Xiaomi Launches Mi Box 4S Pro | $60 8K Streaming Box In China
Xiaomi has announced the Mi Box 4S Pro, a streaming box capable of 8K video playback. The product was revealed on Weibo and is already available to order in China for 399 yuan, or about $60.
“About the Mi Box 4S Pro, we have no global plans to share at the moment,” a Xiaomi representative told Android Authority in response to an emailed query. This doesn’t mean that the streaming box isn’t leaving China at all, but it does suggest that you shouldn’t expect it in your market any time soon.
The box has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and supports HDMI 2.1. It comes with a Bluetooth remote that offers voice control. It’s not clear exactly which services will have 8K content available, or whether there are other ways to view your own 8K files on the device.
