March 27, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

After making a name of its own in the smartphone world, Xiaomi is following the likes of bigger names now. We have witnessed the step-down of Xiaomi into the electronic device range, which also includes their Android range of TVs that dropped many a jaw.

And now, much before closing in on the outside world with their TV range, Xiaomi has unveiled a new edition of their TV range called Mi TV2, in China.

But Xiaomi hasn’t gone for further upgrades here; in fact they have kept up with the expectation of yielding a handy piece that comes at an affordable range.

MiTV 2 is a compact and cheap one too, complying with their usual pricing norms.

The 40-inch TV features a Full HD resolution, dropping the standards from the 4K resolution in its predecessor. The performance is powered by a quad-core MStar 6A908 Cortex-A9 processor. The visuals will be powered by the Mali0450 MP4 GPU.

And, to rope in the full-functionality of an Android system, the MiTV is packed with a RAM of 1.5GB, which comes along with a storage space of 8GB.

And all these come at a handy price of $322, which is a price-tag heavily scaled down from their first TV effort.

MiTV will be loaded with Android 4.4 OS, but an upgrade to Android 5.0 may not be far-stretched. The device will also offer support for Android games, making it to function as an Android game console as well.

Xiaomi hasn’t yet revealed whether the device would be brought away from its home market.

And as within China, the MiTV can be expected to make its opening sale by March 31. They would also be launching a bigger 49-inch version, priced at $670.
