Amazon has announced the recent Fire TV. The main feature here is support for 4K content, with the device having the ability to play back 4K movies and TV shows from Netflix, Amazon Video, and Prime Video. The quality of 1080p content has also improved with the recent HEVC codec support, that's also more efficient.

The recent Fire TV runs on a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor that is assumed to have 75% more processing power than the previous Fire TV. There's also Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11ac with MIMO, microSD support, Amazon Mayday customer service, and Dolby Audio over HDMI and Bluetooth. The recent Fire TV also comes with the recent Fire Operating System (OS) 5 "Bellini", that includes Alexa, Amazon's recent search assistant first seen on the Amazon Echo. The voice functionality works with Amazon's Voice Remote.

As before, the Fire TV has support for Android games on the Amazon Appstore. You can separately purchase the wireless Fire TV Game Controller to pair with the Fire TV. Additionally, Amazon will also be selling a Fire TV Gaming Edition, that comes with the controller as standard, along with a 32GB microSD card and two free games, Shovel Knight and Disney's Ducktales.

The recent Fire TV is priced at $99.99 and the Gaming Edition at $139.99. The Fire TV Game Controller can separately be purchased for $49.99.

Amazon also announced the recent Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote. It's the same Fire Stick as before but now comes with the Voice Remote so you can utilize Alexa to search for things instead of typing on the remote. The Fire Stick is priced at just $49.99.
