The Amazon Fire TV Cube combines features of the Echo Dot and a Fire TV Stick into one. Now, the company is here with the third-gen Fire TV Cube with quite a few changes up its sleeves. So, let’s take a look at the Amazon Fire TV Cube (3rd Gen) along with its specs, features, price, and availability in Nepal.
Amazon Fire TV Cube (3rd Gen) Overview:
Amazon has refreshed the design of the third-gen Fire TV Cube giving it a more premium look. While the Alexa LED status bar and physical control buttons remain on the top, the built-in speaker is now covered by a fabric mesh.
As for the I/O selection, it comes with an ethernet, USB, IR extender, and both HDMI in and HDMI out. With the added HDMI input, you can connect it directly to a cable box. This allows the user to control the box via Alexa as well as the Fire TV Cube Remote.
The third-generation Fire TV Cube is fitted with a new 2.2GHz octa-core processor. According to Amazon, this makes it 20% more powerful than its predecessor. Likewise, it should be two times more powerful than the Fire TV Stick 4K Max. With the new processor, the Fire TV will have noticeable improvement in load times and video playback performance.
Rest of the Specs
Moreover, the Fire TV Cube (3rd Gen) is the first streaming device in the market to come with Wi-Fi 6E. It also includes Super Resolution Upscaling which can make high-definition videos look like native 4K videos with enhanced sharpness and details. It also features a 360-degree IR blaster that can control other devices such as your TV, home theater, AC, soundbar, and more.
Alexa Voice Remote Pro
With the third-gen Fire TV Cube, Amazon also unveiled the Alexa Voice Remote Pro. Unfortunately, it is sold separately and not bundled with the cube. The remote has motion-activated backlighting that turns on when the remote is lifted in a low-light environment.
The remote also has two new programmable buttons that can be assigned to apps, channels, and even Alexa commands. Besides this, the Alexa Remote Pro also has a built-in speaker that comes in handy when you misplace it. Simply ask Alexa to find your remote and it will emit a ring to reveal its location.
