Xiaomi Mi Box 4K streaming device on Friday made its debut in India, 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 through the 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, and more.
Mi Box 4K price in India, sale date
Xiaomi Mi Box 4K price is set at Rs. 3,499. It will go on sale for the first time on May 10 at 12pm (noon) via Flipkart, mi.com, Mi Home stores, and Mi Studio stores. It will also soon reach the Xiaomi partner offline stores. Xiaomi has partnered with Docubay, Epic, HoiChoi, and Shemaroo to provide exciting offers to Mi Box 4K buyers. Alongside the Mi Box 4K, Xiaomi also launches the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 in India today.
Mi Box 4K features
The Mi TV Box 4K is designed to be placed on a table-top, and is connected to the TV using an included HDMI cable. The device is powered by a quad-core Amlogic processor, and features 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage for apps. Up to 4K streaming on supported content platforms is supported, along with the HDR10 format. The device will be capable of playing 4K and HDR content from streaming platforms supporting these formats, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
Unlike Xiaomi’s range of televisions, which run on the company’s interface, the Mi Box 4K will only run the stock Android TV interface. As the device is being targeted at advanced users who usually know what they’re looking for, PatchWall’s content discovery-based features have been left out of this device.
