Xiaomi Mi TV Stick launched: 1080p Android TV dongle arrives globally for €39.99
Xiaomi has announced the Mi TV Stick, its first Android TV dongle. As expected, the Mi TV Stick is a 1080p streamer, although there are rumours that a 4K version is on the way. The Mi TV Stick has not replaced the Mi Box S for the time being, though.
The Mi TV Stick measures 92.4 x 30.2 x 15.2 mm and weighs 28.5 g. The Mi TV Stick only comes in black and has a two-toned finish. According to Xiaomi, the Mi TV Stick has the following specifications:
- CPU - Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53
- GPU - ARM Mali-450
- RAM - 1 GB
- Storage - 8 GB
The Mi TV Stick runs Android 9.0 TV and supports Bluetooth 4.2, along with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi. Hence, the Mi TV Stick can connect to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks. It also has a full-sized HDMI port and a micro USB port for power.
The Mi TV Stick retails for €39.99 and comes bundled with a multi-function remote. The remote operates over Bluetooth and supports Google Assistant. Xiaomi has also listed the Mi TV Stick in the UK, but it has not revealed pricing at the time of writing. Similarly, it is unclear when the Mi TV Stick will be available to purchase in the EU or the UK.
