Mi Box mini - an impossibly small set-up box that’s 1/4 the size of Mi Box and fits like a power adapter. It packs a punch with Cortex-A7 quad-core 1.3GHz 1GB RAM, 4GB Flash. It also has 1080P resolution, Dolby, DTS audio and dual band Wi-Fi 802.11n.

What I received was the Limited edition new year gift, The Best New Year Gift from Mi Singapore

This comes with a special packaging in Red unlike normal brown boxes which Mi Device used to be

Opening up, it consist of 4 parts, MiBox Mini, Bluetooth remote controller, HDMI cable and user manual. Everything is so well neatly packed in a small Red box

Setting up MiBox mini

And due to Mibax Mini does not have any extension power cord, and need to place near to the TV, I've have to get the power extension below the TV

Once powered up, Mibox Mini will starts to search for the bluetooth remote control, just follow the simply steps to get it paired

Next it will search for WiFi, get it connected and you almost done

Done, you are ready to use the Mibox Mini

The contents is about the same as Mibox, and notice they have changed to GITV, not iCNTY anymore

Setting page. and you can see my Mi Router is connected too
