The lack of ideas is a constant in the Chinese TV-boxes market and as usual we find a new model called M96X – II MINI with minimal hardware differences compared to other models. This is a new TV-Box based on the well-known S905X SoC from Amlogic and only differs from other mediaplayers by the design of its plastic box and at least by including a fairly modern version of Android such as 7.1.
The M96X – II MINI has a standard hardware, we found the Amlogic S905X SoC that has four ARM Cortex-A53 processors capable of reaching the real 1.5GHz and a Mali-450mp5 GPU capable of decoding video up to 4K resolutions UHD without problems. This model mounts 2GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMc storage memory, Wi-Fi b/g/n with internal antenna and Bluetooth 4.0. At the connector level we found a fairly typical configuration, a microSD card reader, 2 USB 2.0 ports, digital optical audio output, HDMI 2.0a connector up to 4K @ 60fps and a 10/100 Ethernet port.
The operating system is Android 7.1 and among the included accessories we have an IR remote control in addition to HDMI 2.0 cable.

Can you please post a firmware for this box? thanks
But i recommend try to ask to your shop for the firmware, maybe you have a different version, this cheap models can change some components like the wifi chip.
i bought mine from gearbest , and contacted them and everything but with no response … this firmware seems to work just fine same as other similar S905X firmwares but as you mentioned wifi does not work at all … as i remember my all firmware build was like this ” S905X012” and this one you sent me is ”S905X013” , My wifi chip is a Realtek ETV8189
any help finding this exact firmware will be very much appreciated !!! thanks
If Gearbest don’t respond open a dispute using paypal.
This low cost tv-boxes can have a lot of versions with different hardware.
