It seems that there is no end to the Chinese TV-Box models that we see lately based on the SoC RK3328 and that include 4GB of RAM since there is no week that we see one of them. This time we have to present the new model called SII that with a minimalist design and size vaguely reminds us of the Xiaomi Mi Box even in its limited number of ports. Regarding this mediaplayer we don’t have new features, we found the classic Android 7.1 and with a more than predictable nonexistent update support.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box SII features the Quad Core Rockchip RK3328 SoC as a engine, this chip includes 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 have 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 32 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded by adding a memory card in the included microSD card reader. A SoC that defends itself perfectly as a multimedia player and with KODI but with a GPU a bit fair for some next-generation 3D games at maximum detail.
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 few interfaces of this equipment, a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, 10/100 network connector, analog AV jack and finally an HDMI 2.0a port that lets you take video at resolutions of even 4K @ 60fps.
The classic IR remote control and an HDMI cable are included among the accessories.
