The TV-Box with 4GB of RAM are on the way to be the new standard, leaving aside the 2GB especially after the disembarkation of the new Amlogic SoC’s. A configuration that we remember came hand in hand with Rockchip RK3328 SoC which is the one that includes this new Box with Android 8.1 called M4K a device with little news beyond its box and as usual in its class comes without the support of any brand, something that you have to think about when buying it.
SoC, RAM and storage
The M4K Box features SoC Quad Core Rockchip RK3328 with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-450mp2 GPU that includes native decoding of H.265 and VP9 video up to 4K @ 60fps resolutions with support for HLG HDR. Also included in the board are 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 32 GB of eMMc storage memory, which can be extended by adding a memory card in the SD card reader included in the side. A SoC that defends itself perfectly as a multimedia player and with KODI but with a GPU a bit fair for some 3D games of the latest generation.
The wireless connectivity of this TV-Box is basic since it has WiFi b / g / n with internal antenna and Bluetooth 4.0. On the sides of the plastic box we find the interfaces of this equipment, a USB 3.0 port, three USB 2.0, 10/100 network connector, analog AV jack, SPDIF audio port, microSD card reader and an HDMI 2.0 port to. The classic IR remote control and an HDMI cable are included among the accessories.
