Realme has been launching plenty of products to its repertoire for the past few months, and the latest addition to its arsenal is going to be the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick. The launch for the product is set for October 13 alongside the Realme GT Neo 2.
What makes the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick special is the fact that it will be the first product outside of Sony and TCL televisions to officially run Google’s ‘new’ Smart TV platform, Google TV. While Google might want to tout Google TV as an entirely new platform – separate from Android TV – the general consensus is that it is just a rebranded/updated version of the Android TV platform.
Here’s how folks over at TomsGuide defines Google TV;
“Calling Google TV the replacement for Android TV is a bit imprecise, though. Google TV is more of a rebranding since the underlying software is still Android. It would be accurate to say that Google TV is the new name for Android TV.”
However, there are quite a few changes to Google TV as it gets a better interface and support for live TV. You can also use your Android phone as a remote to operate it.
Coming back to the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick, as evident from the name, it supports 4K content (possibly at 60FPS). It also comes with HDR 10+ support and gets HDMI 2.1 for connectivity, and USB type C port for power delivery.
The Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick will also come preloaded with plenty of OTT services including Netflix, Prime Video, Voot, YouTube, etc. As it is a Google TV, it will also have support for Play Games. Google Assistant is yet another sweet addition to the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick.
The pricing of the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick is not known but can be expected to be around or less than USD 50.
