One of the products we expect to be announced at Google‘s event in October is a new Mi Box. This device is currently being sold in China by Xiaomi as the Mi Box 4. However, a new report has revealed what its marketing name will be outside China.
The Mi Box 4 will be sold as the Mi Box S outside China. The name was found by the folks at XDA-Developers under the list of Google Play Certified devices. The list also reveals the device’s model as Mi Box 4.
The Mi Box S comes with a new design but packs the same internals as the Mi Box (Mi Box 3). It also comes with a redesigned remote with a dedicated Netflix button. It was seen at the FCC a couple of months ago. Since the original launched in the US, this should also be sold in the US.
The Mi Box S will support 4K streaming and video playback and should have Dolby Digital and DTS Surround Sound like its predecessor. There is no info with respect to its price but we presume it may sell for the same $70 price as the Mi Box. It should also come with Android TV Oreo out of the box.
