Amazon announces the new Fire TV with 4K HDR support


Amazon has had a lot of success with their Fire TV set-top boxes, but the Chromecast is still king when it comes to affordable internet TV. Today, Amazon announced the new Fire TV. It’s a dongle, like the Chromecast, but it still operates like a traditional set-top box with a remote.

As you can see in the photo above, the Amazon dongle looks very similar to the Chromecast. It’s simply a box with an HDMI cable. attached. It has the traditional Amazon remote with voice search functionality. The new Fire TV supports 4K HDR at 60 fps and Dolby Atmos. It has a 1.5GHz processor and WiFi (of course).

This new Fire TV dongle bridges the gap between the Fire TV set-top box and Fire TV stick. The set-top box can do 4K Ultra HD, but the stick can only do 1080. The new Fire TV merges these two devices together into a nice compact body. You can pre-order the new Fire TV for $69.99.
