Xiaomi has officially released its Android TV-powered Mi Box in the US, five months after announcing the device at Google I/O earlier this year. The $69 Mi Box will support Google Cast box out of the box, and will playback 4K content at 60fps, as well as HDR content, matching Roku's latest set-top boxes.
Spec-wise the Mi Box itself is a pretty midrange device, featuring a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU processor, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of flash storage (additional storage can be added via the USB port). The Mi Box is also compatible with Xiaomi's Mi Game Controller so you can play more complex games. Given the low price when compared to similar devices from Roku and Apple, and the fact that it will be sold in Walmart, XIaomi's first US product has a decent chance of finding an audience in the States.
You can purchase the Xiaomi Mi Box from mi.com and in Walmart stores across the US today.
