The TV sports a 40-inch full HD LED panel, 1.1GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 processor, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It runs on Android 4.4-based MIUI TV OS and will be getting the Android 5.0 update in the coming months.
The 40-inch Mi TV 2 can be used as a normal HDTV, a giant Android-powered screen or an Android gaming console. It also features a full format media player with H.265 10-bit hardware decoding support.
The company has stated that it will be investing $1 billion in content creation for the TV and is also partnering with several China-based content providers to build a massive entertainment library.
