We’ve been seeing leaks for the impending Xiaomi Android TV streaming stick for months now, with regulatory filings and specs slowly leaking out. Now the entire device and it’s retail packaging has leaked out leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination.
The device itself is unremarkable, with a HDMI plug at one end and a micro-USB for power near the lower end — apart from the Mi branding that’s about it. The remote is similarly plain with the standard Android TV control buttons including a dedicated Assistant button along with dedicated Netflix and Amazon Prime buttons.
The retail packaging has also leaked alongside which doesn’t really add a lot to the conversation but does confirm Dolby Digital 2.0 Plus pass-though for digital audio if you have a compatible player. The full specs of the device are listed as:
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB eMMC storage
- 2.0GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 processor with Mali-450 GPU
- Android TV 9.0
- 1080p output
- Bluetooth 4.2
- Google Assistant
- Bluetooth remote with Voice Assistant key and dedicated Netflix and Amazon Prime Video buttons
- Support for Dolby Audio and DTS Surround Sound
- Dual-Band Wi-Fi
- Ports – HDMI (2.0a), MicroUSB port
According to the leak the device will be available from July 15, it’s unlikely that we will see the Xiaomi TV Stick released officially in Australia, but when has that ever stopped us getting our grubby little swagman hands on one!
