It seems that Android 9.0 has finally arrived for the Amlogic S905W Low Cost SoC as it comes standard on the Bilikay A968 TV-Box that we found listed today in the online store Gearbest.com. An operating system upgrade like this is always interesting as it allows us to increase the life of our device and provide it with new features. Now it’s time to wait to see if Android 9.0 stays only for new TV-Boxes or also goes out to update any of the S905W SoC boxes that have been on the market for some time.
The Bilikay A968 Smart TV Box can be used as a basic media player with KODI in FHD resolution and you can also run simple games without too many graphic pretensions, you can see similar models in our review. We must remember that this type of cheap Box does not have an assured support of updates and does not have DRM certificates so we can only see Netflix in the basic quality. If you are interested in watching Streaming, you can check our TV-Box list with support for HD and 4K quality.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Bilikay A968 Smart TV Box with Android integrates Amlogic S905W SoC, a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and a MALI-450MP5 GPU. It has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB of eMMc storage memory and we have a microSD card reader located on one of the sides of the black plastic case that allows us to increase its internal storage.
At the wireless connectivity level we only have WiFi b/g/n with internal antenna since it does not have Bluetooth. As for connectors, it includes 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 2.0 port, IR sensor extender for the remote control, 10/100 network connector and finally an analog port for audio and video, a fairly basic configuration in this aspect.
It also includes a basic infrared remote control, cables and power supply in the box.
