It is not very common to find projectors with modern versions of Android, but today we have the new MECOOL KP1 that comes with Android TV 11.
This modernity is due to the fact that hidden inside the projector we have a Mecool KD5 TV Stick that with an Amlogic S805X2 SoC is in charge of moving Android TV 11. This is not the most powerful Stick on the planet, but it will work well for us as a multimedia center, since it even integrates the AV1 codec. By having Android TV 11 certified by Google, we have Chromecast included and certified to view Netflix and other platforms in FHD quality.
Regarding the projector, we highlight its native FHD resolution and its brightness of 700 ANSI Lumens, correct specifications, although its price is currently very high.
