Today we locate on Aliexpress.com a new Box with Android moved by the Rockchip RK3328 Quad Core SoC called HK1 Max. A model that repeats the circular box with front panel LED that we saw in another device a few days ago and that as usual with this SoC of Rockchip already includes 4GB of RAM and Android 9.0, something that will give a little life to long term.
As a simple review the HK1 Max we can compare it with a similar model that we have analyzed. This is an Android TV-Box that allows us to use it as a basic media player with KODI or IPTV, we can also run basic games without too much demand of resources. We must remember that these cheap Boxes do not have brand support and do not have DRM certificates with which we can only see Netflix SD in basic quality. If you are interested to watch streaming services in HD quality and 4K you can see our list of TV-Box with DRM certificates compatible with these services.
