Xiaomi certainly isn’t resting on its laurels as it recently launched one of the most talked about handsets in 2016 — Xiaomi MI5 — and the Chinese company has repopulated every shelf category with fresh new devices.
First to follow the Mi 5 was the company’s first USB Type-C port featured powerband and now the OEM is on the verge of launching a new device, this time in the form of a TV box.
The TV box is called Mi Box 3 Enhanced Edition and it is essentially the bigger brother to the Mi Box Mini as it measures 4” x 4” x 1”. At the heart of the device is MediaTek’s MT 8693 hexa-core chipset that in the configuration of two ARM Cortex-A72 CPUs and four ARM Cortex-A52 cores, the GPU is a PowerVR GX6250.
The device runs 2GB of RAM that is coupled with an 8GB eMMC 5.0 flash storage with two USB 2.0 ports and one HDMI output with support for 60Hz 4K video.
The Mi Box 3 Enhanced Edition will be available in China for something close to $61 which is quite reasonable considering that the device houses some pretty powerful hardware.
Buyers residing outside China should be aware that most of Xiaomi’s TV boxes come with services specifically suited for the Chinese users but Xiaomi is said to be working on improving the software to suit international customers.
With the device officially only going to be available in China, there are some third-party stores that are accepting pre-orders and those interested can head on to GeekBuying.
