Amazon unveils Fire TV Stick 4K with Dolby Vision, Atmos & HDR10+

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K With All New Alexa Voice Remote Launched in India

The new Fire TV Stick 4K is over 80 percent more powerful than the current gen Fire TV Stick, thanks to its new quad core, 1.7GHz processor.

The company claims that the remote can control power and volume on thousands of televisions, apart from Fire TV devices in India.

The Fire Stick 4K, as the name suggests, is capable of showing UHD pictures, which will come as a relief for many users of Prime Video, as a lot of its original shows are filmed in the new format.

Residents in small boats rushed to the crash site to save passengers and crew members from the sinking aircraft, an official said. However, Jaynes said the only scenario he can imagine is that it hit the end of the runway and continued into the water.

Amazon already sells two 4K streaming devices - the Fire TV 4K ($69.99) and Fire TV Cube 4K ($119.99) - but today the Seattle-based tech company has revealed a gadget that brings 4K to a more affordable form factor: the Fire TV Stick 4K. And it now comes with dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons, along with the ability to use voice commands to find and control content. Amazon's newest Alexa Voice Remote with Bluetooth and multidirectional infrared technology is included as well, and users can also opt for hands-free voice control via a separate Echo device.

The Fire TV Stick 4K includes support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos when connected to a compatible home audio system. “Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an wonderful picture.

Amazon's new Fire TV Stick 4K is effectively replacing the company's Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD, which the company introduced past year. The Alexa Voice Remote can also be pre-ordered for $29.99 or $119.99 if paired with the Fire TV Cube. At the time, Amazon and Toshiba said that the extra buttons were added after owner feedback, though it seemed a little odd that they didn't then carry that over to Amazon's own Fire TV line-up. It won't arrive in the UK, Germany or India until 14 November, however. The same shipping timeline goes for the single Alexa Voice Remote.
