Xiaomi TV Stick 4K officially announced with support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos
The Mi TV Stick 4K doesn't have an official India release date.

Xiaomi has silently launched a 4K variant of its streaming stick called the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K. To put things into perspective, the Mi TV Stick available in India is a 1080p stick and to go 4K, you will have to consider the Mi Box 4K (review). It isn’t clear whether the new Xiaomi TV Stick 4K will come to India, but considering the diverse portfolio of the Amazon Fire TV Stick, it could give Amazon’s streaming dongle a run for its money. 

Xiaomi TV Stick 4K Specifications and Features

Kicking things off with the specifications of the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K, it is powered by a quad-core Cortex-A35 CPU coupled with a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. It has 2 GB RAM and 8GB Storage and runs on Android 11 out of the box. Just like Xiaomi TVs, the device has access to popular streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and more. It has support for Dual-Band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5. The device comes with a remote control that looks identical to the remote control found on the Mi and Redmi TVs in India. It has a dedicated button to bring up the Google Assistant along with OTT hotkeys for Netflix and Prime Video. 

As mentioned above, the device supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos in addition to the 4K resolution. It also supports Chromecast built-in.  

Xiaomi TV Stick 4K Price and Availability

There is no information on whether Xiaomi will launch the device in India nor any information about the price.
