Xiaomi Mi Box 4K streaming device made its debut in India on Friday as a part of the company’s online launch event. The Mi Box 4K is a standalone Android TV 9 pie-powered device that plugs into your existing television via an HDMI port. The device is Wi-Fi enabled for connectivity and gives users access to a variety of apps and services available on Android TV, including popular streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney + Hotstar.
Mi Box 4K Price, Sale Date in India
Xiaomi Mi Box 4K Price Rs. 3,499. It will first go on sale on May 10 at 12 noon (noon) through Flipkart, mi.com, Mi Home Stores, and Mi Studio Stores. It will also reach Xiaomi partner offline stores soon. Xiaomi has partnered with Docubay, Epic, HoiChoi, and Shemaroo to offer exciting offers to Mi Box 4K buyers. Along with the Mi Box 4K, Xiaomi also launched the Mi True Wireless earphones 2 and Mi 10 5G in India today.
Mi Box 4K feature
The Mi TV Box 4K is designed to be table-top, and is connected to the TV using the included HDMI cable. The device is powered by a quad-core Amlogic processor, and features 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Up to 4K streaming is supported on content platforms supported with the HDR10 format. The device will be able to play 4K and HDR content from streaming platforms that support these formats, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
Unlike Xiaomi’s television range, which runs on the company’s patchwall interface, the Mi Box 4K will only run the stock Android TV interface. Since the device is being targeted at advanced users, who usually know what they are looking for, the content discovery-based features of Patchwall have been omitted from this device.
Users will get additional connectivity on the Mi Box 4K via a USB port and 3.5mm digital out socket, as well as Bluetooth for connecting headphones or wireless speakers for sound. The presence of a USB port allows the device to be used as a local media player, and has extensive support for various video and audio file formats. The device also has a built-in Chromecast Ultra, allowing users to enter content up to 4K resolution.
Xiaomi Mi Box 4K goes up against Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, priced at Rs. 5,999 in India. Xiaomi’s count is dependent on Android TV interface and app familiarity, as well as ease of setup and synchronization with Android mobile devices and Google accounts. However, the lack of support for Dolby Vision content on the Mi Box 4K is a major drawback, given that Netflix now has a plethora of content available in the format in India.
