Meet the newest Xiaomi Mini PC - Mi 3s TV box
Xiaomi (or just "MI" outside of China) launched several Mini PC's in the past, sadly they were all meant for Chinese market. That didn't stop Chinese retailers to sell them overseas, but it might take some skills to change the language to English.
The box does look great : it's powerful CPU and GPU combo coupled with the HDMI 2.0, 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO wifi and Dolby and DTS decoding capabilities are all very attractive at that price.
All that power needs good cooling, so there's a small fan inside the case.

Xiaomi 3s Mi TV box
Supporting 10-bit H.265 and 4K/2160p @ 60Hz, the Xiaomi 3s Mi TV box does impress, we'll just have to see how well can it be used outside China.
The Mini PC will come with an interesting "vocal and somatosensory remote control", probably an airmouse with built-in microphone.
