Android TV has seen a bit of a resurgence in recent months. Thanks in large part to rumors of Google working on its own Android TV dongle, people are excited about the platform again. Unreleased hardware aside, there are some other new products on the horizon. One such product is the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick.
The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick has appeared a few times already. The company first teased it back in May and it got unboxed ahead of release last month. The dongle is now showing up in Europe, and we can see the official pricing for the first time. Xiaomi is listing the Mi TV Stick in Portugal for €39.99. The device is marked as coming “soon.”
Previous rumors suggested the Mi TV Stick would support 4K, but the model listed on Xiaomi’s website is only 1080p. That’s likely because of the processor used in the dongle being unable to output 4K resolution. The listed model has a micro USB port instead of USB-C as well as less RAM (1GB vs 2GB) and a less powerful processor. The full specifications can be seen below.
Mi TV Stick FHD:
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB storage
- Quad-core Cortex-A53 processor with Mali-450 GPU
- 1080p output
- Bluetooth 4.2
- Google Assistant
- Bluetooth remote with Voice Assistant key and dedicated Netflix and Amazon Prime Video buttons
- Support for Dolby Audio and DTS Surround Sound
- Dual-Band Wi-Fi
- Ports – HDMI (1), Micro USB port (1)
As mentioned, the price is €39.99 and it’s not currently available for purchase, though you can sign up to be notified when it is. The rumored launch date is July 15th, but we’re not sure which regions will be getting the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick. We’ll be keeping an eye out for its launch in other regions.
