Mecool KM9 is the latest TV-Box that comes with the new SoC of Amlogic S905X2, a chip that we hope to review soon and that promises a good jump to the graphic and video level compared to the previous generation. This new TV-Box takes us with a fairly complete configuration with 4GB of RAM and the typical microphone control, which in theory will let us search by voice. The operating system is Android 8.1 although for this SoC an update to the new Android P is expected soon.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Mecool KM9 includes as engine the SoC of AMlogic S905X2 a new Quad Core that theoretically reaches up to 2 GHz and integrates a new and powerful GPU Mali-G31 MP2, as a novelty in video playback we have a new VPU with Amlogic Video Engine (AVE) that integrates specific hardware to encode and decode 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 TV-Box includes Wifi dual-band AC 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.
