Today, Amazon launched a brand new Fire TV line of products, including the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max, as well as two new Amazon-branded smart TVs. The new Fire TV Stick is currently available for pre-order on Amazon, and will officially release Oct. 7 on Amazon and Best Buy.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max (pre-order)
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max comes with the Fire TV Alexa Voice Remote, which includes built-in Alexa Voice features and is compatible with 4K UHD, HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos resolution. Compared to the Fire TV Stick 4K, this new version has 40 percent more power and a 1.8 gHz processor (compared to 1.7 gHz in the previous version). With the faster processor and 2 GB of RAM, loading apps and using the interface should be smoother. You can also connect to Echo Smart Speakers or Echo Studio for a surround-sound experience via Alexa Home Theater.
According to Amazon, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the most affordable streaming device with Wi-Fi 6 enabled, which should reduce lag in both streaming and gaming via Amazon Luna. In line with Amazon’s Climate Pledge, this Fire TV Stick comes with an Energy Star certification.
