Xiaomi Mi Box Android TV appears in the wild with a $69 price tag

The latest Google-friendly set-top box supports 4K video, HDR content, and includes a Bluetooth voice remote.

A savvy buyer spotted the forthcoming Xiaomi Mi Android TV box for sale at a Wal-Mart recently, even though the company still lists the set-top box as “coming soon” on the promo page.

Not only did this quick-thinking individual grab some pictures of the merchandise, he also uploaded an unboxing video to YouTube. Nicely done.

The $69 price makes it a pretty tempting offer, considering that Xiaomi says the Mi Box will stream in 4K, display HDR content, and support both a Bluetooth remote with voice commands and a game controller.

That price also matches the rumors of an alleged Chromecast Ultra that would offer 4K streaming, all the extras that would come from a dedicated Android TV box may be something to consider.

Why this matters: Android TV hasn’t taken off at the level of Chromecast, but the platform is getting more attention with dedicated apps and a growing games catalogue. With the demise of the Nexus Player, Xiaomi may have the ideal low-cost option for those thinking of checking it out.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
