The new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick

By surprise we receive information about a new Xiaomi product for our televisions, it´s the Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick, a new media device expected to have all the necessary certificates to watch 4K/FHD quality content on Netflix, Prime Video, Disney + or HBO and very possibly comes with Android TV 9 OS.
This new device is expected to arrive in Europe in May, although with the Covid19 it may be delayed. A dongle that we have not yet seen in the Chinese market, which arrives without warning directly to the European market, perhaps due to the large consumption of streaming that is done daily on any screen.

Possible specifications:
We still do not have Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick but if we have to bet we opted for an AMlogic S905Y2 SoC ,  a Quad Core manufactured in 12nm with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. The RAM could be 2GB and the storage 8 or 16GB eMMc. A sufficient number to use it as a streaming device, you can see how this processor performs similar to the S905Y2, a SoC much more powerful than the S905X-L of the current Mi Box S.

At the wireless connectivity level it will undoubtedly have WiFi AC Dual band and Bluetooth. At the connector level we will have the minimums given its size, with a single USB Type-C or micro USB port for electrical charging and possibly with OTG functions. Hopefully a small Bluetooth remote will accompany. As soon as it is available, we will see all its characteristics in detail.

Price and availability:
The Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick as we say may or may not arrive in May its price will be lower than the Xiaomi Mi Box S, but we calculate that not much more so we can expect a price of € 40/50 starting.
