Google Home is likely to stand out as the most memorable new piece of hardware revealed at I/O 2016 but away from the spotlight, Google added some new televisions and set-top boxes to its Android TV lineup.

The most notable of the bunch is a new set-top box from Chinese electronics maker Xiaomi called the Mi Box.

The Mi Box is powered by a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 2.0GHz, Mali 450 graphics running at 750MHz and 2GB of RAM.

There s also 8GB of eMMC flash memory on board, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 / 3.0.

A Bluetooth-powered voice remote accepts two AAA batteries.

There s even an optional Bluetooth gamepad called the Mi Game Controller

The product page and announcement on Google s Android blog doesn t mention a price or release date but we do know the set-top box is headed to the US.
