With the name of Blulory TV-Stick 4K we found on AliExpress a new Android media player. A device with the Allwinner IK316 processor that has not very good specifications.
The new SoC Allwinner IK316 has quite limited features compared to other rivals in its sector, although it is possible to use it as a media player up to 4K resolutions at 60 fps. The operating system is Android 10 and as usual in this format we have few options in connectivity, but this time we have at least a full USB Type-A port.
As we can see the box blatantly copies the Xiaomi Mi TV-Stick 4K with the intention of deceiving potential buyers, also we put the seals of a lot of streaming services to create confusion. We recommend the Xiaomi Stick over this one.
Blulory TV-Stick 4K specifications
The Blulory TV-Stick 4K Stick has at its heart an Allwinner IK316 SoC a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31 GPU of which we don’t know their clock speeds.
This stick has options with 1 GB LPDDR4 of RAM, something that seems to us totally at present. For storage we have options with 8 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can always expand thanks to a micro SD card reader that we find on one of its sides.
For wireless connectivity we find Dual Band Wifi and as we see it does not have Bluetooth. The included connectors are very few, we find a USB 2.0 Type-A, HDMI 2.0 video output, 3.5 mm jack to connect an extension for the IR sensor and a micro USB connector for power.
Pricing and availability
- The Blulory TV-Stick TV-Stick 4K with Allwinner IK316 SoC can be purchased on AliExpress only for $42 with free shipping.
