In the recently held Amazon hardware event, the company has launched a lot of new products that were not expected and some that were. Out of the expected ones, the company has launched a new Fire TV stick and a Fire TV stick lite, with the first one being the update to the original Fire TV stick. The new and updated Fire TV stick will not have a faster SoC chip form the previous Fire TV Stick 4K. It will provide a much faster performance with the new quad-core CPU and better GPU.
The new chipset on the Fire TV Stick will allow the users to open and close the application much more quickly. It will also include features like new dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi for a faster and more stable connection. The new Fire TV Stick will support 1080p at 60Hz but it now supports HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG content. However, you will not get any support for Dolby Atmos. It will still carry the same remote without any kind of modification to design or function.
Another variant to this product, the Fire TV Stick Lite will be identical to the new Fire TV Stick on design and the only difference that you will be able to notice will be in the remote. It comes with an Alexa Voice Remote Lite, that has all the basic functions you would expect, without the volume and mute buttons for controlling the television. Due to this, the device is $10 cheaper and is priced around $30, which the new Fire TV Stick is priced at $40.
