The MECOOL KM9Pro Classic is a new version of the well-known TV-Box Mecool KM9 and from which you have our REVIEW available. In this version we have the same SoC Amlogic S905X2 although at the hardware level we have cuts in the RAM that passes to 2GB, storage and wireless connectivity. This version includes as standard the Android TV 9 Pie system with Google certification, Google Cast and youtube 4K among others. A slightly cheaper option for those who do not mind the cuts in memories.
At the level of previous review we can comment that this Box can serve us perfectly for KODI 4K and IPTV and has a Google Certificate and integrates DRM Widevine L1 and Microsoft Playready systems. Although they are certificates that are of little use if they do not have Netflix support and other streaming systems that are not mentioned, check our TV-Box list with compatible Netflix certificates. 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 KM9Pro Classic includes as the engine the SoC of AMlogic S905X2 a 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 that integrates specific hardware to encode and decode the h.265 and VP9 codecs. We have 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be extended from the microSD card reader that includes this equipment on one side.
The TV-Box Mecool KM9Pro Classic includes Wi-Fi connectivity b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. 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 command with voice control, the operating system is Android TV 9 Pie and it seems that we can control it perfectly from the command that comes by default thanks to google certification.
