The Beelink brand presents a new TV-Box model called Beelink GS-King X that is still in an initial phase of development and may change some of its specifications. This Android TV-Box surprises us with its large metal box, inside which we have the powerful Amlogic S922X-H SoC and accommodation for two 3.5″ SATA disks with support up to 16TB, although Beelink tells us that they could be even more capacity.

Price and availability
- The Beelink GS-King X but is expected to hit the market in late May at a price of $300.
This one would be really nice if it were fanless. It could serve as both NAS and TVBox. On the other hand I have two different devices one for NAS and one for TV box which serve me quite well.
It will be very interesting to also see how the hard drives are attached , is it just some USB to SATA or something fancier.
WE will make a review as soon as possible.
