Realme readies a Google TV-powered challenger to the Fire TV Stick 4K Max

The device could debut in India sometime early next month.

What you need to know

  • Realme's first streaming stick will be powered by Google TV.
  • The device is set to launch in India during Flipkart's Big Billion Days sale.
  • Key features and specs of the Realme 4K Google TV Stick are yet to be revealed.

After launching its first notebook and Android tablet, Realme could soon take the wraps off its first-ever streaming device. Although the BBK-owned company is yet to confirm the launch of the device, tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) has spotted the Realme 4K Google TV Stick in a poster for Flipkart's upcoming Big Billion Days sale.

As its name suggests, the device will support 4K resolution and run on the Google TV platform. In terms of design, the device appears fairly similar to the third-generation Amazon Fire TV Stick. Unfortunately, however, the poster doesn't reveal anything else about the Realme 4K Google TV Stick.

The Chromecast with Google TV is currently the only streaming device running the new Google TV interface. However, Google plans to extend Google TV support to the best Android TV devices eventually — including NVIDIA's Shield TV and Xiaomi's Mi Box S. Google TV is expected to fully replace Android TV by the end of 2022.

Even though Realme hasn't started teasing the launch of the streaming stick, the poster confirms it will be released during the Big Billion Days sale in India. The sale event is expected to kick off early next month.

The Realme 4K Google TV Stick's biggest rival will be the recently launched Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. The 4K streaming stick brings an impressive 40% improvement in performance compared to its predecessor, along with new features such as Wi-Fi 6 and Dolby Vision support.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
