We already have in store a new TV-Box called Alfawise A8 Pro, a version of the Alfawise A8 a basic box equipped with the SoC RK3229 from Rockchip and that was the first to release Android 8.1 under this chip. This new version does not present great news, we only see a new external aspect and improvements in wireless connectivity with the presence of Dual Band Wifi, although Bluetooth seems to still shine by its absence.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box Alfawise A8 Pro is an input range with a configuration that includes the SoC of Rockchip RK3229 as an engine, a chip with four ARM Cortex-A7 processors capable of reaching up to 1.5 Ghz and a Mali-400mp2 GPU capable of reproducing natively up to 4K @ 60fps content. This equipment also includes 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of expandable eMMc storage memory thanks to the SD card reader included in one of the sides of the box. An economic configuration but enough to be used as a multimedia player.
Regarding wireless connectivity, the Alfawise A8 TV-Box includes only dual-band Wi-Fi with internal antenna since, in the absence of more data, it seems that it does not have Bluetooth. As for connectivity, we found on the sides of its box 2 USB 2.0 ports, AV analog output, HDMI 2.0 connector and a RJ45 10/100 network port.
