Unveiled alongside Google's subtly refreshed Chromecast, the Xiaomi Mi Box S goes after the likes of the Apple TV 4K with a substantially lower price tag.

The Xiaomi Mi Box S features Android TV based on Android 8.1.

Android TV is taking another stab at the living room.

There's a new remote control with this smart TV box. The Box comes with a powerful processor that lets you play Android games as well which could be downloaded from the Google Play store.

Djokovic will play South Africa's seventh seed Kevin Anderson and said he was arrowing in on Rafael Nadal's top ranking. I mean, he really caught fire, I thought. "I am feeling very fresh and have a lot of energy so I'll have no excuses".

Other than that, the Xiaomi Mi Box S supports 4K footage at 60fps, and most other major formats including H.265, H.264, VP9, Dolby, DTS, Mp4, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, and many more.

The Mi Box S is available for pre-order starting today for $60 and will begin shipping to customers on October 19. Along with the formal introduction, Xiaomi and Google confirmed the Mi Box S is coming to the USA, and is actually available to pre-order starting today ahead of its scheduled October 19 launch date. You can also use the assistant to find a movie/show, ask it to play a song, or even ask it the weather.

Otherwise, you'll find a quad-core CPU with 4K video decoding, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.2, and an HDMI, audio out, and USB 2.0 port. It looks like it has volume control as well, plus a dedicated Google Assistant button and all of your typical Android TV navigation keys. As of now, there is no information on the launch of the Xiaomi Mi Box S what so ever. But the Android TV box market is now a sparse landscape with very few options available for consumers to choose from. The Mi Box S has dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 for connectivity. This low price, coupled with the lack of choices available at this price point, will mean the Mi Box S is likely to appeal to a number of new buyers, as well as those looking to upgrade from the original Mi Box.
