New Chinese TV Box that we find in online stores and that by its design breaks a bit the monotony that we have in this aspect with a sloping front that shows a small LED screen as the only remarkable aspect.
Its name is S95X W2, and it incorporates the new Amlogic S905W2 SoC, a chip a little lower than the S905X4 in computing and graphics power, but which is in a good position as we have seen in our review. This Box is capable of decoding video of the AV1 codec up to 4K @ 60fps resolutions and with HDR 10+, although it remains without Dolby Vision that reproduces it but downgrading to basic HDR. The operating system installed is Android 11, so we will be up-to-date in this regard.
SoC, RAM and storage
In the new TV Box S95X W2 we find the heart of the new Amlogic S905W2 SoC, a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A35 processors and a MALI-G3 MP2 GPU, a sufficient configuration to use streaming apps, KODI and some simple games.
In this model we have integrated 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM, 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory and a micro SD card reader located on one side of the black plastic box that allows us to increase its internal storage capacity.
As for wireless connectivity inside the S95X W2 we have Dual band Wi-Fi aC with internal antenna and Bluetooth 5.0. In the connectors section, this Smart Box includes 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 2.1 port, SPDIF audio output, micro SD reader, 10/100 network connector and finally an analogue port for audio and video.
Also included in the box is a simple infrared remote control, power supply and all the necessary cables to get it started right out of the box.
