Guess which OTT platform in India has the most subscriptions now? Price and availability. The all-new Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is listed on the global website but without the pricing and availability details. It is expected that the device could arrive at a price higher than the existing model, however, Xiaomi will have to set the price low to stay aligned with competitive 4K streaming devices. For reference, the existing streaming device from Xiaomi without 4K support and low RAM costs Rs. 2,799. It is expected that the latest model could be priced around Rs. 3,500. Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is a portable streaming device that includes support for both Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision for enhanced audio and video output. Xiaomi claims the 4K ultra-high-resolution output combined with Dolby Vision technology offers a vivid and immersive visual experience. The streaming stick runs Android 11 and has Google Assistant built-in so that you can open apps by the mere “Ok Google” command.
Xiaomi has unveiled a new TV Stick with 4K support, which was previously unavailable on the previous year’s dongle. Additional RAM while preserving the same storage capacity is another major enhancement in the current model. It also comes with Android 11 pre-installed, as well as Dolby Vision technology for smoother movie playback. The new streaming device now competes directly with some existing goods on the market, such as Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K, thanks to its 4K support.
It comes pre-installed with Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, and YouTube, so you don’t have to install them separately. Also, the bundled remote makes it easier to launch the leading streaming services with just a press of their respective dedicated buttons. Under the hood, the 4K streaming stick from Xiaomi has a quad-core processor (4xCortex-A35 cores), Mali-450 GPU, 2GB RAM, and 8GB built-in storage to store any newly installed apps and games. For connectivity, you get HDMI, Micro-USB, Wi-Fi 2.4GHz/5GHz, and Bluetooth v5.0. It is worth mentioning that both the streaming stick and the remote have Xiaomi’s native branding, unlike the Mi logo available on the earlier model. Sequels for these 10 popular web series on OTT could arrive in 2022. Want to know about the latest happenings in tech? Follow TechRadar India on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
