First image of the box of the new Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick for the version that has received the certification for the European market with the reference MDZ-24-AA. As we can see on the front face of the box we have a FHD logo, we can assume this device is oriented to reproduce content at 1080p maximum resolution. If there is no other version we are looking at a very limited product and that moves away from the Google ADT-3 prototype that if you use a more powerful hardware with the SoC S905Y2.
In the box we can see as indicated compatibility with the integrated Chromecast function, also indicated compatible streaming systems such as Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, HBO and others, if only up to FullHD quality. The remote control can see the buttons dedicated to launch Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, the operating system will be Android TV 9 and will have Dolby audio certificate.
SoC, RAM and storage
This new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick in this FHD only version will feature an AMlogic S905X SoC possibly in a custom variant of the S905X-L we have the current Xiaomi Mi Box S, a Quad Core made with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-450 MP5 GPU. The RAM seems to be reduced to cut the costs and maybe it stays in 1 GB something too basic that will limit multitasking and will have 8 GB eMMc storage.
In the field of wireless connectivity we have Wi-Fi aC Dual Band and Bluetooth 4.2. In terms of connectors given its size we have only one HDMI 2.0 connector and a micro USB port for power. A Bluetooth remote control with microphone for Google Assistant is included.
Price and availability
- The Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick can be pre-purchased now at Aliexpress.com, Gearbest.com, Banggood.com o Geekbuying.com only for $42.69 (€38.5) with shipping included.
