Xiaomi have unveiled two new 4K-capable Android TV boxes called the Xiaomi Mi 3S and Xiaomi Mi 3C – both based on the successful Xiaomi Mi 3.
The Xiaomi 3S is considered the high end model and is powered by newer quadcore Amlogic S905X. It also features 2Gb of DDR3 RAM, 8gb of storage, dual band wireless AC and Bluetooth 4.1. It’ll support 4K 60fps video playback and HDR video for those with recent 4K TVs.
You’ll also get the company’s MiTouch IR remote which features a touch ring which the company claims improves the browsing experience.
The 3C sees a slight reduction in specs, with both RAM and storage halving to 1gb and 4gb respectively. That 4GB will get pretty tight for apps which will limit you somewhat. However, 4K 60fps playback and HDR video will still be supported.
It’s also important to note that Ethernet is only available via a USB adapter, though the wireless AC should cover most streaming situations.
One really interesting feature is the new PathWall artificial intelligence which the company claims will learn what content you like and suggest similar items. I’m not sure how well this will work outside of the China however.
There’s no word whether English is supported, though English translations have been added in for previous Xiaomi Android TV boxes thanks to the dedicated work of developers.
Inside the box you’ll get the Xiaomi 3S/3C Android TV box, IR remote, power adapter, AA batteries, HDMI cable, and a Chinese instruction manual.
