Amazon has introduced a new version of its popular Fire TV streaming stick.
Fire TV Stick 4K Max is 40% more powerful than Fire TV Stick 4K and features a new quad-core 1.8GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. This enables apps to start faster and navigation to appear more fluid.
It’s also the first Amazon streaming media player to offer Wi-Fi 6 support and uses the latest Mediatek MT7921LS Wi-Fi 6 chipset, which means smoother streaming in 4K when multiple Wi-Fi 6-connected devices are in use.
Fire TV Stick 4K Max supports 4K UHD, HDR, and HDR10+ streaming, as well as Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It comes with the latest Alexa Voice Remote to search for content directly. The four preset buttons have been assigned to Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon music.
Content is also available from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Apple TV, BT Sport and UKTV Play amongst others.
The device can be wirelessly connected to compatible devices such as Echo Studio Echo Studio or a pair of Echo (4th Gen) smart speakers for immersive sound, including multichannel Dolby audio formats
It also has a Low Power Mode to intelligently conserve energy when it goes to sleep and deliver energy savings over the lifetime of the device.
Fire TV Stick 4K Max is available for pre-order priced at £54.99. It begins shipping on October 7.
