Today we already have the official confirmation of the new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick, a device that was already leaked a few weeks ago and that we have seen it in pre-sale in online stores such as Gearbest.com. The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick can be seen in a video presentation of new products of the brand where Christian Klaus public relations and communications manager for the German-speaking regions shows us the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick briefly. In this video we can also see a new Xiaomi Mi Band and an unknown electric scooter.
In this announcement no more data is specified but we can see that it will include a Bluetooth remote control very similar to the one that carries the current Xiaomi Mi Box S with the addition of the Amazon Prime button. The included operating system is Android TV 9.0 and we assume that it has all the necessary certificates to watch 4K / FHD quality content on paid streaming platforms such as Netflix, Prime Video, Disney + or HBO. As always we hope to have a REVIEW of the new Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick soon.
SoC, RAM and storage
The new Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick maybe includes an AMlogic S905Y2 SoC, a Quad Core manufactured in 12nm with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. The memory is 2GB DDR4 and the storage is 8GB eMMc. A low figures enough to use it as a streaming device, you can see how this processor performs in our Review of a similar S905Y2, a SoC much more powerful than the S905X-L of the current Mi Box S.
At the wireless connectivity level we have WiFi aC Dual band and Bluetooth 4.0. At the connector level, given its size, we only have an HDMI 2.0 port, a USB Type-C port and a micro USB for power. A Bluetooth remote control with microphone for Google Assistant voice assistant is included with the Stick.
