Flipkart has launched an Android-based streaming stick under its private brand 'MarQ by Flipkart', venturing into a segment that has largely been dominated by Amazon's Fire Stick TV and Google's Chromecast.
Dubbed as MarQ Turbostream, the device comes with the latest Android TV 9 OS, Dolby Digital Audio support, and a voice-controlled remote control.
Flipkart is betting big on Android's user interface
"With the Android operating system being so popular in the country, the user interface of our streaming device will be familiar and will help customers adapt to the new technology quickly," Adarsh Menon, SVP - Private Brands, Electronics and Furniture, Flipkart, said in a statement.
The MarQ Turbostream dongle is listed on Flipkart at a special price of Rs. 3,499 (MRP: Rs. 5,999). Buyers can avail a 5% cashback on Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card or an extra 5% off with Axis Bank Buzz Credit Card.
