Today we find in China a curiosity in the world of Android Boxes since we have a new team based on a SoC of the well-known ZTE brand, called MXQ Pro, thats a very original naming. A TV-Box based on Android 7.1 with little to offer, since we doubt that it ever receives any firmware update and with a price that can not compete with boxes that mount SoC’s of better known brands and proven solvency.
SoC, RAM and storage
This version of the TV-Box MXQ Pro includes as engine the ZTE ZXIC ZX296716 SoC, a Quad Core with Cortex-A53 ARM processors capable of reaching 1.5Ghz and a Mali-450mp5 GPU with native support for H codec decoding. .265, VP9, which is capable of playing video up to 4K@60fps resolutions and has support for HDR. In terms of RAM and storage, it includes 2GB of DDR3 RAM and 32GB of expandable eMMc storage memory thanks to the included microSD card slot.
In the MXQ Pro we also have a b/g/n Wi-Fi network with an internal antenna although it does not include Bluetooth. At the level of connectivity we find on the sides of the box a pair of USB 2.0 ports, 10/100 network connector, analog audio and video jack, SPDIF port and an HDI 2.0a video output.
