Xiaomi Mi Box 4 & 4C 4K HDR TV Boxes Launched with Amlogic S905L Processor

Remember Amlogic S905L Processor?  Me neither, but I wrote about it in September 2016, with the processor being an updated version of Amlogic S905X without VP9 support, and adding HDMI 2.0b output with support for Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) HDR.

One reason most people won’t remember it is because so far, no TV boxes featured the processor, but this has now changed with Xiaomi introduced Mi Box 4 & 4c TV boxes for the Chinese market.

Xiaomi Mi Box 4c is the entry level model (Black color), and Mi Box 4 is slightly higher end with more memory and Bluetooth (White color), but both devices share most of the same specifications:

  • SoC –  Amlogic S905L quad core ARM Cortex-A53 @ up to 1.5GHz with penta-core Mali-450MP GPU @ up to 750 MHz
  • System Memory
    • Mi Box 4c – 1GB RAM
    • Mi Box 4 – 2GB RAM
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC flash
  • Video & Audio Output – HDMI 2.0b up to 4K @ 60 Hz, and AV port (composite video + sterro audio)
  • Audio
    • Mi Box 4c –  DTS-HD support
    • Mi Box 4 – Dolby Audio and DTS-HD support
  • Video Codecs – 4K H.265 @ 60 fps, 4K H.264 up to 30 fps, MPEG1/2/, VC1, DivX 4/5 up to 1080p60
  • Connectivity
    • Mi Box 4c – 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz)
    • Mi Box 4 – 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz) + Bluetooth 4.1 LE + EDR
  • USB – 1x USB 2.0 port
  • Power Supply –  5.2V/2.1A
  • Dimensions – 95 x 95 x 16 mm (ABS plastic case)
  • Weight – 145 grams

The device runs some version of Android supporting Chinese language (similar to Xiaomi Mi Box 3 Enhanced), and ships with an infrared remote control, batteries,  one HDMI cable, some instructions, and a power adapter.

 

While it’s interesting to find a TV box with Amlogic S905L, it will only be useful to end users in China, and maybe oversea Chinese wanting to watch Chinese series or movies from another country, provided they can find a VPN that works well enough.

Xiaomi Mi Box 4C will sell for 249 CNY (~$39 US), and Mi Box 4 for 349 CNY (~$55) starting on February 1, 2018. More details can be found in the product page (in Chinese)
