Motorola is a company that did wonders in the good in all times. The company gave us the world’s first foldable (or, at the time of its launch, the flip phone) phone, the Motorola StarTAC. Then came the age of smartphones and then, later, smart televisions. There is no denying that Motorola suffered a setback over the years. But it seems the tide might’ve changed in favor of Motorola. The company is now in a recovering phase. Their new products seem to have a better reception among the fans and others. And now, Motorola launched 4K Android TV Stick in India.
It seems with the launch of the Motorola TV stick, Motorola might be on to a head-on head with the Mi Box 4K and the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. These TV sticks have been with us for quite a while now, which could make things a little more challenging for the Motorola TV Stick. But the company seems to be confident enough, so let us look at what this new tech has in the bag for us.

One may ask why to discuss the pricing first. The reason is that pricing makes this one feel like a close (or maybe, direct) competitor for the Amazon Fire TV Stick and the Mi Box 4K. The new Motorola 4K Android TV Stick will be priced at INR 3,999. Whereas the Mi Box 4K is priced at ₹3,499, and the Amazon Fire TV Stick is priced at ₹5,999. This new one seems to be well priced considering the specifications and features it offers (at least on paper). The device supports 4K HDR video (HDR10 and HLG) streaming at 60fps, which has become the user preference nowadays. The specifications of the Motorola Android TV Stick is as follows.
Since the device is running on Android, it will have access to the Google Play Store. This can be useful for downloading apps and games.
Motorola Launched 4K Android TV Stick in India, and it is expected to go on sale from the 3rd week of March. And like recent Motorola devices, we hope this one to be a success. The race between these streaming devices helps them push the limits, and we hope Motorola will follow the trend.
