FIRE TV CUBE EVEN FASTER
We are facing the third generation of Fire TV Cube, which is the flagship product among Amazon’s streaming media players. Increase power and speed thanks to the new 2.0 GHz octa-core processor which should ensure 20% higher performance than the previous generation. This results in an increase in app launch speed, which in fact makes the Fire TV experience even more rewarding.
The Fire TV Cube continues to offer full voice control via Alexa and includes support for 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, HDR, and immersive Dolby Atmos audio. But there are also a number of new features, including a HDMI input, Wi-Fi 6E support and Super Resolution Upscaling.
Let’s start with the HDMI input, which finally gives users the ability to bring together entertainment devices, such as cable boxes, blu-rays and more, by connecting them directly via cable to the Fire TV Cube. Thanks to this feature, you can easily control live TV, supported decoders and on-demand streaming, all via the Fire TV’s Alexa voice remote. Fire TV Cube also features an additional USB port for connecting compatible webcamswhich will enable video calling via Alexa Communications
Additionally, the Fire TV Cube is also Amazon’s first media player to offer support for Wi-Fi 6E, which, if you have a compatible router, makes the entertainment experience smoother and less prone to interference from other Wi-Fi devices in the home. But there is also an Ethernet port for those who need a wired network connection.
Finally, the latest addition to the Fire TV Cube is the Super Resolution Upscaling, which offers better image quality by easily converting HD content into 4K, whether they are photos or movies, to obtain greater sharpness, contrast and clarity. Thanks to this technology, content originally made in HD will appear sharper on a 4K display.
The new Fire TV Cube is available from today for pre-order at a price of 159 euros on Amazon.

Two new customizable buttons make it easier and faster to access your favorite content and Alexa commands. It is therefore possible to change the remote control by programming shortcuts to favorite apps, channels and everything Alexa is able to do: for example, you can choose to program a button so that Alexa dims the lights, controls the weather or starts the routine. of the movie night.
