Xiaomi has officially announced two Smart TV STB’s in China, dubbed as the Xiaomi Mi Box 4 and Mi Box 4c. It’s been a while since Xiaomi launched an STB; To be precise, the last launch of Mi Box 3s and Mi Box 3c happened back in November 2016. The highlight of the newly announced Mi Box 4 and Box 4c is the support for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and 4K HDR. The Mi Box 4 is priced affordably at 349 Yuan (approx. Rs 3,480), and the Box 4c retails for just 249 Yuan (approx. Rs 2483). Both the STBs are already up for preorder in China, and the open sale will commence from February 1, 2018.

Xiaomi Mi Box 4 and Box 4c Specifications
Talking about the specifications of the Mi Box 4, it has a square-shaped design and weighs around 145grams. The Box 4 will be available in a single white colour option and measures 1.6cm in thickness.

Hardware side of things, the Mi Box 4 is powered by a 64-bit quad-core chipset, which is paired with an unknown graphics unit. The chipset is coupled to 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, which takes care of system operations.

Xiaomi did not announce which software the Mi Box 4 will be running, but we’re expecting it to boot a custom interface like MIUI. Ports-wise, we get an HDMI port, AV port, and a USB port for connecting external devices such as hard disk or pen drive.

One of the significant upgrades in the Mi Box 4 is the support for 4K HDR quality content and Dolby & DTS audio support.

Xiaomi also has added numerous software tweaks in the newer models such as the PatchWall system voice assistant, which allows the user to issue voice commands to perform actions such as searching for keywords, checking the weather, etc. It also has Artificial Intelligence support, meaning the Box 4 will monitor your watching habits and suggests content based on your previous watching. The Mi Box 4 also supports voice-activated smart appliances.

Coming back to the Mi Box 4c, it has similar specifications as the Mi Box 4 but comes with decreased memory and storage. The Box 4c has 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. Also, the Mi Box 4 is available in a single White colour option, while the Box 4c will be available in a Matte Black colour option. We’re not sure whether Xiaomi will bring these to the Indian market or not.
