Xiaomi’s 4K capable Android TV Mi Box has made its way to Walmart store shelves ahead of its scheduled release date. The most surprising thing is the previously unknown price. At just $69, it’s now the least expensive 4K streaming box running an official version of Android TV. The Mi Box was announced at Google I/O earlier this year as the 4th member of the Android TV family of devices, but really it’s the only one you should be considering other than the NVIDIA Shield TV, since the Forge TV and Nexus Player are dead in the water. The Mi Box features a quad-core 2Ghz processor, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. One of its biggest advantages over the Fire TV 2, other than the lower price and HDR support, is its ability to play 4K UHD UltraViolet content through a VUDU app. Huge thanks to Trent for the heads up and for providing the above images!
