According to Amazon, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is 40% more powerful than the “old” Fire TV Stick 4K. The new dongle features a 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 8GB internal memory and 2GB RAM.

In terms of features, the device plays 4K Ultra HD videos with Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos audio. The new model brings remote control with microphone and Alexa assistant, making it possible to control the device with just the voice.

In addition to the system upgrade, the suggested price of US$ 55 (about R$ 290 in direct conversion) of the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is another great attraction.

New entertainment option

The debut of the Fire TV Stick 4K Max does not mean the replacement of the Fire TV Stick 4K model. With the proposal to offer different options to consumers, Amazon says that the two products will continue to be sold.

In addition to the two devices mentioned, users can still choose between the 3rd generation Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick Lite and Fire TV Cube. This last item is the only one with settings superior to the recent release.
