The Mi Box 4S Max, which provides significant storage and RAM upgrades over its competitors, has been added by Xiaomi to its growing lineup of Android TV set-top boxes.

Update 06/13: As we had anticipated, it seems that the Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Max will only be offered in the home country of the tech giant. This intriguing Android TV set-top box will only be offered in China, Xiaomi has officially stated, according to Android Authority .

We do not presently have any plans to release the Xiaomi Box 4S Max in foreign countries.

Given that Xiaomi has a significant product selection that is only accessible through official channels in China, this is not a huge surprise. The only way Western fans will be able to purchase the Mi Box 4S Max this time around appears to be through third-party retailers, who frequently give the option to import such products.

The Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Max, which was officially unveiled in China (via APCTV ), resembles earlier models in terms of appearance but offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard. Xiaomi has made the conscious decision to eliminate the annoying storage and performance restrictions of Google’s own flagship Chromecast with Google TV on this streaming device.

The Amlogic S905X3 CPU, which makes use of the Amlogic Video Engine 10, powers the Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Max. Unfortunately, this implies that the AV1 codec is not supported in this situation, but Xiaomi claims that it can still stream material at 4K 60fps and even at 8K resolution even though no frame rate has been set.

An HDMI 2.1 port, a USB 3.0 port, and an in-the-box remote are among the inputs and outputs. The remote is also touted to support the Google Assistant with an integrated microphone. That’s a fairly typical allocation for a streaming device for the home like this. Here, MIUI for TV is pre-installed on top of Android TV, but as it is presently only accessible in China, many of the most well-liked Western streaming services are not supported.

On its official storefront in China , Xiaomi has offered the Mi Box 4S Max for 499 yuan, or roughly $75. Even though that pricing may be particularly alluring, it’s unclear whether Xiaomi will release its set-top box outside of the area.
