Over the years Xiaomi has made a name for itself in the Android TV box market. Like its smartphones, Chinese small TV boxes stand out for their excellent price-performance ratio. Like Google’s Chromecast, the Mi Box TV range has established itself as a benchmark of the market.
Building on this success, Xiaomi is launching two new models in China (pending arrival in Europe). If the Mi Box 4S is a small update of the previous model, the Mi Box 4S Pro can already display 8K content.
Mi Box 4S Pro: Android TV with 8K sauce
Like the Mi Box 4S, the Pro version stands out with its new design. If Xiaomi retains a format with rounded corners, the small white case is intended to be flatter than the previous one. A welcome little update and more in tune with the times.
Under the hood, the Mi Box 4S Pro contains a new Amlogic S905X chip (ARM for the 4S), 2 GB of RAM (like the classic version) and 16 GB of storage (2 times more than the Mi Box 4S). Mostly, the Mi Box 4S Pro integrates an HDMI 2.1 port for better connectivity.
The main interest of this Mi Box 4S Pro lies in its support for 8K. Although little present for the moment, this image quality will become more democratic in the years to come. Also, the Mi Box 4S Pro therefore promises to respond to the evolutions of tomorrow which gives it a certain durability.
This is all the more remarkable as the Android TV box is very affordable. In China, it is marketed at a price of 399 yuan or about 51 euros. The Mi Box 4S costs only 289 yuan (37 euros) but must be content with 4K.
Ready for tomorrow’s TV
Obviously, this Mi Box 4S Pro does not seem very relevant in France at the moment. 4K TVs are only beginning to democratize among the very general public, so the 8K models remain reserved for a restricted public with comfortable finances.
Another limitation: the contents. For now, 8K television remains experimental (we are thinking, for example, of the broadcasting of certain matches from the Rolland Garros tennis tournament) and the main SVOD services (Netflix, Disney +, MyCanal, OCS, Amazon Prime Vide) currently only offer content in 4K.
It must be said that the streaming of 8K content will require particularly fast network infrastructures. This is also what 5G will be used for. In the meantime, Xiaomi is ready.
