The new 4K streaming stick from Amazon features a quad-core 1.7GHz MediaTek chip that is over 80 percent faster than its predecessor. "We've listened to our customers and pushed to deliver the complete 4K solution they are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor", said Amazon fire TV vice president Marc Whitten. It comes with 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision and HDR10+ titles support, which will appeal to a lot of content viewers out there. The Amazon Fire TV Cube will also include the new Alexa Voice Remote starting October 31. It has a small Fire TV dongle capable of playing 4K video and supported HDR 10. Use your voice to control your Fire TV with the Echo, by giving Alexa instructions like searching for movies and pausing your show. The device can be pre-ordered effective immediately for$49.99, and will ship in the US and Canada at the end of the month. Amazon also has a checklist to make sure that the remote's buttons are compatible with your TV, cable/satellite box, sound bar, or A/V receiver, though it expects most popular brands to be supported.

Amazon has launched an upgraded version of its Fire TV stick in India. The company will also include the new remote with the Fire TV Cube, and it is backward-compatible with existing Fire TV streaming devices. The new remote will also start shipping on October 31.
