Mecool KM9 a model of TV-Box that we already know in detail through one of our REVIEW, a device that has the extended Amlogic S905X2 SoC but this time we are surprised by the inclusion of Android 9 Pie. This TV-Box integrates 4GB of RAM on board and it seems that it is only sold for now in its version with conventional control without voice control.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Mecool KM9 includes as engine the SoC of AMlogic S905X2 a new Quad Core that theoretically reaches up to 2 GHz and integrates a new and powerful GPU Mali-G31 MP2, as a novelty in video playback we have a new VPU with Amlogic Video Engine (AVE) that integrates specific hardware to encode and decode h.265 and VP9 codecs. We have 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 32 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be extended from the microSD card reader that includes this equipment on one side.
The Mecool KM9 TV-Box includes Wifi dual-band AC and Bluetooth 4.1. The connectors included in the plastic box are not many since we only have one USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, analog audio and video port, a 10/100 Ethernet connector and an HDMI 2.1 video output with 4K @ 60fps support with dynamic HDR and HDCP 2.2.
In this new version as we see we have a conventional IR control without voice control, the operating system is Android 9 Pie Classic (it is not Android TV) and no comments about the integrated DRM certificates.
