Xiaomi Mi Box 4 Smart TV Set-Top Box Rumoured to Launch on January 29

It’s been a long time since Xiaomi launched their upgraded Android TV console. The Chinese manufacturer is now all set to unveil their next-gen Smart TV set-top box dubbed Mi Box 4 on January 29. It has almost been one year since the Mi Box 3 was released, so it makes perfect sense that a new model would be on the way. Xiaomi’s Smart TV console was last upgraded back in November 2016 with the release of Mi Box 3c and Mi Box 3s. A 4K Android variant of Mi Box was launched in U.S market in 2017.

Several news outlets from China have shared a new image purportedly from Xiaomi which teases the Mi Box 4 launch. Though whether this image is legitimate or not is yet to be seen, but it suggests the fourth-generation Mi Box will be unveiled on January 29.

The image reveals several floating Mi Boxes with phrases like, “What is the weather today in Bejing,” “Turn on the lights,” “I want to see an action movie,” and “Tell the sweeping robot to sweep the floor.” There’s a larger box in the center with the caption, “I am Mi Box 4, see me as early as Monday at 10:00.” Based on this information, the news outlets have concluded the Mi Box 4 launch date.

There is currently no information available about Mi Box 4’s key features, specs, pricing or availability. The reports say the console is expected to bring its in-house UI for Chinese market while the international variant will be running on the latest version of Android TV.

The latest “Mi Box” Set-top Box (STB) is also expected to include Artificial Intelligence (AI) based features that were already introduced in the company’s Mi Smart TVs. For example, the Box will be monitoring the user’s watching habits, in order to recommend similar content.

The smart TV box will be China exclusive at the initial stage and might launch globally at a later date. Xiaomi, however, hasn’t brought the Mi Box to the Indian market as of yet. There’s still a possibility that Indian consumers may finally get to see the Mi Box 4 alongside the Mi Smart TV.
