Xiaomi's global VP Hugo Barra revealed that the company will make its way to the U.S. market in the near future, but it's going to be a while before we see the brand's stellar phones. That said, Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi Box, a set-top box running Android TV that supports 4K playback. According to TechCrunch, the Mi Box will make its debut in October for under $100.
The Mi Box is powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor and Mali-450 GPU along with 2GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage and Wi-Fi ac. There's HDMI 2.0a out, HDR, Google Cast compatibility, and the device can output 4K at 60fps along with Dolby Digital Plus audio. You also a Bluetooth-enabled remote, as well as a controller to play games on the Android TV set-top box.
The Mi Box will be the ideal device for Xiaomi to gauge consumer interest in the U.S. The company will make its phones available in the country at some point, but in the meantime it is testing the waters with accessories like fitness bands, earphones, and battery packs.
