Xiaomi announces new Mi Box 4 global, Chinese variants

Fortunately, Xiaomi has heard you loud and clear, launching two new Android TV boxes in the form of the Mi Box 4 and Mi Box 4C.

The hits continue, as the Mi Box 4 and Mi Box 4c run Android 6.0 Marshmallow under MIUI TV out of the box.

The Mi Box 4c retains pretty much all the key features of the standard Mi Box 4. Both the boxes come with the ability to deliver 4K HDR output with a resolution of 3840 x 2160.


The Mi Box 4 and Mi Box 4c. The TV box will recommend the content based on the past activities of the user including movie reviews and commentaries.

While the Mi Box 4 is priced at CNY 349, the Xiaomi Mi Box 4c is available at CNY 249. It's also compatible with smart home devices; a Xiaomi promotional video shows a user turning down the heater, and another controlling a vacuum cleaner. The main attraction of the Xiaomi Mi Box 4 is the integration of a 4K HDR Ultra HD capability with support for Dolby + DTS audio and H.265 hardware encoding. It let browse content using voice command in the remote control and learn user's viewing habits and suggests content based on their preferences.

Both devices are powered by an Amlogic S905L quad-core processor and Mali-450 GPU clocked at 750 MHz. Meanwhile, the registrations for the devices are now open and the sales will start February 1 in China. The chipset is coupled to 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, which takes care of system operations. Also, while the Mi Box 4 includes Bluetooth 4.1 LE support, the Mi Box 4c uses infrared. The Xiaomi Mi Box 4 supports HDR10, in case you were wondering. And dont forget that the 4c version is strapped for RAM. It comes with AV interface port, HDMI port, and USB port for connectivity. In fact, the CPU, while newer, appears slower than the Quad-Core 2GHz CPU found in the global Mi Box; Xiaomi seems to have kept the new boxes on Android 6.0, the same as the worldwide version which is pretty freaky as Android 8.0 has been around for a while. It also supports intelligent error correction and supports voice-activated smart appliances.
