According to the resource Gizmochina, as well as some other network sources, Xiaomi is going to release two versions of the TV key fob Mi TV Stick – with support for Full HD and 4K resolutions. Their cost will be 50 and 133 US dollars, respectively.
On the web, packaging images of the Full HD version of the new product also appeared. A flash-type TV set-top box with support for Full HD resolution is equipped with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of eMMC memory and operates on the basis of the four-core Cortex-A53 processor and the Mali-450 GPU. The 4K version of the device has on board 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM and a four-core Amlogic S905Y2 with Mali-G31 MP2 graphics.
The younger version is equipped with HDMI (2.0a) and Micro-USB ports, the older one uses Type-C instead of Micro-USB. Both versions support Bluetooth 4.2 and dual-band Wi-Fi.
Earlier it was reported that Xiaomi is going to introduce Mi TV Stick in the global market. In fact, it is a compact version of the Mi Box S set-top box, which currently sells for about $ 60. However, some retailers have already begun to reduce its cost. For example, Walmart offers a $ 50 media extension. Interestingly, for the money, the Mi Box S also offers support for 4K resolution. Against this background, the 4K version of the Mi TV Stick for $ 133 looks a little expensive.
Both versions of the TV key fob can already be ordered through the online stores GearBest and AliExpress. The younger is only available on GearBest. There they ask for $ 50. In the Powerplanetonline.com store, the novelty is estimated at 40 euros (about $ 45).
Recall that the Mi TV Stick will receive support for Chromecast. The device will come bundled with a control panel that has built-in support for the Google Assistant voice assistant. In addition, the remote contains dedicated buttons for Amazon Prime Video and Netflix video services. The set-top box is running the Android TV 9.0 operating system and has access to the Play Store app store.
It is not yet clear whether the Mi TV Stick will replace the Mi Box S or will it be sold simultaneously with it. According to the latest data, the supply of a TV keychain will begin in late July.
