Another cheap Android 10 Box listed by AliExpress, this time called IATV Q5 and based on Allwinner IK316 processor also known as Allwinner H316 in some places.
The Allwinner IK316 SoC has quite limited features compared to other chips in its sector, although it is possible to use it as a media player up to 4K resolutions at 60 fps. The operating system is Android 10 and, as usual in this range of TV Boxes, its hardware is quite limited, although at least this time we have Wi-Fi aC and Bluetooth 5.0.
Curiously, its remote control stands out, where we find a Netflix key, without a doubt with the most basic resolution and its compatibility with Stalker, Minister and Xtream. In short, another cheap Chinese Box with little appeal and for which we cannot count on any type of update.
IATV Q5 Specifications
The IATV Q5 TV-Box includes the Allwinner IK316 Quad Core SoC as an engine, which in some places is also found under the name of Allwinner H316. A chip with ARM Cortex-A53 processors that integrates Mali-G31 MP2 GPU with native decoding of h.265 and VP9 codecs and support for HDR10 video.
We have 2 GB of PDDR3 RAM and 8 GB of eMMc storage memory on board that can be expanded from one of the 2 USB ports that this equipment includes on the side of its plastic case, since we do not have a micro SD card reader .
As for wireless connectivity, this TV-Box has dual-band Wi-Fi AC and Bluetooth 5.0. As connectors, we have little, since we only find an HDMI 2.0a video output, a 10/100 network connector, two USB 2.0 ports and a 3.5 mm jack through which we have analogue audio and video output.
A basic quality IR remote control with quick access keys to Netflix and YouTube is also delivered with this TV-Box.
