New Smart Box with Android 11 and the Amlogic S905X4 SoC that we found in the great AliExpress bazaar called Magicsee N5 MAX X4.
A TV-box that stands out little from what we have seen so far with this SoC, since its configuration is very similar to that of other TV-Boxes, and it comes in the typical plastic box with a front where we have a small LED panel. In this device we have versions with up to 4 GB of RAM, and it is capable of decoding the AV1 codec thanks to the presence of the latest generation SoC. This is a suitable Android Box to be used as a media player, with KODI or similar, to run games and many emulators. It is not suitable for use with paid streaming platforms, due to the fact that it does not have certificates and to view them in the best video quality, for that we have other alternatives.
