New Box that we found in Chinese stores, this time based on Android 11 and called HK1 RBOX X4S and that looks like a cut version of the HK1 RBOX where the Gigabit Ethernet connector is basically lost.
A Smart Box that contributes very little to what we already know and of which we have versions with up to 4 GB of RAM and that is capable of decoding the AV1 codec thanks to the presence of the latest generation Amlogic S905X4 SoC. As always, we inform you that this is a suitable Android Box to be used as a multimedia player, with KODI or similar, to run games and many emulators, but not very suitable for use with paid streaming platforms, due to the fact that it does not have certificates to view them in the best video quality.

SoC, RAM and storage
The HK1 RBOX X4S Android Box includes the AMlogic S905X4 processor as its engine, a Quad Core manufactured in 12nm with low-power ARM Cortex-A55 processors that theoretically reach 2 GHz speed and integrates a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. The VPU includes 4K@60fps, HDR, HDR10 and HLG support.
We have different versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM memory soldered on the board, 16/32/64/128 GB of eMMc storage to choose from and a micro SD card reader where we can connect up to 64 GB cards to expand the internal memory.
In the field of wireless connectivity, all versions of this new Android Box have dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. The connectors included on the sides of its plastic case are a USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, 3.5 mm analogue audio and video output connector, SPDIF digital audio output, RJ45 10/100 Ethernet interface to connect via cable and an HDMI 2.1 video output that can output video in up to 8K resolutions.
As usual, HDMI cable, power supply and a basic IR remote control are included to be able to use this Box from the first moment, although we have different options with other remote controls, paying an extra, of course.
