Amazon claims the new version of the device is “80% more powerful” than its previous generation of Fire TV Stick, which was not ultra HD compatible.

The latest iteration, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, comes with a new-quad core 1.7GHz processor that offers a faster streaming experience and quicker load times.

It also has new antenna technology that was developed by the Amazon and a 802.11ac WiFi chip.

“We’ve listened to our customers and pushed to deliver the complete 4K solution they are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor,” said Eric Saarnio, head of Amazon Devices, Europe.

“Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an amazing picture. Plus, the all-new Alexa Voice Remote lets you control your entertainment experience and use your voice to quickly find the content you want.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is available now to pre-order and will start shipping in the US and Canada on October 31 and in the UK on 14 November. The device will be priced at US$49.99 in the US and £49.99 in the UK.

The new Alexa Voice Remote is also available for pre-order as a standalone remote for US$29.99 or £29.99 and will ship on the same day as the Fire TV Stick 4K.

Amazon started to ship the previous version of its Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote in the UK in April 2017.
