New Box that appears in the great bazaar of Aliexpress under the name of RK88 MAX Plus and whose main bait is its operating system, which is the recent Android 11.
Within this basic range Smart Box we have the Quad Core Rockchip RK3318 SoC as a motor, from which you can see its performance in our review of the Box H96 MAX. A team with little to contribute to what we see in this sector, it is basically a basic media player suitable for solvent use of KODI and other multimedia players, since it is capable of decoding video without problems up to 4K UHD resolutions. If we plan to use streaming platforms such as Netflix and others, it is better to opt for other models, since it does not have the necessary certifications for this.
