Xiaomi Briefly Unveiled Its New Mi TV Stick 'For a Better and Simpler TV Experience'

By Shabana Arif on at

Xiaomi has just unveiled what looks to be an Android-based streaming device called the Mi Stick TV.

Xiaomi Germany's online event was mostly centred around the Redmi Note 9 smartphone, but the company teased a few other products it has in the pipeline, including a scooter, wearables, and the streaming stick. All that was shared on the latter device was the product image and tagline: "for a better and simpler TV experience." Not particularly informative, but it's a streaming stick. We can hazard a guess about the basic features.

First up, we just need to take a gander at the remote in the picture to see that it features a dedicated Google Assistant button, so we can safely assume it'll run Android - most likely Android TV 9 Pie. There's also support for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, given the presence of those very buttons.

The Mi TV Stick probably won't be too far removed from the Mi Box 4K, and taking into account the smaller size, we'd guess the price tag will be much more affordable. The stick is already listed on Gearbest  but doesn't have a confirmed price or release date yet. [AndroidPolice]
