5 is also expected to come with an integrated bending frame, backplate without screws. Apart from this, we know that the Mi TV 5 is expected to come with a 12 nm T972 chipset which can support up to 8K video recording. Alongside this CPU, you are expected to get 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage. It will most likely be sporting a 4K QLED panel, made by Samsung. Mi TV 4 series comes with LED panels made by either Samsung or LG. So it's safe to assume that the Mi TV 5 series will be competing with the quantum dot LED panel sporting OnePlus TV.

There is no mention of when the Mi TV 5 series will make it to India. But going by the response that the Mi TV 4 lineup has received in India, it would be safe to assume that the Mi TV 5 series could also be coming to India.
