New Fire TV Cube
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.
We’ll have a full review of the new Fire TV Cube after it’s released on October 10, 2019.
Fire TV Stick 4K
With more power than previous models and support for 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, the Fire TV Stick 4K was designed to allow users to enjoy a more complete 4K Ultra HD streaming experience. The Fire TV Stick 4K offers Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HLG, and HDR10+. With the included Alexa Voice Remote, you can control your compatible TV, soundbar, and receiver with power, volume, and mute buttons. Just press and ask to easily find, launch, and control movies and TV shows.
