Amazon Introduces Fire TV Stick 4K

The new 4K streaming stick from Amazon features a quad-core 1.7GHz MediaTek chip that is over 80 percent faster than its predecessor.

Of course, new hardware isn't the only trick up the Fire TV Stick's sleeve. Amazon claims that the Fire TV Stick 4K is the first to feature Dolby Vision tech.

"Plus, the all-new Alexa Voice Remote lets you control your entertainment experience and use your voice to quickly find the content you want". It will retail for $49.99 and include the new Alexa Voice Remote. As for the Alexa support on Fire TV devices, Amazon says that you can easily find, search and control movies, TV shows and apps. There's still support for far-field voice recognition which was added to the Fire TV previous year, letting you control your content with Alexa by pairing the Fire TV Stick 4K with any Echo device. The Amazon Fire TV Cube will also include the new Alexa Voice Remote starting October 31. And it comes with support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ titles. It also sports dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons in addition to voice control support for finding content.

The firm has also confirmed that as a part of the update, Amazon will bring Alexa support on all the existing Fire TV devices in India from the same day.

The Alexa Voice Remote will start shipping on the same dates for $30 / £30 / €30 when bought separately. It will start shipping in the United Kingdom and Germany on November 14 for £50 / €60.
