Xiaomi Mi TV Stick shows its power

 

One of the most interesting products that Xiaomi has developed and that has not yet been presented is the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick, a “pen” that will offer a low-price solution for TVs that do not have Smart TVs.

Since information was leaked from this My TV Stick, we knew that it would come in two versions that we previously told you about. This «skewer» allows the user to have a multimedia player on any TV with access to Netflix, HBO, Disney +, Spotify, Twitch, Amazon Prime …, as well as navigation and file playback.

 

Xiaomi Mi TV Stick 2K

The less interesting version that is dedicated to the reproduction of Full HD and 2K content will arrive with the following specifications:

  • Cortex-A53 quad-core 2.0GHz processor with Mali-450 GPU
  • 8 GB of eMMC storage
  • Android TV 9.0
  • 1080p (1920 x 1080) 2K HDR output
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • Remote control with voice recognition (Google Assistant)
  • Dolby Audio, DTS Surround Sound
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz)
  • HDMI 2.0
  • Micro usb

The power of the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick for Full HD or 2K TV is 547 points in single-core usage tests and 1482 points in single-core usage tests on the Geekbench platform.

This power if compared to a smartphone, we see that this It will be as powerful as the legendary Xiaomi Redmi 3S, a smartphone that was launched on the market in 2016 and that offered in Antutu about 40,000 points.

A power that clearly reflects that this would not be powerful enough to move image and video files with ease and is relegated to a basic use of online video viewing.

This version for Full HD TV is for sale in its Global version priced at € 33 / $ 37 at this Aliexpress seller. The sale price is expected to official public is € 29.99 when Xiaomi officially presents it for Europe.

 

Xiaomi Mi TV Stick 4K

This version is the most interesting because its hardware is somewhat more powerful when it comes with a better processor than that of its younger brother, which can only handle files for Full HD TV. This version is almost identical in all sections except the processor and RAM.

  • Amlogic S905Y2 processor with Mali G-31 MP2 GPU
  • 8 GB of eMMC storage
  • Android TV 9.0
  • 4K (3840 x 2160) with HDR
  • 2GB of RAM
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • Remote control with voice recognition (Google Assistant)
  • Dolby Audio, DTS Surround Sound
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz)
  • HDMI 2.0
  • Micro usb

The power of this version is somewhat higher and we would be facing a Geekbench score of 849 points in single-core tests and 2283 points in all-core tests.

This score if compared to that of a smartphone we see that this Xiaomi Mi TV Stick 4K will offer the same power as a Xiaomi Redmi 4A that was launched on the market in 2016 and offered about 50,000 points in Antutu.

This power is somewhat better than that of its version for Full HD content. This extra power allows you to go as far as 4K image playback. A little adjusted power for this heavy format.

This Mi TV Stick 4K will have a price that will be around € 35 in Spain when Xiaomi launches it on the market this July with the new Xiaomi Mi Band 5 Global.

You have to think that both versions of the Mi TV Stick arrive to consume streaming content, so that the image processing and loading is less than when the files are played on the Mi TV Stick itself.

Likewise, and as a recommendation, the purchase of the Xiaomi becomes much more recommended My TV Box that says with an oscillating price of € 55. This Xiaomi Mi TV Box has much more balanced hardware than the Mi TV Stick and is the winning option if we are going to use this type of media a lot for the reproduction of local multimedia content or via streaming.

Both Xiaomi Mi TV Stick face the Amazon Fire TV and these have a major company after the development and manufacturing as well as the use of their Alexa AI with great community support. Xiaomi with the Mi TV Stick is not going to have it very easy and it may be that this new “invention” of the Chinese company we see that it has to lower more price to be a winning option despite containing the native Android TV layer.
