Rising Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has launched a new Android-powered 40-inch smart TV at a very affordable price.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 2 is available for the bargain price of $320, and boasts a 1080p Sharp LED display with 5000:1 contrast ratio, Cortex-A9 quad-core 1.45GHz CPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of flash storage and a MIUI TV OS running through Android 4.4 KitKat.
The TV is capable of playing H.265, H.264, MPEG4, REAL, RM, FLV, MOV, AVI, MKV, TS, and MP4 formats.
The thin display – 14.5mm, front to back – also doubles as an Android gaming console.
With Xiaomi is making strides into the US and European markets this year, it seems likely that this impressive (and impressively cheap) television will be available in the West very soon.
