Another low-end Box that we found in AliExpress based on the Rockchip RK3528 processor, this time called Q96 HD-1 and which stands out for having Android 13 as OS.
A new generic Android Box that comes with similar, if not identical, hardware to other Boxes we’ve seen with the RK3528 SoC before. The Q96 HD-1 stands out for its unique decoration, for carrying Android 13 as the operating system and Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. For the rest, a low-end Box with a processor that is greatly outdated today, and that makes it not recommended.
Q96 HD-1 Specifications
The Q96 HD-1 includes a Rockchip RK3528 SoC as its engine. This low-end Chip is a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and a modest ARM MALI-450 MP2 GPU whose clock speed is unknown.
For RAM we currently have a version with 2 GB DDR3 and 16 GB for storage. We also have a micro SD card reader so we can always expand the storage memory up to an extra 64 GB.
In the field of wireless connectivity, we have Wi-Fi 6 with internal antenna and Bluetooth 5.0. As connectors, we find in its square plastic box a SPDIF digital audio output connector, USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, 10/100 network connector, 3.5 mm jack for analogue audio and video output and a port for HDMI 2.1 video output that allows us to take video up to 8K@60fps resolutions.
A simple infrared remote control, power supply and HDMI cable are delivered with the Q96 HD-1 to be able to start using this Box just by taking it out of the box and connecting it to our TV.
