Realme announced a TV set-top box with built-in Google TV

Following the release of its first Android tablet earlier this month, Realme is preparing to release a 4K TV stick with Google TV built in. While the company hasn't released any information about the upcoming device, a teaser released by e-commerce platform Flipkart shows that Realme will announce it during the upcoming Big Billion Days sale.

If the teaser is to be believed, the Realme TV stick will be Google's first alternative to Google's Chromecast with Google TV, as it will run Google TV rather than Android TV. For those not in the know, Google TV is the latest version of Android TV with a new user interface, focused on content.

The UI has several different sections including For You, Live, Movies, Show, Apps and Library that give users quick access to all content in one place. This greatly improves the user experience over Android TV, as it combines content from different platforms on one screen. For now, the feature is only available on Chromecast with Google TV and on several smart TVs from Sony and TCL.

At the moment, little is known about the features of the Realme TV stick, other than that it will offer 4K streaming capabilities. Judging from the image included in the teaser, we can be sure that the device will feature an HDMI port for connecting to your TV and a USB Type-C port. The Realme TV stick will likely come with a remote control, and will probably support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
