The difference in shipping dates is also a thing to note. Gearbest says shipping will begin next week which means the device should launch this week. However, the 1GB RAM version will take a bit longer. Xiaomi has not said anything about the Mi TV Stick launching this week, so we advise you to take the info with a pinch a salt.
