New Box of the China Mecool brand that continues to take out Smart Box equipped with the S912 SoC from the previous generation of Amlogic chips. This time it is called Mecool LOLA Sp8 PRO and it is nothing more than a version of the Mecool M8S Box that this time includes RAM of the DDR4 type and repeats the rest of the specifications. As we find Android 7.1, an outdated version and a SoC Chip that continues to size up as we saw in the review of the Mecool M8S MAX. A box that could be very interesting but is very penalized for its old version of Android.
