In addition to announcing a slew of Mi 11 smartphones, Xiaomi lifts the veil on a compact projector with a nice technical sheet. Full HD, HDR10, Android TV, Chromecast, DTS-HD, Dolby Audio … the Xiaomi Mi Smart Projector 2 Pro is very complete.
Xiaomi is not at its video projector, we have already discovered the Mi Smart Projector for example but also the Mi Laser (4K). This time, we discover the second iteration of the Mi Smart Projector which adopts a completely new design: it is the Mi Smart Projector 2 Pro.
A compact and portable video projector
The Mi Smart Projector 2 Pro is not a portable video projector, but it is transportable thanks to its compact size (215 x 201 x 143 mm for 3.7 kg). He uses a 0.47 ″ DMD chip with a Full HD image via an LED light source with an output of 1300 lumens. This is already a big development with twice the brightness of the previous model. This now allows him to support the HDR10.
Its optical unit does not have a zoom; the focal length is fixed and the sharpness is adjusted with an electric focus. It is therefore the position of the device that will determine the size of your image. So you can have a picture from 60 to 120 inches depending on your room configuration.
It also has built-in 2 x 10 Watt speakers with Support for DTS-HD and Dolby Audio, which should make it an additional solution on the move to listen to music in good conditions.
What we will also appreciate is the management ofAndroid TV (Android 9.0) with the Play Store, so you don’t have to worry about getting the most popular apps. This also gives access to the function Chromecast to project the contents of your smartphone through the video projector. Without forgetting, Google Assistant which will be accessible from the remote control directly.
This projector provides features to adapt the projected image according to its tilt relative to the wall. This allows for a straight and well-positioned image thanks to an automatic omnidirectional correction.
Among the connectors on the back, there are 2 HDMI .0 (including one with ARC), 1 full-format USB 2.0, 1 audio jack output, 1 AV input, 1 S / PDIF optical output and 1 Ethernet port to complete the Wi-Fi access.
The Mi Smart Projector 2 Pro will be available from 999 euros including tax in France, we do not yet know the date of its availability. It will obviously be possible to import it from other markets, but it’s still a risk: you won’t have local customer support and you might end up with a different OS if you imported a product from the Chinese market.
