Those of realme want to compete face to face with Amazon in the entertainment sector, they have just presented their new proposal: realme Smart TV Stick.
Many of the televisions that are launched on the market today are smart and this means that they integrate several interesting features such as the possibility of installing applications or sending content from devices such as mobile phones. Yes indeed, there are still TVs that do not meet the appropriate smart features.
In these cases It is usual to bet on accessories that will give intelligence to the television or that will improve the general experience. Amazon has several of these products in its extensive catalog, but it seems that now companies like Xiaomi have also decided to compete in this sector and, the truth is that it is not the only one that has entered.
The Asian firm Realme presented its Realme 4K Smart TV Stick a few months ago, which came to compete directly with Amazon and Google products due to the combination of power and features. Now it has launched another product in the same line, although of a lower range and this would be the realme Smart TV Stick..
It may be a more restrained team, but it has the right characteristics to compete head-to-head with the Amazon Fire TV Stick. And, it is that, it is a device designed to turn a non-intelligent television into a connected one with access to the Internet, applications and, logically, to fashionable streaming services such as Disney + or HBO Max.
Being its main characteristic Full HD resolution or 1,902 x 1,080 pixels in streaming, somewhat fair on certain screen diagonals; but more than enough for some modest televisions that do not have their own operating system. In addition, the refresh rate they can access manages to offer 60 frames per second.
The technical parameters of the realme Smart TV Stick put on the table a configuration in which the ARM Cortex-A35 quad-core processor is accompanied by 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. It’s not a buoyant setup, but it may be more than enough for some users.
At the image quality level, the realme Smart TV Stick is compatible with HDR10 + so content playback is expected to have high dynamic range. The way to connect it to the television is through an HDMI 1.4 and the power is done using the microUSB port integrated in the body of the device.
The truth is that the realme Smart TV Stick sounds really good, but unlike its older brother, it does not integrate Google TV. Instead, it bets on its own interface that runs on top of Android TV 11. At the moment it has been presented in India as Gizmochina comments, we will update the information when it reaches our borders.
