Xiaomi has remained pretty quiet about its Android TV-powered Mi Box since the device was announced back in May, but it looks like the set-top box will be available soon.
Twitter user George Garrett spotted Xiaomi’s Mi Box at a Walmart store, complete with a price tag of $69.00. According to a photo posted by Garrett, there were three Mi Boxes on this Walmart store’s shelf.

What’s notable about the Mi Box’s appearance in Walmart is that Xiaomi hasn’t made any announcements regarding the device’s pricing or launch date. In fact, the closest that we’ve gotten to learning that info is a recent report that claimed that the Mi Box would launch in early Q4 2016 for less than $100.
Considering that Xiaomi hasn’t actually announced the Mi Box’s availability yet, it’s possible that this Walmart just put the Mi Box on shelves early.
The Xiaomi Mi Box includes features like a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, output at up to 4K 60 frames per second, and both HDMI and USB 2.0 ports. There’s a Bluetooth voice remote control in the box, and Xiaomi will offer a Mi Game Controller separately if you’re into gaming on the device.
