Finally we have news of the new Xiaomi Mi Box 2nd Generation for the international market. A hardware that does not receive many changes externally but internally.
The new Xiaomi Box 4K (2nd Gen) is presented under the reference MDZ-28-AA. As expected it will have Google certification, integrated Chromecast system and a Bluetooth remote control with microphone included for Google Assitant. The remote as we see offers direct access keys to applications such as Netflix, Youtube, Prime Video and direct access to other apps. A Box that does not change the number of positions that we have available, which will be quite few. This device has already passed the FCC certification for radio frequency and NCC.
Xiaomi Box 4K (2nd Gen) Specifications
The Xiaomi Box 4K Smart Box (2nd Gen) is expected to be more powerful than Xiaomi’s previous product for the international market, the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K which mounted the S905Y4. So it should offer us at least the AMlogic S905X4 SoC, a Quad Core manufactured in 12 nm. A chip with low-power ARM Cortex-A55 processors that theoretically reach 2 GHz speed. It integrates a mid-range Mali-G31 MP2 GPU.
The VPU of this SOC offers AV1 decoding support, also includes HDR, HDR10 and HLG support, although in this case it does not have Dolby Vision. As for audio, it supports up to Dolby Atmos officially.
It will probably mount 2 GB of DDR4 RAM and 16 GB of eMMc storage that we will be able to expand through its USB port. A storage size that we have already seen in recent devices.
In terms of connectivity as we see follows the first Xiaomi Mi Box 1Gen design. We will have wireless connectivity, we have Wifi aC and Bluetooth 5.2 as a minimum. The connectors are few, we have a USB port, audio jack connector and an HDMI 2.1 video output with support for up to 4K@60fps resolutions.
As usual, an HDMI cable, Bluetooth remote control with integrated microphone to use Google Assistant and power supply are included to be able to use this Smart Box right out of the box.
