If you’re in the market for a new 4K Fire TV Stick, Amazon has a new one to sell you. The new Fire TV Stick 4K is not Amazon’s most powerful streaming player, but it is still a powerful stick-based device in general, and priced at $50.

In fact, Amazon is advertising its new Fire TV Stick 4K as offering “Fire TV Stick’s best performance yet for under $50.” Not only does it feature an updated 1.7 GHZ quad-core processor, but it also adds Wi-Fi 6 for improved connectivity. All of which, Amazon says, makes the new model “30% more powerful than the previous generation.”

In terms of the rest of the specs, the 2023 Fire TV Stick 4K features 2GB memory, 8GB storage, and offers support for Dolby Vision, plus HDR, HDR 10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Atmos audio. It also comes bundled with an Alexa Voice Remote.

For those interested in giving the latest model a try, the 2023 Fire TV Stick 4K is available for pre-order today globally for $49.99 from Amazon, and is due to begin shipping out to buyers on September 27, 2023.

In the market for an even richer Fire TV Stick experience, Amazon also today announced a new Fire TV 4K Max device, boasting even greater processing and connectivity features, including support for WiFi 6E. Priced at just $59.99, the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max is only $10 more than the new Fire TV Stick 4K player announced today.

Regardless of whether opting for the standard or Max version of the Fire TV Stick 4K, Amazon will also now sell you a Fire TV Soundbar. While not powered by Fire TV itself, it is designed to work with the company’s lineup of Fire TV devices to offer an improved audio experience. The new Fire TV Soundbar costs $119.99 and is also now available to order.
