Chinese electronics company Xiaomi is best known for its smartphones, but the firm also makes a wide range of products, including air purifiers, smart power plugs, scooters, and rice cookers. Now, it's venturing into gaming monitors with the Mi Surface Display, a 34-inch curved screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 3,440 x 1,440-pixel resolution

Other features include a 144Hz refresh rate and support for AMD FreeSync, so you should get a relatively smooth and tear-free experience. In addition, it has a 4ms gray-to-gray response time and supposedly covers 121 per cent of the sRGB colour space.The panel is thought to be a 1500R-curved VA panel from Samsung.

The monitor's design is pretty sleek and modern, and the bezels are really thin – around 2mm – on three sides. Elsewhere, the stand supports height and tilt adjustments. Connections-wise, the monitor has dual HDMI 2.0 ports,  dual DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces and an audio out port. 

The Mi Surface Display is available in China now. Pre-order customers got it at ¥1,999, but it'll cost you ¥2,499 now. 

First launched in China when the monitor was announced in October of 2019, this gaming monitor is now available locally for just S$699 through Xiaomi's official flagship store on Lazada, complete with a 3-year local warranty as depicted on the web store.

This is part of Xiaomi's recent ecosystem product launch in the region where more phones and other devices were officially launched.
