New Box of the Alfawise brand that arrives at stores with the price as focus and the SoC RK3229 Quad Core from Rockchip as heart. A box with Android 9.0 that comes under the name of Alfawise A8 NEO and that is basically oriented to be used as a mediaplayer because it has a basic GPU and very modest hardware. The external appearance of this box is as simple as possible, but for the price it has, you can not ask for big things. In short, a very simple Box that also surely does not have any kind of firmware support.
