Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Pro launched with 8K support

Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Pro, a new streaming device with support for 8K video decoding, has been launched in China. The streaming box costs CNY 399 (around Rs 4,500) and is currently only available in China. The company does not announce any plans to launch the new product in global markets including India. The Mi Box 4S Pro is part of the same range that includes the Mi Box 4K, which was launched in India for Rs earlier this year. 3,499.

Mi Box 4S Pro price against competition

Price at CNY 399 (approx Rs. 4,500) the Mi Box 4S Pro is only a bit more expensive than the Mi Box 4K and has significantly improved features. By supporting 8K video decoding, the device has a significant advantage over competing devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K and Apple TV 4K as well as over the Mi Box 4K.

Technical data and features of the Mi Box 4S Pro

The main feature of the Mi Box 4S Pro is 8K video decoding which is not currently available on any other popular streaming device. While it’s not exactly clear how this will work at the moment, it is likely that the Mi Box 4S Pro will be able to play locally available 8K video content on a supported TV. Currently, none of the major streaming services offer content in 8K resolution, so there isn’t much else that can be done with this feature.

The Mi Box 4S Pro runs MIUI for TV with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage for apps and app data. Any global version of the device will likely ship with Android TV rather than MIUI for TV, much like the Mi Box 4K in India. However, the specific feature set of this device is unlikely to have much appeal around the world right now, as 8K TVs are quite expensive and 8K content is not widely available.
