The Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is a media streamer that plugs into the HDMI port of a TV allowing you to stream content from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, and other sources using Google’s Android TV software.

Officially announced in December, the Xiaomi TV Stick 4K is now available globally for $58 when you order from AliExpress.

Note that this model ships with a European charger, but you should be able to plug the included micro USB to USB-A cable into most USB power adapters.

The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick 4K ships with an Android 11-based operating system and features support for Android TV features including Google Assistant, voice controls, and Chromecast capabilities (allowing you to find music or videos on your phone and then send them to your TV via the stick).

With 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and support for 4K video at 60 Hz and Bluetooth 5.0, the new model is a step up over the older 1080p version which sells for $40 and runs Android 9, has 1GB of RAM, and supports Bluetooth 4.2.

That said, there’s no shortage of inexpensive 4K-ready media streamers these days, and the new Xiaomi TV Stick 4K will have to compete with the Chromecast with Google TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K and 4K Max, Roku Express 4K+, and Onn UHD Streaming Device, all of which have list prices of $55 or less.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for Xiaomi’s new 4K media streamer:

  1. Very bad quality product.
    I press body for conect hdmi cable after this mi stick 4k dont work anymore .
    Auto restart loop.
    I lost my mobey buy this product.

  2. Is this running 32 bit or 64 bit Android? Looking for an Android TV that can run arm64 apps without paying the price for a Shield.

    1. Is there still 32bit Version of Android around??? 🤯
      I imagine all versions after ~2015/16 are 64bit..

      1. It’s still around. Some 64-bit devices even run 32-bit Android OS. I’ve seen this in some budget phones at least as recently as 2019 or 2020 and I doubt it’s limited to just phones.

    2. Right. Both Google Chromecast with Google TV and Walmart’s Onn Android TV (despite 64-bit CPU) run arm Android apps, not arm64. It would be fantastic if this new Xiaomi TV Stick 4K ran arm64 apps for such a low price, and would appreciate if anyone who already picked up the device could check

  3. any performance (or at least hardware) comparison with Goovle Chromecast with Google TV?
