New version available in stores of the Smart Box HK1 Mini Plus that includes RK3318 SoC and that has been in stores for a few weeks. A new version that seems to include nothing less than 128GB of storage memory, an unusual amount and less in a box with a low-end chip that can be useful if we use it as a download center for example. The rest of the internal hardware seems the same and the OS continues to be Android 9.0.
As a quick review we can see the estimated performance of the HK1 MINI PLUS in the review of a similar TV-Box. This Android TV-Box that can work as a basic player with KODI or IPTV even in 4K resolutions and can run simple games without too much demand of resources given its hardware. We must remember that these cheap Boxes do not have secured support and do not have DRM certificates with which we can only see Netflix in the simplest image quality. If you are interested to watch Streaming of payment in HD quality and 4K you can see our list of TV-Box with DRM certificates compatible with these services.
SoC, RAM and storage
This new version of the HK1 MINI PLUS integrates like heart the new Rockchip RK3318 SoC, with four processors ARM Cortex-A53 able to arrive at 1.5Ghz and a GPU Mali-450mp5 that includes native decoding of video H.265 and VP9 until in 4K @ 60fps resolutions with support for HDR. We also have 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 128 GB of eMMc storage memory. If we need it, we can expand it by adding a memory card in the microSD card reader included.
In terms of wireless connections this smart TV-Box round has Dual Band WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. On the perimeter of the box we have a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, 10/100 network connector, analog AV jack and an HDMI 2.0a port that allows up to 4K @ 60fps video resolutions.
