  • Google Android TV comes to new 4K HDR Xiaomi Mi Box S for $60

This box looks a lot like what we saw earlier this year with the Xiaomi Mi Box 4 and 4c, but here we've got a new remote and the newest version of Android TV, and most importantly for us, it'll be released internationally - available to the U.S. in the process.

The Xiaomi Mi Box S features Android TV based on Android 8.1. Running Android 8.1 out the box, this lets you access a "world of content", including Netflix, VUDU, Spotify, YouTube, and SlingTV.

The design of the box is not the only new thing. Just like the Mi Box, you can also connect a supported gamepad and play games on the big screen.

Mi Box S is available for pre-order starting today for $ 60 and will be sent to customers on October 19.

This ultra-affordable bad boy nearly has it all, including "premium" Dolby and DTS-powered audio, so you may want to hurry and get your pre-order in.

Concerning I/O, the Xiaomi Mi Box S has a full-sized HDMI port, USB-A port, and an AV port. The Xiaomi Mi Box S is priced at $59.99 and is only available to buy through Walmart. It is powered by a quad-core 64-bit Cortex A53 CPU, coupled with a Mali-450 GPU, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and 8GB of eMMC storage. You can also use the assistant to find a movie/show, ask it to play a song, or even ask it the weather. Generally speaking, the remote is the same size, shape and design as the original Mi Box remote, but due to the Google Assistant integration the new remote now comes with a microphone and a dedicated "Assistant button" to activate listening.

The Mi Box S has the same internals as the Mi Box. Now that Google doesn't have any first-party Android TV boxes, it's nice to see Xiaomi step in with an affordable option.
