Xiaomi has announced that they’ll be bringing an updated version of their Mi Box settop box to US customers later this year. The updated device will be similar to their current model, but most importantly will now run Android TV, making it the fourth official Android TV settop box to be released. The new Mi Box will feature 4K video support at 60fps through an HDMI 2.0a port. It will also be capable of HDR, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS surround sound. The box will come with a Bluetooth voice remote, while an optional game controller, which appears to be identical to their existing game controller, will be sold separately.
Xiaomi has not revealed anything about the internet specs other than saying it will be capable of dual-band 802.11ac WiFi. The current Mi Box packs a 2Ghz quad-core CPU and 1GB of memory, so you can probably expect something similar with the model slated for the US. Hopefully they’ll offer more than the measly 4GB of internal storage that the current model contains, but Xiaomi has said the new device will feature a USB port for external storage. Pricing or a release date have not been announced.
