Xiaomi presented the latest version of its HDMI key to equip your television with Android TV, the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K, compatible with 4K, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision.
If we know Xiaomi above all for its smartphones, bracelets and other electric scooters, the Chinese manufacturer has also managed to make a name for itself in the field of televisions. It is true that the firm offers some products at very competitive prices, but it is also at the origin of several very effective boxes to equip its televisions with connected functions.
The latest Xiaomi case is not strictly speaking, as it is in fact an HDMI dongle. The Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is a simple dongle with an HDMI connection that connects to the TV, quite similar to Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K Max. From then on, like a Mi TV Box S or the latest generation of Chromecast, the TV will be able to take advantage of all the functions of Google’s operating system for televisions, Android TV. This is a version of Android TV based on Android 11.
Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support
In terms of features, this new HDMI key offers a data sheet close to the key presented last year with 8 GB of storage, 2 GB of RAM and an Amlogic S905Y4 chip. It is also certified for use with the Netflix and Amazon Prime video streaming platforms. The Xiaomi TV Stick 4K also supports Dolby Vision for HDR video, as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS HD for spatial audio. As the name suggests, the key is also intended to stream files in 4K Ultra HD.
As always happens with this type of product, it will be necessary to connect the USB key to the television or to the network to power it with the integrated micro-USB connector. Xiaomi also provides a remote control with its 4K TV Stick, allowing you to navigate directly on the interface or launch Netflix or Prime Video with a simple tap. Google’s voice assistant is also supported.
Regarding availability, the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is already shown in the manufacturer’s website, but without precision in terms of the countries in which it will be marketed. We also do not know its launch price. As a reminder, the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick from 2020, only in Full HD, was offered at 40 euros.
