  • The new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

"Plus, Fire TV Stick 4K gives you access to the vast catalog of content now available on Fire TV including thousands of 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ titles", says Amazon.

"Plus, the all-new Alexa Voice Remote lets you control your entertainment experience and use your voice to quickly find the content you want".

The new remote control also comes with additional power, volume and mute buttons, that will enable users to control compatible televisions with a single remote. It is the first streaming media stick available with Dolby Vision.

It features a new 1.7GHz processor, which is a faster chip than the 1.5GHz silicon in the 2017 Fire TV. Customers in Japan will be able to get their hands on the new streaming stick by the end of the year, we're told.

The Alexa Voice Remote is said to support Bluetooth, multidirectional infrared technology along with cloud-based service. Current Fire TV device users can buy the new remote separately for $29.99, and it will be available at the same time as the Fire TV Stick 4K. The updated Fire TV Stick is $10 more expensive than previous generations, but for the price hike, you are getting a lot of new things.

Marc Whitten, Vice President, Amazon Fire TV shares the following statement.

It will begin shipping on October 31 in the United States and Canada. The device is available for pre-order from the website and will start shipping from November 14.
