The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K was launched in India on Thursday, May 9. The Amazon Fire TV Stick comes with some significant improvements over older generations of streaming devices. The new Fire TV Stick 4K comes with a remote that has dedicated buttons for Amazon’s video and music streaming platforms, as well as Netflix. There is also a dedicated button for all apps. The tech giant first introduced the third-generation Fire Stick in 2022, but this is the first time it has released a streaming device with support for 4K video quality.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Price, Availability

Just like its predecessors, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K comes in a matte black color option. The device is priced at Rs. 5,999 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon’s website. The company said the streaming device will go on sale from May 13. Apart from Amazon, the Fire TV Stick 4K can also be purchased through the online and offline stores of Croma, Reliance Digital and Vijay Sales once it goes on sale.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K features

The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, as the name suggests, includes streaming of 4K Ultra HD content and supports HDR10+. Additionally, it also comes with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio. The company claims that this is the most powerful streaming device in Amazon’s Fire TV series available in India.

Under the hood, the Fire TV Stick 4K packs a 1.7GHz quad-core processor that Amazon says makes it 30 percent more powerful than previous generations. It offers Wi-Fi 6 connectivity with support for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands. The new Alexa Voice Remote now also includes dedicated app buttons. Users can find buttons for Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Amazon Music.

Additionally, an Apps button opens all other installed video streaming apps. Just like its predecessor, the remote comes with voice input powered by Alexa, and users can speak what they want to watch and the virtual assistant will display it on the screen. Users can also wirelessly connect their Echo devices to the Fire TV Stick 4K via the Alexa app.

Fire TV Stick 4K offers access to more than 12,000 apps through Amazon’s Appstore, including popular apps like Disney+ Hotstar, Zee5 and Jio Cinema. Users can watch content through all available apps as long as they have a subscription. They can also enjoy free and ad-supported content on Amazon MiniTV, YouTube and MX Player. The company has also included a low-power mode that it claims will save power when the device goes into sleep or standby mode due to inactivity.
