The Mi Box 4 was launched in China earlier this year in January. Xiaomi now seems to be gearing up to launch the smart TV box in the US.

The Xiaomi Mi Box 4 was recently spotted on US’ FCC website. The listing (spotted by Variety), contains a few photos of the smart TV box, along with the model number MDZ-22-AB. Going by the color, and the fact that it supports Bluetooth connectivity, it is quite clear that the device in question is the Mi Box 4 and not the Mi Box 4c.

The listing also contains diagrams of the square-ish Mi Box, and its remote. The remote retains the microphone button towards the top, as well as two shortcut buttons for Live TV and Netflix. The functionality of the buttons are pretty self-explanatory. The mic allows users to search for keywords, open apps, check the weather as well as calendar, among others by speaking into the remote control.
