Mi TV Stick specifications

The Mi TV Stick is powered by a quad-core processor coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage for apps. Oddly, it only supports full HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels resolution) playback at 60fps even though UHD/ 4K resolution has become rather popular. The Bluetooth remote control comes pre-installed with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video buttons and there’s a dedicated Google Assistant button as well for enabling voice commands.
