New minimalist Stick that we find in stores called MECOOL KD1 and that draws attention for including Android TV 10.0 certified as an operating system with what we have Chromecast included.
For the rest, this is a Stick designed to occupy a minimum space and use it basically as a streaming media player or similar, since its storage expansion options are non-existent, since it does not include a simple micro SD card reader or a USB port. As an engine we have a Quad Core Amlogic S905Y2 SoC, enough for the use that can be given to it. It also includes a Bluetooth remote control with microphone and direct access key to Google Assistant, remember that even if it includes Android TV 10 certified by Google, we will not have Netflix 4K UHD quality, since it lacks the validation of this platform.
SoC, RAM and storage
The MECOOL KD1 Stick includes an AMlogic S905Y2 SoC, a Quad Core manufactured in 12nm with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. The RAM memory is 2 GB and the storage memory is 16 GB eMMc. You can see how this processor performs in our Review of a Box with S905Y2 SoC.
In the field of wireless connectivity in the small MECOOL KD1 we have Dual Band Wifi aC and Bluetooth 4.2 with internal antenna. While in terms of connectors, given their size, we only have a female HDMI 2.0 port and a micro USB for power, a really short endowment. A Bluetooth remote control, cables and power supply are included.
