Xiaomi Launches the Stunningly Thin MiTV 2S
Just four months after launching MiTV 2, Xiaomi has launched its successor, the MiTV 2S at an event held in China. At 9.9 mm, the 4K TV is as thin as Mi4, which the company claims, is the thinnest in the MiTV series. MiTV 2S is available in two variants – regular and Theatre.
The MiTV 2S is a smart TV that runs on MIUI TV, a customised OS based on Android 5.0. The TV runs on a quad-core 1.4 Ghz Cortex A17 processor with 2GB of RAM and uses a MStar 6A928 chipset. Such configuration will allow the user to watch lossless 4K content, Xiaomi says. The MiTV 2S performs better than TVs from Sony, Sharp and Samsung, the company tweeted.
The MiTV has an HDMI 2.0 port which supports 4K 60Hz input and USB 3.0 port which has a transfer speed of 5 GBps. The MiTV 2S also has an internal memory of 8GB, which should allow you to store your favourite movies and TV shows in the TV itself.It also supports Wi-fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
As far as sound is concerned, Xiaomi developed its own sound system using the latest Dolby technology. The MiTV 2S comes with its own independent sound system, which the company claims is better than the Bose CineMate 1 SR, which has the reputation of being the best sound system in the market, till date.
On the design front, Xiaomi has spared no detail. The MiTV 2S sports a 9.9 mm thin aluminium frame and is available in five different colours – green, pink, white, blue and black. Even the plug has been stylishly framed, which the company says took 6 months and cost the company upwards of 500,000 Yuan.
The 48 inch MiTV 2S is available for 2,999 Yuan (Regular) and will cost 1,000 Yuan more for the Theatre edition.
