In this version of the Mecool KM9 PRO it continues with the same hardware as the model we saw in Review a while ago, with a Quad Core Amlogic S905X2 SoC in command. This version continues including Google Certification that allows you to have Google Cast to transmit content from our mobile devices and allows you to play Amazon Prime Video content in 4K quality. Minimal changes that only practically affect the software.
