Xiaomi’s new Mi Box 4S Pro supports 8K video playback

Over the past few years, Xiaomi has released a great lineup of set-top boxes, from the Mi Box 4S to the Mi TV Stick. Now, the company is releasing another streaming device, and it features support for 8K video playback.

Named the Mi Box 4S Pro, Xiaomi’s newest set-top box is one of the only 8K-capable set-top boxes available — and at such an affordable price, is very hard to beat. It features HDMI 2.1, 16GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and supports Bluetooth voice controls. It also sports Xiaomi’s MIUI, which should be familiar to anyone who has used one of the company’s streaming devices in the past.

Xiaomi’s Mi Box 4S Pro is a notable upgrade from the Mi Box 4S, which featured 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and support for 4K 60fps video playback. That device also supported voice controls, Dolby Audio and DTS Sound, making it one of the most feature-packed streaming devices for its price. Adding support for 8K video playback is an obvious play for the future.

Unfortunately, not much else is known about the Mi Box 4S Pro, including what processor it runs. But that likely won’t matter to people when they see it supports 8K video playback.

The Mi Box 4S Pro will retail for 399 yuan (about $60) when it launches in China. Preorders for the device will be available beginning November 5. As of now, it’s unclear if Xiaomi’s latest set-top box will launch in any markets outside of China, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled if it does.
