New low-end box that arrives at stores this time with the name of R-TV BOX RK10 and that almost always arrives in a quadrangular plastic box of the most basic. This box is moved by RK3328 SoC and has a more expensive version that includes remote control with microphone which makes us think that it also has Android TV as OS, at least in this version instead of Android 8.1. The rest of specifications attract little and especially when we are in front of a mediaplayer that surely has a limited support of updates.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box R-TV BOX RK10 includes the Quad Core Rockchip RK3328 SoC that integrates ARM Cortex-A53 processors and a Mali-450mp2 GPU that includes native H.265 and VP9 video decoding up to 4K@60fps resolutions with support for HLG HDR. We also find 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded by adding a memory card to the included microSD card reader. A SoC that defends itself well as a multimedia player and with KODI but with a GPU a bit scarce for some 3D games of last generation in which we will have to lower the resolution.
The wireless connectivity of this TV-Box is basic since it only has WiFi b/g/n with internal antenna. On the sides of the black plastic box we find the few interfaces of this box, a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, 10/100 network connector, analog AV jack and an HDMI 2.0a port with support for even video resolutions to 4K@60fps.
