It has been a while since we had a new Android TV-Box powerful and interesting, with the Beelink GT-King II we have a new toy in this range thanks to the SoC Amlogic A311D2.
This new TV-Box in addition to the processor offers Android 11 and no less than 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4X, certainly an interesting machine for those who need these specifications. We also have Wi-fi 6 2T2R + BT 5.0 integrated to have good wireless connectivity, Gigabit Ethernet adapter and video decoding support up to 8K@30fps.
As usual this type of TV-Box lacks the certificates to view paid streaming platforms such as Netflix in maximum video quality, for that there are other more efficient alternatives. This is a device for the user looking for power and a classic Android system.
Beelink GT-King II Specifications
The Beelink GT-King II Smart Box includes the new Octa Core SoC Amlogic A311D2 manufactured in 12 nm, with 4 ARM Cortex-A73 processors capable of reaching 1.8Ghz + 4 ARM Cortex-A53 processors reaching 1.9Ghz. The GPU is an ARM Mali-G52 with four cores that allows us to run powerful games like PUBG, as you can see in the GT-King 1 Review.
As for VPU we have the Amlogic Video Engine processor with support for AV1 codec, this hardware supports HDR, Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR10 and HDR10+. But the certificates will limit its final compatibility in this aspect.
The on-board soldered RAM memory is 8 GB LPDDR4X at 4266 MHz, while the storage is 64 GB eMMc 5.1 high-speed. We can expand the storage thanks to a micro SD card reader on the side.
Connectivity and other features
In terms of wireless connectivity the Android Box Beelink GT-King II has Wi-fi 6 2T2R + Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet port, SPDIF digital audio output, an HDMI 2.1 up to 4K@60fps and a 3.5 mm jack for analog audio and video output.
Included in the package we have a Bluetooth + IR remote control that allows us to also control the system by pointer thanks to its flymouse function. It has in the same remote control integrated microphone to use an assistant.
As a system we have Android 11, sure that with Beelink we will have an interesting number of updates, also in the future may offer support for alternative systems such as EmuELEC.
Price and availability
- The Android Box Beelink GT-King II for now can be purchased on AliExpress for $218 with shipping included, but surely soon we will have it in other stores at a lower price.
Anybody got Magisk installed and running…?
Patiently awaiting the arrival of mine from Aliexpress
Let me know what you think.
Hi! Is this box better than ugoos am6b plus
Is more powerful. When we test it will see.
Do the box get updated regularly
GT King 1 had a lot of updates.
Link is dead..
Link is working… checked.
if dolby Vision is not supported,Not interested in this box
Buy a box with streaming certifications.
It’s not bad but the original S922 chips is almost the same and boxes with it can be had for a much lower price. I got an Amazon TV Cube 2 with it for 60 euros with some serious discount and it supports Prime, Netflix and all that. Interesting is perhaps AV1 support but for now I don’t really see a need for AV1. Also more powerful GPU could be useful for those who do gaming. All in all I’d rather either have something cheaper or if for more money with the better RK3588. One thing to mention about Beelink… Read more »
This box don’t fight with the big companies like amazon, is oriented to the people prefers a almost pure “Google tablet OS” in their TV.
Media player in these devices are focused to IPTV, Kodi + addons + HDD attached with torrent…
Beelink will cooperate with emueelec or coreelec to focus this box to the emulation.
Yes, I understand but in this case I think something with RK3588 might be more powerful.
I’m not sure about the GPU but for the CPU the RK3588 is much better.
Also even though there’s no specialized distro for it the Amazon stuff allows for some flexibility in that you can install any apk that you want.
There are some limitations though like the limited number of ports and only 16GB of flash.
All in all as I said I like the Beelink hardware but this SOC is outdated per my opinion.
