New Chinese Box that appears in stores with the name of G96 Max and that allows us to smarten our television if we are not very demanding.
A Chinese mid-range Box that has a small front LED screen and that at least already comes with Android 10 as the operating system. The G96 Max can be useful as a multimedia player by installing the KODI mediaplayer or to use all kinds of Apps including games and emulators, since the GPU that its Allwinner H616 SoC brings is not bad. To use it with paid streaming apps, it is not the best option, as it is limited to low resolution in most services as it does not have the necessary certificates. If you want to know more details about this SoC you can read our review of a Box with Allwinner H616.
The Box G96 Max includes the Quad Core Allwinner H616 SoC manufactured in 28nm. A chip that integrates 4 ARM Cortex-A53 processors capable of reaching 1.8 Ghz and an ARM Mali-G31mp2 GPU.
We have a version of this Smart Box with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand thanks to the micro SD card slot that it includes on one of its sides where we can theoretically insert up to 64 GB cards.
In the field of wireless connectivity, we have Wi-Fi b/g/n with internal antenna and Bluetooth 4.0. As connectors, we find in its plastic case 2 USB 2.0 ports, a 10/100 network connector, analogue audio and video output jack and an HDMI 2.0a video output port that allows us to output video without problems up to 4K @60fps resolutions.
An IR remote control, power supply and HDMI cable are delivered with this Smart Box to be able to start using this Box just by taking it out of the box and connecting it to our TV.
