Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Pro, a new streaming device that supports 8K video decoding, has been launched in China. The streaming box is priced at CNY 399 (approximately Rs. 4,500) and is currently only available in China as the company has not announced any plans to launch the new product in global markets including India. The Mi Box 4S Pro is part of the same product line, which includes the Mi Box 4K, which was launched in India earlier this year at a price of Rs. 3,499.
My Box 4S Pro Price vs Competition
CNY 399 (approximately Rs. 4,500) Price, The My Box 4S Pro Slightly more expensive than My Box 4K, And comes with significantly better features. 8K gives the device a significant edge over competing devices such as a support device for video decoding Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K And the Apple TV 4K, as well as the Mi Box 4K.
Mi Box 4S Pro Features and Specifications
The main feature of the Mi Box 4S Pro is the 8K video decoding, which is not currently available on any other popular streaming device. While not sure how this works at the moment, the Mi Box 4S Pro can replay 8K video content available locally on supported televisions. Currently, major streaming services do not provide content in any 8K resolution, so there is nothing more that can be done with this feature.
The Mi Box 4S Pro runs MIUI for the TV, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage for apps and app data. Any global version of the device will not be shipped to TV with Android TV as well as MIUI like the Mi Box 4K in India. As 8K TVs are more expensive and 8K content is not widely available, the specific feature set of this device may not be as attractive all over the world now.
