Xiaomi makes other products too, rolls out the Mi TV 2S in China

In case you don't know, Xiaomi doesn't just make smartphones. The company also manufactures other devices like TVs and only recently, a water purifier. We're not much interested in the latter because the brand's latest 4K TV has captured our attention. Officially called as the Xiaomi Mi TV 2S, this new device boasts of a 48-inch 4K display screen in a 9.9mm thick aluminium frame. This thinness of the TV seems impossible but the Chinese company was able to make it a reality.

Last week, we learned that Xiaomi is one of the biggest names in the fake Android market. That's not really something to be proud of but we know Xiaomi is determined to be bigger not only in China but in other countries as well albeit not in the US anytime soon.

Fake Android market prefer Samsung and Xiaomi

We usually see numbers, sales, and financial reports of big companies. Almost every quarter, we learn of figures released by tech giants in several earnings calls.

Android top in the US but not Europe; Galaxy S6 sales boost Samsung

We've been wondering if the good reviews of Samsung's new flagship, the Galaxy S6 will translate to sales to help boost the previous smartphone champs. The number (at least from Kantar) are in, and it looks like they have indeed helped the OEM regain top spot in the US, becoming the third best-selling smartphone in the country, just after the iPhone 6 and Samsung's previous flagship, the Galaxy S5. Android has also continued to regain the top spot in the US when it comes to sales, but in Europe's big five, it's still a no go.

Xiaomi launches in Brazil, brings entry-level Redmi 2 Android phone

We haven't heard much recently from Xiaomi the past months but we know the latest model, the Redmi 2, is arriving in other countries other than China but not in the US (not yet). According to Hugo Barra, they are still testing the market first if Mi accessories will sell or not. That's understandable because it can be a challenge for a new Chinese startup to just enter a big market like the United States.
