Almost a year ago, Amazon introduced the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K , an improved version of its media player that added support for 4K, HDR and a remote compatible with Alexa. However, as usual, the device was launched only in the United States. After a year available in the North American market, it finally arrives in Spain .
The new Amazon player is ideal for those without a Smart TV. It supports 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, HDR, and HDR10 + . It also supports Dolby Atmos sound, although only on select Prime Video titles at the moment. Through this small stick we can access applications such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, DAZN, Atresplayer, RTVE A la carte or Movistar + with the highest quality. And all this with a really attractive price, since to celebrate its launch we can get it with a 25% discount. Let's go over its characteristics better.
4K HDR compatible
Until now, Amazon had the Fire TV Stick Basic Edition in the Spanish market. This dongle offers access to streaming applications, but with maximum FHD quality. Now, along with a small renewal of the basic model, Amazon has brought to Spain the model capable of working with 4K HDR images .
The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is equipped with a more powerful processor than its little brother. Specifically, it has a Quad-Core chip that works at 1.7 GHz . The GPU is an IMG GE8300 and has 8 GB of internal storage.
In terms of connectivity, it includes WiFi 802.11ac dual band and dual antenna (MIMO) that allows faster wireless data transfer. It also has Bluetooth 4.2, plus an HDMI output and a micro USB for power.
As for its playback capabilities, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K supports 4K UHD resolution up to 60fps and with all HDR formats on the market (Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10 + and HLG). It is also capable of bringing Dolby Atmos sound to a compatible surround audio system, although for now only with the Prime Video application.
Alexa integrated into the remote
In addition to support for 4K HDR images, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K arrives with another important first. And it includes a remote with integrated Alexa . This allows us to operate the device through voice commands. We can search for a movie or series, advance or delay playback, raise and lower the volume and, ultimately, do almost everything we would do with Alexa.
In addition, we will be able to control all the devices that are compatible with Alexa , such as surveillance cameras, lights, thermostats and other digital home devices.
In short, a more complete model ideal for those looking for the best image quality when playing streaming services. The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is already on sale in Spain with a special launch price of 45 euros . Its official price is 60 euros.
