The Cinema edition of the 2S comes with a separate speaker system which includes a horizontal sound bar along with a dedicated subwoofer. The speaker system supports Dolby Audio as well.
The new Mi TV 2S is powered by an MStar 6A928 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A17 CPU and Mali-T760 GPU along with a 2GB RAM. It includes an internal storage of 8GB and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It also supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. The Mi TV 2S includes HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports.
In other features, the Mi TV boosts a 4K lossless display quality and offers better clarity and true colours than televisions made by Sharp, Sony, and Samsung, as claimed by Xiaomi. The Mi TV 2S also comes with a special power plug that is smaller than a match box which has been developed in partnership with Volex.
