Amazon Fire TV Stick, Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. These are the three devices that, until now, Amazon offered users to turn any television into a Smart TV and consume content on demand. Three models, which are not few, to which today we add one more: el Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max.
It is, according to Amazon, the “best Fire TV Stick to date.” The company promises 40% more power than the Fire TV Stick 4K, a faster processor and better connectivity thanks to the incorporation of WiFi 6. Its price? 64.99 euros and in pre-sale from today.
More power, Dolby Vision and better connectivity
For practical purposes, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max does not change much with respect to the other models. It’s a dongle HDMI that we will have to connect to the TV, which has a USB type C port and includes a remote control. We can use this to control the TV, invoke Alexa and quickly access Prime Video, Netflix, Disney + and Prime Music.
Inside we find a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor along with 2 GB of RAM. According to Amazon, it is 40% more powerful than the Fire TV Stick 4K and offers faster and smoother browsing. In addition, thanks to the MediaTek MT7921LS chip, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max supports WiFi 6.
This will allow, at least on paper, a more stable content playback even with many connected devices as long as we have WiFi 6 at home. And speaking of connection, having Alexa we can control the home automation, start applications quickly and give orders by voice.
In terms of compatibility, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max supports 4K Ultra HD playback, HDR, HDR10 + and Dolby Vision. If we talk about sound, the implementation of Dolby Atmos stands out. This is not exactly new, as the Fire TV Stick 4K already supported these technologies.
Finally, and with regard to applications, the catalog does not seem to be a problem. Amazon does not limit the Stick to its own services, but also allows you to download Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Disney +, DAZN, Atresplayer, Mitele, and more subscription services. The same with music, as Amazon Music, Spotify and Apple Music apps are available.
