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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
