Amazon is reportedly launching two mid-range Fire Tv models

Amazon is reportedly working on two new Fire TV models, both of which will be capable of 4K HDR video at 60 fps. According to a report from AFTVNews, the first Fire TV is designed similar to the Google Chromecast while the other flagship Fire TV will be a cube-shaped set top box.


Apart from the HDMI port in the first Fire TV,  there will also be a microUSB port for connectivity like the Fire Stick. A leaked benchmark listing revealed some of its specifications such as a quad-core SoC running at 1.5GHz and Mali-450 MP GPU under its hood. In terms of memory, it will come with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The flagship Fire TV will comprise a far-field microphone, a built-in speaker, an IR emitter, and an LED light bar. On this Fire TV, you wouldn’t need the remote to launch Alexa, and the voice commands will be audible even when the TV is turned off. The device is rumored to have two volume buttons, one is the mute button for microphone and the other is a dedicated Alexa button. The flagship Fire TV is also expected to come with an Ethernet port and storage expansion support.

Though Amazon hasn't given a specific date for the launch of these two devices, there are chances that they could release in September itself.
