Like the Chromecast, Realme connects to a TV via HDMI, giving users access to a huge selection of video apps. The set-top box runs on the official Google TV platform with a bunch of related features, including the Google Assistant.
The manufacturer reports that the new product supports 4K resolution at up to 60 frames per second, HDR10 and HDR10 + formats, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless communication, HDMI 2.0 interface and is equipped with an AV1 and HEVC decoder. However, unlike its rival from Google, the Realme set-top box is not compatible with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision formats.
Realme 4K Smart Google TV is powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A35 processor with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The set-top box comes with a Bluetooth-enabled remote control with shortcut buttons for popular applications.
The Realme 4K Smart Google TV – this is the full name of the set-top box – will soon appear on the manufacturer’s official website. At the moment, the price of the device for the Indian market is known, which is about $55.
