Mi TV 2

Xiaomi launched its ridiculously affordable Mi TV 2 last May in China for the equivalent of $640, and the manufacturer is set to unveil a newer model later this month. Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun shared an image on social networking website Weibo that a new Mi TV will be announced on March 24.


This time around, it looks like Xiaomi may launch two models of the Mi TV, a smaller-sized TV with a full-HD display and a larger variant with a 4K screen. While the vendor did not officially confirm that there will be two models, Xiaomi is running a poll on the dedicated landing page for the event, asking users whether they think full-HD is practical, or whether they'd like to see 4K.

Xiaomi's Mi TV models offer incredible hardware for the price — with the current-gen Mi TV 2 coming with a 49-inch 4K display, quad-core MediaTek MStar 6A918 CPU, Mali-450 MP4 GPU, 2GB RAM, 8GB storage,microSD card slot and the vendor's MIUI ROM — all in a package that has a thickness of just 15.5mm.

However, one of the major drawbacks has been availability, with the TV available exclusively in China. That is set to change later this year, as Xiaomi has announced that it will be launching the Mi TV in India. Specific launch details were not revealed, although it is likely we'll hear more about the vendor's plans next week during the launch of the next-generation Mi TV.
