Xiaomi TV Stick 4K debuted as an upgrade to the company’s existing Mi TV Stick, which launched last year in India and other markets around the world. As the name suggests, the new model offers 4K streaming. Xiaomi TV Stick 4K also works out of the box on Android TV 11 and supports Dolby Vision technology for an enhanced video playback experience. The media streaming stick also contains more memory than last year’s model, but has the same storage capacity.
Currently, Xiaomi has listed the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K on its global website without specifying its price and availability. However, the company’s historical data suggests that the price of the new model will likely be in line with competing 4K streaming sticks. It is expected to cost more than the Mi TV Stick launched in Europe for Euro 39.99 (about Rs. 3,400). It debuted in India at Rs. 2,799.
