“We are thrilled to bring Mi Box to our fans in the U.S. in collaboration with Google. This is a significant milestone for Xiaomi, as it is our first opportunity to demonstrate to consumers here in America the power of what makes Xiaomi extraordinary: our promise of innovation for everyone. We believe everyone is entitled to benefit from technological breakthroughs, and Mi Box is a reflection of that belief: an incredible entertainment experience at an unprecedented price of $69, less than the cost of a single night out for two,” said Hugo Barra, Vice President, Xiaomi Global.
Xiaomi Mi Box is powered by a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU coupled with Mali 450 GPU. There is 2GB RAM, 8GB flash storage and uses Microsoft’s hardware based DRM technology for rich viewing experience. Xiaomi says the system protects 4K and HDR content and delivers smoother 4K video content.
Xiaomi, which has been selling its products primarily in the Asian markets, is now expanding the offering to the US market. The company is also likely to debut its smartphones in the US as well.
