Amazon Launches New Fire TV Stick with 4K, Dolby Atmos and More

Amazon Launches New Fire TV Stick with 4K, Dolby Atmos and More

"Over 80 percent more powerful than the best-selling Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K features a new quad core, 1.7GHz processor, delivering a fast streaming experience, quicker load times, and brilliant picture quality".

Per usual, there's not much in the way of ports on the Fire TV Stick.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is priced at $49.99 and will begin shipping in the U.S. and Canada on October 31. While it made headlines for lowering the price of entry for 4K streaming devices this year, there are still some issues with the product line-up. Last month, for instance, Roku unveiled new 4K devices starting at just $39.99 - $10 more if you want the voice remote. The company announced today the new Fire TV Stick 4K and an updated Alexa Voice Remote.

These new standards support dynamic metadata, which can offer more detail in the bright and dark spots of an image (if you're watching a movie or video on a compatible TV, that is). Notably, the new peripheral finally features its own volume, mute and power buttons.




Amazon India on Wednesday brought its "Fire TV Stick 4K" and "Alexa Voice Remote" with TV control together for Rs 5,999 to India.

In addition to supporting Dolby Vision, the new Fire TV Stick supports Dolby Atmos for audio. Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an wonderful picture.

The Fire TV Stick 4K comes with a new Alexa Voice Remote. Amazon will sell it separately for $29.99, and also begin shipping to consumers on October 31.

The refreshed Alexa Voice Remote allows you to control TVs, AV equipment, and cable boxes through Bluetooth and multi-directional infrared. "Our existing remote has voice search has voice search capability and all of the Fire TV control on it but now we are adding the TV controls into the same remote".
