There are no limits to decorative inventiveness, and this time we found a Box with Android on AliExpress called Boxput BP2 that pays homage to soccer in its design and decoration.
This is a Box based on the AMlogic S905W2 SoC and with Android 11 as a system that doesn’t stand out at all, basically it’s the typical generic box. Its Amlogic processor has no problems when used as a media player and is even compatible with the new AV1 video codec and with support for HDR 10+ compatible content. An interesting processor within the basic range as you can see in our review and that is basically oriented to multimedia playback, running apps and that could even soon be compatible with EmuELEC.
As we always warn, it is not recommended to use this BOX to view payment platforms such as Netflix, since it lacks certificates to view them in maximum video quality, for this we have better options.
Boxput BP2 Specifications
The Boxput BP2 includes an Amlogic S905W2 SoC manufactured in 12nm soldered on its motherboard. This chip is a Quad Core with low power ARM Cortex-A35 processors and a MALI-G3 MP2 GPU. This processor is enough to move the Android 11 included, streaming apps, KODI, IPTV and some simple 3D load games that, as always, the CPU is cooled by a fanless heat sink, so we don’t have any noise.
In this box we have versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory on the board. It also has a memory card reader in micro SD format that allows us to increase its internal storage capacity.
In the wireless connectivity section in the Boxput BP2 we have Dual Band Wifi aC with internal antenna and Bluetooth 4.1 for this purpose. As for connectors, on the perimeter of its circular plastic box we find 2 USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI 2.1 video output port and an RJ-45 10/100 network connector.
Among the accessories included, we have a simple infrared remote control, power supply and all the necessary cables to start it up right out of the box.
