A little surprisingly, Xiaomi has included in its price list, initially offering it on the market through its local crowdfunding, the first curved gaming monitor of the Redmi sub-brand, not surprisingly called “Redmi Curved Display”.
After paying attention to the global market of various smartphones, Redmi, under the low cost brand of Xiaomi, has announced, for now in the Chinese domestic market, through the proprietary crowdfunding Youpin, its first curved gaming monitor which, obviously accessible in terms of price list, responds to the eloquent denomination of Redmi Curved Display.
The Redmi Curved Display has a front with optimized bezels on 3 of the 4 sides of the front perimeter: behind, the painting allows for a delicate texture. The stand, an alternative to the VESA connection for wall mounting, allows it to be placed on a flat surface, benefiting, thanks to the hole for cable management, from height adjustment. From a “substantial” point of view, the newcomer proposes a 30-inch vertically aligned (VA) LED panel, with a resolution of 2560 × 1080 pixels according to an aspect ratio of 21: 9.
As mentioned, it is a curved monitor (1800R): gaming lovers will appreciate the perfect synchronization with the “beats” of the graphics cards thanks to the support for the AMD FreeSync Premium and the refresh rate up to 200 Hz, while those who are also very attentive to the rendering of the images, therefore also the graphics, can only enjoy the excellent coverage (126%) on the sRGB color range. Other very indicative values of the quality of the graphic rendering are represented by the 300 nits of brightness, by the 3000: 1 as a contrast value, and by the 8-bit color depth.
Also implemented some measures to limit visual stress during long sessions of use (TÜV Rheinland certification against blue light, CC dimming), the Redmi Curved Display does not miss several ports, including the 3.5 mm jack for headphones, the interface for direct current power supply, a Display Port 1.2 (up to 200 Hz), an HDMI 2.1 (with support, up to 180 Hz, the TMDS protocol to obtain images without the snow effect, noise or static lines), and an HDMI 1.4.
Currently, the Redmi Curved Display, accompanied by a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty, is priced at 1,499 yuan (213 euros) but, as a promo for the launch scheduled for April 8, it will be possible to buy it at 1,299 yuan (175 euros), making it perhaps the most accessible curved monitor for young people.
