News New Xiaomi Mijia Projector available for approx. $630

Last year, Xiaomi launched the Laser Projector, a short-distance beamer that astonished us. Now the $1900 beamer gets company. The Xiaomi Mijia Projector has now been announced, which costs significantly less than $630.

The little brother of the laser beamer

The luminaire used is an OSRAM P1W/A with 800 ANSI lumen brightness. The size of the projection is between 40 and 120 inches, i.e. a maximum of about three meters in the diagonal. The resolution is Full HD, whereby as already with the Mi Laser Projector 4K videos can be processed and played back as Full HD.

In addition, this beamer will also be equipped with the MIUI TV operating system. However, this will once again only support the Chinese language. But you will probably find a way to change to English again, at least in part. Boxes, headphones and input devices (mouse and keyboard) can be connected via Bluetooth 4.1.

Xiaomi Mijia Projector Keystone correction
The beamer can be placed offset by up to 45° to the screen.

A keystone correction of up to 45° vertical and horizontal allows a very free placement of the beamer. This does not quite reach the comfort of the short-distance beamer, but gives you some freedom when setting up your home cinema. The Xiaomi Mijia Projector can also be mounted upside down under the ceiling.

For the sound provide two 10W speakers inside. The volume of the beamer itself through the fan should be quite quiet at 26 dB.

Comparison to short distance beamer

In direct comparison with the Laser Projector, the Mijia beamer naturally draws the shorter straw, which is already expressed by the less than half as high price. No laser technology is used here, the brightness is significantly lower at 800 compared to 5000 lumens. They do not differ in resolution and operating system, but the new beamer has fewer connections (only an HDMI and USB port).

But it is smaller, lighter and thanks to the generous Keystone correction not bound to a fixed place in front of the screen.

Price and availability of Mijia Projector

The price for which the beamer is listed at Youpin is 3999 RMB, the equivalent of about $630. If we assume a price increase similar to the last projector, the Mijia Projector should be available here at the end for $700.
