The panorama of Chinese Smart Boxes is being encouraged, since in recent weeks we can find the odd new model and today we locate the new H50 that includes Android 10.0 as OS.
This box of cheap range enters the simplest range, since it includes a 4-core SoC RK3318 that although it is not the most powerful on the market that we find in the Chinese boxes allows us to use KODI without problems even in 4K resolutions as well as applications of the IPTV type. The weakest points of the H50 are its GPU, currently out of date and the usual absence of certificates for paid streaming platforms such as Netflix, as we will not be able to view content in 4K.
SoC, RAM and storage
The new TV-Box H50 integrates the new Rockchip RK3318 SoC as an engine, which has four ARM Cortex-A53 processors capable of reaching 1.5 GHz and a Mali-450mp5 GPU that includes native H.265 and VP9 video decoding up to in 4K @ 60fps resolutions with HDR support. It has versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand by adding a memory card in the included micro SD card reader.
In the field of wireless connections, this TV-Box has Dual Band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. On the sides of the box we have a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, a micro USB OTG, 10/100 network connector, SPDIF output, analogue AV jack and an HDMI 2.0a port that allows you to output up to quality video resolutions 4K @ 60fps. The classic IR remote control and an HDMI cable are included.
