BEIJING, 16 July 2015 – Leading Internet company Xiaomi announced today the launch of Mi TV 2S, a premium 48-inch 4K TV that is a work of art, measuring only 9.9mm at its thinnest.

Lei Jun said: “We want Mi TV 2S to be the first TV that young adults buy. Xiaomi’s TV team spent one year developing Mi TV 2S, working with global industry-leading suppliers, the best materials, and top-of-the-line technology to produce a gorgeous TV with amazing performance.”

Key specifications of Mi TV 2S include:

  • MStar 6A928 chipset
    • Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex A-17
    • Mali-760 GPU
    • MACE-Pro4 UC+ picture engine
    • 4K 60 fps (H.265 10-bit hardware decoding)
    • HDMI 2.0
    • USB 3.0
  • 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • 8GB eMMC 5.0 flash
  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 4.0

At the same time, Lei Jun also took to the stage to unveil Xiaomi’s new product – the Mi Water Purifier for RMB1299 (US$209). Many households have a water purifier to ensure that their drinking water is clean, and the Mi Water Purifier is a beautifully built high-quality option at an incredible price that fits into Xiaomi’s vision of bringing innovation to everyone.

Mi Water Purifier uses reverse osmosis technology, which applies pressure through a RO membrane to separate purified water from tap water. This technology is generally used for bottled pure water filtration, desalination and medical water. Mi Water Purifier employs a fourstep RO filtration – 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.

With a 400-gallon high flow RO filter and an optimized water purification path that improves filtration efficiency, one of the biggest advantages of Mi Water Purifier is its higher rate of water flow. This means that users can get purified water whenever they need it, avoiding the need to purify water in advance for storage, and cutting the risk of impurities affecting the stored water. Mi Water Purifier can purify up to 76 barrels of water per day.

Mi Water Purifier is also a smart device. It can be monitored via the Mi Home app, allowing users to check real-time filter effectiveness, and even reminding users to change filters, which can be purchased directly within the app.
