MECOOL KM6 with Amlogic S905X4 SoC and Android TV 10 for sale


After a long wait since its presentation, we already have available in Chinese stores such as Aliexpress.com the first Box with the new Amlogic S905X4 SoC, the MECOOL KM6 is available in two versions, Classic or Deluxe.

The Amlogic S905X4 Quad Core SoC included in the MECOOL KM6 is the main novelty, a chip that now includes as its main improvement support for the AV1 codec, which is being adopted by large streaming companies to compress video with high image quality and low data consumption. We also have Android TV 10 certified as an operating system, with built-in Chromecast and a Bluetooth remote with microphone included, with which we can give orders to Google Assistant and which includes direct access keys to Amazon Prime Video and YouTube. Keep in mind that this box is not certified by Netflix, so we will not be able to view the content in 4K UHD quality, and we will stay in SD+.

SoC, RAM and storage

The Mecool KM6 Smart Box includes the AMlogic S905X4 SoC, a 12 nm Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A55 processors that theoretically reach 2 GHz speed and integrates a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. The VPU includes HDR, HDR10 and HLG support.

This box has two versions, the KM6 Classic Edition with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of eMMc storage and another called KM6 Deluxe Edition with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, both with a micro SD card reader.

Other specifications

In the area of wireless connectivity we find that the KM6 Classic variant has Wifi aC and Bluetooth 4.2, while the KM6 Deluxe model has Wifi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. The connectors included in the plastic box are a micro SD card reader, USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, AV connector, Ethernet 10/100 and an HDMI 2.1 video output.

As usual, an HDMI cable, a Bluetooth remote control with a built-in microphone for using Google Assistant and a power supply are included so that this Smart Box can be used right away.

Hi.
S905X4 is almost the same as S905X3 plus AV1 codec support.
Soon we will test this boxes, but will be similar to the versions with s905x3.

Hi.

Will it then be possible, to test the AFRd app on a S905X4 Soc?

Can it be run on Android 10?

I read it require a ‘Firmware system with ROOT permission enabled.’
Do you have any idea which S905X4 boxes, we can expect with ROOT permission enabled?

Regards Carsten.

Kim

Afrd will work for sure, just need root.
We will test.
Usally the cheap boxes are root, not mecool with android tv.
Wait to see some reviews.
