A fresh leak about the new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick media console indicates that the new product will replace the Mi TV Box S device and will be sold on the global market. Xiaomi has already shown the future product itself, so it makes no sense to doubt its existence. New data from the Reddit forum reveals more information about this device.
The forum message provides the result of the “detective work” of Web users who have discovered images and information about the new device. The data given is consistent with the information that we heard about at the end of last month due to the leak of the Chinese GearBest store.
In particular, it is reported that the new product will receive native support for Chromecast and will run on the Android TV 9.0 operating system. In addition, it is indicated that the delivery kit of the new media set-top box will include a control panel, which itself will receive support from the Google Assistant digital assistant, as well as separate buttons for Amazon Prime Video and Netflix video services. It is also reported that the Mi TV Stick will receive support for Dolby DTS-HD audio technology.
Published information indicates that Xiaomi will release the Mi TV Stick media extension to the global market. One of the images shows the model number of the global version of the key fob – SKU PFJ4098EU. A quick search on the Internet showed that the novelty is already listed among some online sellers and its cost is 39.95 euros. In addition, the model number MDZ-24-AA is indicated in the list. A device with the same identifier has recently been tested by the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECE).
One of the published images also marks a model for the US market – SKU PFJ4100US. But a search on this number yields nothing.
According to one of the Spanish retailers, the European model of the media stick Mi TV Stick will go on sale in late July. If the price remains around the declared 39.95 euros, then the new product will be cheaper than the current version of the Xiaomi Mi Box S set-top box.
In the set-top box market, Mi TV Stick will compete with products such as Amazon Fire TV Stick and a similar keychain from Google. Both should also be officially unveiled in the near future.
