Xiaomi has announced its first curved television, the Android-powered Mi TV 3S, which features a 4K 65-inch curved Samsung display for superior optics and comes in at a razor-thin 5.9 mm. At just ¥8,999 – the equivalent of $1,385 – the Mi TV 3S is a highly affordable, ridiculously big curved-screen TV.

The Mi TV 3S features a metal frame and is available in two sizes: 65 inches and 43 inches, but only the larger display is 4K – the 43-inch Mi TV 3S is Full HD. The smaller display is also flat, not curved, but it costs significantly less: just ¥1,799, the equivalent of $275 in U.S. currency (although straight currency conversions never count for much). Both televisions are currently only available in China.
The Mi TV 3S runs Xiaomi’s MIUI Android interface and is powered by the Mstar 6A908 TV processor with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. It supports both Dolby and DTS audio decoding and you’ll get the Mi TV Bar thrown in for good measure. It adds a six-piece sound system to this already impressive boob tube.
