Processor and memory

In the Amazon Fire TV 2-series, the choice of chip depends on the size of the TV. The 32-inch model has a MediaTek T36 chip, while the larger 40-inch version has a MediaTek T31, which is a bit more powerful and has a graphics chip that supports Full HD resolution.

To be precise, the 32-inch model has a 1.45GHz ARM Cortex-A53 processor. In the 40-inch version, performance is boosted by an ARM Cortex-A55 processor clocked at up to 1.5GHz. But in general, these are budget processors with enough power for video processing.

Screen

Fire TV Series 2 TVs feature direct LED backlit displays that support a maximum refresh rate of up to 60 Hz. Although these displays are considered obsolete in the TV manufacturing industry, they are still used by TV OEMs due to their low price. Leading brands have discontinued these TVs in 2020. This series also uses HDR10 and HLG technologies to improve picture quality and color accuracy. However, due to the hardware limitations of the display, the TVs can only realize a fraction of HDR’s potential in terms of color range and performance.

Dimensions

The smaller 32-inch variant is compact, measuring 28.6 inches (72cm) in width, 17 inches (43cm) in height, and a depth of 3.2 inches (8.1cm). This model is relatively lightweight at 7.7 pounds (3.5 kg), making it suitable for various setups. The stand’s leg span is 22.5 inches (57 cm), offering stability while accommodating smaller spaces.

On the other hand, the 40-inch model is substantially larger and tailored for those who prefer a more expansive screen. It measures 35.6 inches (90.4cm) in width, 20.5 (52cm) inches in height, and a depth of 3.4 inches (8.6cm). Weighing in at 12.8 pounds (5.8 kg), it offers a solid presence with a leg span of 31.4 inches (79.7 cm), providing a sturdy base for the larger display.

Ports

Both models are well-equipped in terms of connectivity, featuring nine different ports. These include three HDMI 1.4 ports (one with ARC support), a USB 2.0 port, an RF input for ATSC 1.0, a digital optical audio input, a headphone output, an IR Emitter, and an Ethernet port capable of 10/100Mbps. These ports are positioned in a recessed area at the back of the TV, ensuring easy access and cable management.

Who manufactures Amazon Fire TV 2-Series

Amazon typically partners with various manufacturers to produce its Fire TV devices, including TVs, sticks, and cubes. The specific OEMs for the Fire TV 2nd series can vary by region and manufacturing agreements, but common manufacturers include companies like TCL and Hisense. Judging by the similarity in parameters, the TVs are most likely manufactured in TCL’s factories.
