The Xiaomi Mi TV stick is probably the company’s worst kept secret. The device and its variants and specifications have been making the rounds of the internet for quite some time. If new information circulating the internet is to be believed, then the Xiaomi Mi TV stick will be priced at Euro 40 for the 1080p variant which translates to roughly Rs 3500.
In India, the third-generation Chromecast is priced at Rs 3499 so the leaked price seems to be on point. However, there is also the Fire TV stick which is a dominant streaming device in India. The 1080p fire TV stick is priced at Rs 3,999 and the 4K variant is priced at Rs 5,999. If leaked specs are to be believed, then the Mi TV Stick will come in a 1080p and a 4K variant.
As we mentioned above, it looks like the Mi TV Stick will come in two variants - FHD and 4K. Both the sticks are expected to come with remote controls that look like the one found on the Mi Box 4K and will support Bluetooth and run on Android TV 9 Pie. The biggest difference between the two is the support for 4K on one device and 1080p on the other.
The 1080p Mi Stick is also said to support 1GB of RAM while the 4K variant will come with 2GB RAM. The 1080p Mi TV Stick is powered by a 2.0GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU coupled with a Mali 450 GPU while the 4K variant has the Amlogic S509Y2 quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU with Mali G31-MP2 GPU. Both the sticks come with 8GB storage. Both the sticks support Dolby audio and DTS sound as well.
