FCC listing hints at an Amazon Fire TV with microSD slot

Amazon hasn’t introduced something official a few subsequent-gen Hearth TV but, however blogger Dave Zatz has noticed what might be an FCC submitting for one. The paperwork name the gadget an “HDMI Digital Media Receiver” and have been filed by a “Quill Royal LLC,” although it is value noting that Amazon makes use of shell names on a regular basis. If that is certainly the subsequent-gen Hearth TV, then you’ll be able to anticipate a extra highly effective gadget throughout. It has an Ethernet and a USB port that may learn flash drives, in addition to a microSD card slot. The media participant additionally helps 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth four.1.

Again in July, some leaked benchmark outcomes included these of a thriller gadget referred to as “Amazon AFTS” with a chip that helps 4K video. It is nonetheless unclear if that gadget and the system represented by this submitting are one and the identical, however individuals have been anticipating a brand new Hearth TV ever because the firm stopped promoting the primary iteration. If you wish to see a subsequent-gen model of the media participant, you might need to cross your fingers and hope that Amazon did not put a cease to its improvement prefer it did lots of its different hardware tasks.

Fairly positive I discovered the subsequent Hearth TV… sadly, the filings do not cowl video decision, so 4k stays a query. http://t.co/6ujmBeMWH7
