Mecool KM9 Pro is a new TV-Box version of the Mecool KM9 that we met some time ago in detail through one of our REVIEW. In this version we have the same Amlogic S905X2 SoC and comes with the Android TV 9 Pie system and voice remote to use Google Assistant, a fairly current system that will at least give you some long-term life.
As a quick review we can comment that this Box can serve us perfectly for KODI or IPTV and playback any local media, as we see has a Google Certificate and integrates Google Widevine L1 and Microsoft Playready DRM systems. Although they have this certificates are not useful to have Netflix support and other streaming systems, as we see are not mentioned in their ads for this reason. If you have want a Netflix 4K official device check our TV-Box list with compatible Netflix certificates. Seems that has Google Cast although we would like to check it. In terms of power you can see the results of this SoC in a comparison of the Amlogic S905X2 chip, we can run powerful games like PUBG. As for support Mecool always launches some firmware update but does not have long-term continuous support.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Mecool KM9 Pro includes as engine the AMlogic S905X2 SoC a Quad Core that theoretically reaches up to 2 GHz and integrates a new and powerful Mali-G31 MP2 GPU, as a novelty in video playback we have a new VPU that integrates specific hardware to encode and decode the h.265 and VP9 codecs. We have 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 32 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be extended from the microSD card reader that includes this equipment on one side.
The Mecool KM9 Pro TV-Box includes wireless connectivity Wifi a/b/g/n Dual band and Bluetooth 4.1. The connectors included in the plastic box are not many since we only have one USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, analog audio and video port, a 10/100 Ethernet connector and an HDMI 2.1 video output with 4K@60fps support with dynamic HDR and HDCP 2.2.
In this new version as we see we have a Bluetooth remote with voice control, the operating system is Android TV 9 Pie and it seems that we can control it perfectly from the remote that comes by default.
