New Smart Box that we find in the catalogues of Chinese online stores with the name of RX3-UL and that as is the most common is framed within the cheap range that is around $35.
A Box based on the Rockchip RK3328 Quad Core SoC and that comes with a base configuration with 4 GB of RAM that allows us to use it fluently as a 4K UHD media player with KODI. An interesting point of this Box is the inclusion of storage memory of the eMMc 5.0 type, quite fast and rare in these cheap players. The OS is Android 9.0 and it comes with a basic remote control to be able to use it from the first moment.
