The first to reach since final yr’s Chromecast
We had been actually impressed by final yr’s Chromecast with Google TV. Not solely did the included distant immensely enhance shopping and streaming reveals and flicks, however the brand new UI supplied a superb portal for including content material to your watchlist. Since then, different producers — together with Walmart — have made some great Android TV containers, however we haven’t seen any new Google TV choices past the Chromecast. That’s lastly altering subsequent week, with an organization you may not have anticipated.
Realme is launching its “4K Smart Google TV Stick” on October thirteenth, and on paper, it seems like a reasonably nice different to anything available on the market (through XDA Developers). As the title implies, it’s able to outputting 4K video at as much as 60FPS, together with HDR10+ and HDMI 2.1 help. The stick itself appears to be like fairly unassuming, with a matte black end and the same old USB-C port for energy.
As far as software program goes, the title itself offers it away: it’s operating Google TV, similar to final yr’s Chromecast. That grants customers the entire traditional streaming apps, together with Assistant for voice-powered search and typing. We’ve seen TVs from Sony and TCL upgraded with this interface, however competing streaming sticks have been caught utilizing the plain Android TV UI to date.
Even although Realme has a teaser web site up, there are a couple of lingering unanswered questions on this gadget. We don’t know the place on the earth it’ll particularly be bought — though any area the place Realme merchandise are normally discovered appears probably — or how a lot it’ll price. We additionally haven’t gotten a have a look at the distant but both, leaving us questioning what media companies is perhaps included by default.
Luckily, we don’t have to attend an excessive amount of longer for solutions to all our burning questions. Realme will reveal every part concerning the gadget this upcoming Wednesday, and in case you don’t really feel like ready, you may join electronic mail notifications for extra data.
Seriously, go do it, why aren’t you in your automotive but?
