We already have for sale in Chinese stores the new Xiaomi Stick with which we can smartize our TV called Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick. A small device that, as we anticipate, includes the Amlogic S905Y2 SoC that improves the Xiaomi Mi Box S although, as we see right now it has high price.
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 Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick 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. At the moment we do not know if it includes a remote control with a microphone but we hope to expand its characteristics in a few hours.
