Xiaomi My Box 3 receives its long-awaited update to Android TV 9

We now have available the final version of Android TV 9 for the Xiaomi Mi Box 3 TV-Box, the first Western Xiaomi TV-Box model that was replaced by the Xiaomi Mi Box S. This device included the AMlogic S905X-H SoC as we saw in one of our review some time ago. Xiaomi shows with this update that they are quite fond of this TV-Box which was their first success in the Android TV sector globally.

This update is only for the Xiaomi Mi Box 3 with reference MDZ-16-AB, it has a weight of 650 MB the OTA distribution may take for some users and it is necessary to wait. If we have problems with a function like Chromecast we recommend doing a factory reset and retrying.


  • Updated to Android TV 9.
  • Prime Video is included as standard.
  • Works seamlessly with Chromecast, Netflix, Youtube, HBO and others.
  • Integrated auto frame rate system.
  • There seems to be problems with multichannel audio output over HDMI.
