You have to be careful in AliExpress with some sellers who are willing to scam us, as is the case with the one that sells the TV-Box Q96 X3.
This is the typical 100% deceptive product, since in theory it offers us ANDROID 13 as OS, a version that is not available for the Allwinner H313 processor. For more shame, the thing does not stop here, since we can even buy versions with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage memory, something impossible to manage due to the cheap-range Allwinner SoC that mounts this Box, and that is offered for less than $25.
In short, be careful with this type of product, which is later a problem to claim our money back.
Q96 X3 Specifications
The Android Box Q96 X3 includes the low-end SoC Allwinner H313 as its engine. This is a Quad Core chip with ARM Cortex-A53 processors that integrates Mali-G31 MP2 GPU with native decoding of h.265 and VP9 codecs and support for HDR10 video.
We have on board versions with 2/4/8 GB of DDR3 RAM memory and 32/64/128 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded from the micro SD card reader that this equipment includes on the side of its plastic box.
Regarding wireless connectivity, this TV Box only has Wi-Fi b/g/n, it does NOT have Bluetooth. As connectors, we only have available an HDMI 2.0 video output, a USB 2.0 port, a 3.5 mm jack for analogue audio and video and an RJ45 10/100 network connector.
A basic quality IR remote control, cables and the usual 5V/2A charger are also delivered with this mediaplayer.
Price and availability
- The Q96 X3 Smart Box with Allwinner H313 SoC can be purchased on AliExpress from around $20 with shipping included. Naturally, we do NOT recommend its purchase for any reason.
