Amazon's latest Fire TV Stick offers 4K for $50

Fire TV Stick 4K

The lack of those basic TV controls were a sticking point in our Fire TV Cube review earlier this year. The USB port pictured here is for power only.

Just as the dust is settling on Amazon's bold move into the hi-fi multi-room market, the shopping goliath has announced a new video streamer.

Simply called the Fire TV Stick 4K, it features a new quad-core processor and redesigned antenna, which Amazon said will allow it to stream Ultra HD content despite any congestion. Once your trade-in is accepted by Amazon, add a Fire TV Stick 4K to your cart and the bonus savings of $20 will be taken out automatically during checkout.

New Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K packs Dolby Vision and HDR10+ in the same device

Another big change with the updated Fire TV Stick is in the remote - it finally includes a power button and volume controls, which have always been a top request from many users.

Previously, the Fire TV Stick had a price tag of $40 (£40) and only offered 1080p, with no HDR support. The Alexa Voice Remote is available for standalone purchase at Rs 1,999, which will be really helpful to the existing Amazon Fire TV Stick users. It's the newest update to its best-selling Fire TV stick and, according to the company, 80 percent more powerful. Its included remote now comes with dedicated buttons for power, volume, and mute, as well as an IR transmitter that gives it a modicum of control over various soundbars, cable boxes, and AV equipment. For what it's worth, Amazon's announcement suggests the company is phasing out the standard Fire TV 4K and now pitching the Fire TV Cube's integrated smart speaker as its main draw.

It will begin shipping on October 31 in the USA and Canada. Check out all the great bundles that includes devices like the 3rd-generation Echo Dot, the Fire TV Recast and more.
