The UHD display is from Samsung and the TV is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core MStar 6A928 chipset. Xiaomi says,”Mi TV 2S is top of the range among 4K TVs”.
At an event held in Beijing, Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun unveiled Mi TV 2S for a price of RMB2999 (US$483). He also announced Mi TV 2S (Theatre Edition) which comes with an independent sound system for RMB3999 (US$644). Both devices will be available through Mi.com in China starting July 28.

Lei Jun also announced the Mi Water Purifier that goes on sale for RMB1299 (US$209). Mi Water Purifier uses reverse osmosis technology and employs fourstep RO filtration. Reverse osmosis is a technique in which pressure is applied through a RO membrane to separate purified water from tap water. In Mi Water Purifier, tap water goes through a quality PP cotton filter, an activated coconut carbon filter, Dow/GE reverse osmosis membranes, and another activated coconut carbon filter (for better-tasting water), before finally resulting in clean purified water.
The biggest advantage of Mi Water Purifier is its higher water flow rate thanks to a 400-gallon high flow RO filter and an optimized water purification path. Mi Water Purifier can purify up to 76 barrels of water per day. Mi Water Purifier is also a smart device which can be monitored via the Mi Home app. The app will allow users to monitor real-time filter effectiveness and even remind users to change filters, which can be purchased directly from within the app.
