New generic Box that arrives in Chinese stores based on the AMlogic S905X4 SoC with a circular design and called this time APV 98 PLUS.
As usual in Boxes with Amlogic S905X4 SoC, the output operating system is Android 11, and we have enough power to move any APP, video up to 4K, all kinds of games and many emulators. You can read our review of the S905X4 compared to other processors for more information.
The APV 98 PLUS does not stand out especially in anything and as we always warn you, do not expect support for updates to its software or for the apps of paid streaming platforms to function beyond basic video quality. Finally, note the price of this box, which seems to be made of gold.
