Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K With All-New Alexa Voice Remote Launched in India
Amazon has brought its latest 4K supported Amazon Fire TV Stick to the Indian market at a price of Rs 5,999. The new Fire TV Stick which comes with 4K support also has Alexa Voice integration, which allows users to quickly search content hands-free. Amazon unveiled the Fire TV Stick 4K in the United States a couple of weeks ago, and now, it has brought the same to the sub-continent.
Notably, Amazon launched the Alexa Voice Remote at a standalone price of Rs 1,999, but the new 4K model comes bundled with the remote itself. That said, the Alexa Voice Remote can be used with the earlier launched Amazon Fire TV Stick as well. As the name itself suggests, the newly introduced streaming dongle comes with support for 4K streaming, along with Dolby Vision HDR, HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Atmos surround sound.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is powered by the 1.7GHz quad-core processor that provides fast streaming experience, quicker load times, and brilliant picture quality. The device gives you access to thousands of apps and Alexa skills, along with thousands of movies and TV show episodes. You also have the ability to pair any of the Echo devices with Fire TV for easy control and hands-free usage.
The Fire TV Stick 4K and the Alexa Voice Remote would start shipping in India from November 14. The Alexa Voice Remote is available for standalone purchase at Rs 1,999, which will be really helpful to the existing Amazon Fire TV Stick users. It can be pre-booked from Amazon.in. The same Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is priced at $50 in the United States, but it’s priced a tad higher in India though.
The Fire TV Stick 4K also comes with a new Alexa Voice Remote, which includes Bluetooth and multidirectional infrared connectivity that also works with your television, AV receiver and cable set-top box equipment. It includes Alexa that lets you access content on the Fire TV Stick 4K using just your voice. The Alexa Voice Remote has dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons to control your TV, soundbar, or other AV equipment – alongside the iconic voice button and other Fire TV Stick controls.
“It is a complete 4K solution our customers are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor,” says Marc Whitten, Vice President, Amazon Fire TV, in a press statement. “The team invented an entirely new antenna technology and combined that with a powerful 802.11ac Wi-Fi to optimize for the best possible 4K UHD streaming experience, even in congested network environments.”
