This is Amazon’s new $70 Fire TV with 4K and HDR support

If we were starting to feel like it’d been a while given Amazon upgraded a Fire TV (the company’s answer to things like a Chromecast and Apple TV), we wouldn’t be wrong. The final large ascent a Fire TV box got was during a finish of 2015.

Until today!

Amazon has only announced an all-new Fire TV among a array of rapid-fire product debuts function right now in Seattle.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • It supports 4K and HDR, doing fortitude of adult to 2160p during 60fps
  • Dolby Atmos support
  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi
  • 1.5 Ghz quad-core CPU
  • It’ll come with an Alexa-powered remote for voice control, though can also be tranquil by Echos around your room

It’ll sell for $70 on a possess when it ships after this year, or we can buy it for $80 in a gold with an Echo Dot. That’s $20 reduction than a previous-generation Fire TV, $100+ reduction than a 4K Apple TV and a same cost as Google’s Chromecast Ultra, that doesn’t come with a dedicated remote. (There’s also a Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot gold for $60 that’s available, if we cite that form factor). Amazon is pulling hard here.

The device isn’t shipping until Oct 25, though is already accessible for pre-order from Amazon’s website.
