The Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is finally orderable for US$57.99 with Android TV 11 and a voice remote
The Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is finally on sale, roughly six weeks after Xiaomi announced it globally. Building on the Mi TV Stick, the TV Stick 4K relies on an Amlogic S950Y4 SoC that provides 4K support. For reference, the TV Stick 4K is compatible with AV1, VP9, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. Additionally, the Amlogic S950Y4 also includes four ARM Cortex-A35 CPU cores and a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU.
According to Xiaomi, the TV Stick 4K runs Android TV 11 out of the box, on which it pre-installed Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube, among other apps. Accordingly, the TV Stick 4K's remote has built-in Amazon Prime Video and Netflix buttons, plus a dedicated button for summoning Google Assistant. Android TV 11 has access to the Google Play Store though, so you are not stuck with those three streaming services.
Currently, the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is available at two prices on AliExpress, depending on from where it ships. For some reason, the device costs US$57.99 when shipped from China, but US$77.32 if you select Russia. Both editions ship with an EU charger, although you only need a low wattage charger to power the device via micro USB. As the photo below shows, Xiaomi also bundles a remote control, a user manual and an HDMI extender.
