It appears today is the day that all prices are leaking. Just after finding out about the Google WiFi and its $129 price, Google Home’s $129 price, and the $69 price of the 4K “Chromecast Ultra,” we now have our first clue of the price of Xiaomi’s previously-announced Mi Box Android TV. According to someone who spotted one of the shelf at Walmart, it will run for $69…

The Mi Box features Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a quad-core ARM processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable (via USB) storage, and an HDMI port which can output 4K video at 60FPS. The box will ship with a slim remote that includes a microphone for voice commands (a la Apple TV) and Xiaomi will also be selling a controller for gaming.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a report suggested that the box would be coming at some point in October for a price less than $100. This $69 price tag is pretty believable, and a picture like this — with 3 Mi Box units just sitting on a shelf in their original packaging at Walmart — would be pretty difficult to fake. On this box, we learn that the Box comes with $76 in offers and a free HDMI cable.

I’m about to head out to my local Walmart and see if I get lucky enough to nab one.
