While the company has not confirmed whether they will launch Mi Box 4 SE or Mi Box S, some reports speculate that it is also possible Xiaomi might just bring Mi TV stick instead of Mi Box. So we will have to wait until Friday for the official announcement.

Xiaomi Mi Box S

Successor to the original Mi Box, Xiaomi’s current 4K streaming media player Mi Box S runs Android TV OS (based on 8.1 Oreo) and is priced at an affordable $59 (approximately Rs 4,500). Talking about hardware, Xiaomi Mi Box S is powered by a quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, paired with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. These innards give it the capability to play 4K HDR videos at up to 60fps, which is quite impressive, given the set top box’s affordable price. Not just that, there’s support for Dolby DTS audio as well.
