In order to sell electronic devices with wireless connectivity in the United States, the manufacturer first needs to get this device approved by the FCC, the Federal Communications Commission.
Now the Xiaomi Mi Box, a highly anticipated Android TV set-top box, has been spotted passing through the FCC for inspection. This is a good sign for the company. Once they pass the inspection, there will not be any legal barriers to sell the product. They’ll definitely be focusing on a marketing campaign and will launch at a strategic time.
The Xiaomi Mi Box was announced at Google I/O. It’s a small set-top box that supports ultra-high definition and high dynamic range content. You can watch our “First Look” when Hugo Barra introduces the device to the world.
