The 2019 Fire TV Cube comes with a new hexa-core processor making it more than twice as powerful as the first-generation Fire TV Cube. This new cube offers Dolby Vision HDR, HDR 10+, and 60 fps 4K. Amazon will once again include far-field voice control built directly into the new Fire TV cube, so you can use Alexa to control your TV even if you don’t have the remote.

With more power and Alexa integration, this streaming device is designed to anchor your cord cutting setup and help you control smart devices throughout your home.
