iATV Stick R3 another small 4K mediaplayer with Android 13

The iATV Stick R3 is another small, low-end media player based on the RK3528 processor that can be found on AliExpress

Another tiny stick designed to connect directly to an HDMI port of our TV, which is accompanied by the usual Android TV 13 system as OS and a good wireless connectivity Wifi 6. By carrying the SoC Rockchip RK3528 can serve us without difficulty as a media player up to 4K resolution, to run apps, basic games and something else. As always, its small form factor limits the number of available ports we find, something to take into account depending on the use we intend to give it.

Remember that in this type of cheap players like the iATV Stick R3 we do not have certificates to watch high-resolution video on paid streaming platforms (although the logos appear on the remote control). For streaming there are better options.

Specifications of the iATV Stick R3

The small iATV Stick R3 includes as engine a Rockchip RK3528 processor. This chip is a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A53 processors reaching up to 2.0 Ghz and an ARM MALI-450 MP2 GPU of which we do not know its clock speed.

For RAM we have a single version with 2 GB DDR3 and for storage we find 16 GB. This time we have a micro SD card reader to expand the storage memory with up to 256 GB extra.

Other notable features

In the field of wireless connectivity we have this time a good endowment, with Wifi 6 with internal antenna and Bluetooth 5.0. As connectors we find in its small plastic body a single USB-A 2.0 interface and an HDMI 2.0b video output port that allows us to output video in resolutions up to 4K@60fps . There is another USB Type-C port, but it is for the power supply.

Included with the Box iATV Stick R3 is a Bluetooth remote control with microphone for voice assistant commands and various hotkeys. We also find in the box a USC-C – USB-A cable for direct power supply to our TV and an HDMI cable to start using this Box just by taking it out of the box and connecting it to our TV.

Formuler’s just brought out the Z Mini, which is not exactly a compact stick form factor and, in spite of its seemingly expensive pricepoint, it also only includes 2Gb RAM.
This is so lame.
