We can now book the first Smart Box with the new Amlogic S905X3 SoC that arrives at stores, the Beelink GT1-MINI 2 that is already listed on Gearbest.com. As we have seen in our blog the new SoC S905X3 is an evolution of the well-known S905X2 that improves the ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores for the most modern, efficient and powerful ARM Cortex-A55. Although we can book the Beelink GT1-MINI 2 this will not be sent until August 2, anyway we hope to have a factory sample soon to make a review.

When beelink gt mini 2 start to sell?
Maybe end of august…
So sad….., the android version is mobil3 version (same with GT King), so there will not support youtube and netflix on 4K resolution. Why Beelink not bring with android tv version? Its weird. So i will buy GT mini a ^^
Some people prefer mobile version, more options.
Will have a custom firmware to transform to ATV version, as others beelink.
Or will be a GT mini 2-A with Android TV + DRM to run netflix 4k in the future… will see.
Waiting for your review. By the way, Beelink GT1-MINI 2 is now available on Alibaba Express, Just about $69
hello my friend, I would like to know which is better, “mi box s” or gt1 mini 2 and gt1 mini
thanks for your attention
Hello. No one is better are different choices.
If you want Netflix 4K, Chromecast and other streaming services go for Xiaomi.
If you want more power and flexibility go for Beelink.
