29 June 2018 3

Chinese consumer electronics maker Xiaomi is expected to release a new version of its Mi Box streaming device in the US. Well, a new FCC filing is hinting at this possibility. The streamer goes by the model number MD-22-AB, appears to be based on Google’s Android TV platform.

According to the FCC filing, the device could ship with a slightly redesigned Bluetooth remote control. There’s also shortcut button for Netflix. The remote control manual describes this key as the shortcut key for the live TV. The remote also comes with an integrated microphone and a microphone button for access to the Google Assistant.


Looking at the FCC filing, it seems like the form factor of the Chinese model and this model which is going to be announced for the US will be the same.

The FCC certification of the device alludes that the launch is imminent.

In related news, Xiaomi has made available the Android 8.0 Oreo update to its existing Mi Box in the US. It was an unexpected move, considering no Android 7.0 Nougat OS was fed to the device before. The interface now offers new home screen launcher of Android TV that makes content channels more visible. The update brings some minor interface changes and brings performance tweaks.
