Google’s Chromecast, and more recently, the new Chromecast with integrated Google TV, have become over time devices that are as practical as they are popular, since they not only serve to replicate mobile screen on our TV, but also to turn it into a Smart TV. And as is often the case in these cases, numerous manufacturers have launched into marketing similar alternatives.
Among all of them, we have, for example, the Fire TV Stick 4K from Amazon, the Mi TV Stick from Xiaomi and, very soon, el 4K Smart Google TV Stick de Realme. This is the name of the device that the Chinese manufacturer plans to launch next week and of which we already know its first characteristics.

In fact, Realme India has already created the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick product page with quite a few details about the device and images that show us its design. Being a stick, its appearance is very similar to that of the Amazon and Xiaomi proposals, but it brings an important novelty: will run Google TV out of the box, making it the first real alternative to Google’s Chromecast with Google TV.
