We are surprised to find in the market a new TV-box equipped with Allwinner H3 SoC, a Chip that has been on the market for about 3 years and that we have basically seen only in a few development boards. Sunvell H3 is the name of this new Box that includes this Allwinner’s SoC and that basically draws our attention to has installed Android 7.0 as operating system a fairly modern version of the Google OS for what is this SoC. Anyway, this chip has little to do with other more modern and powerful solutions from Amlogic and Rockchip.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Box Sunvell H3 as we discussed includes SoC Allwinner H3 with four CPU cores ARM Cortex-A7 and a Mali-400MP2 GPU that has native decoding of h.265 and VP9 codecs by hardware. It also includes 2GB of DDR3L RAM and 16GB of storage memory that we can expand thanks to the microSD card reader that we find on the side.
At the level of wireless connectivity we have WiFi b/g/n and the interfaces available on the sides of the plastic box are 2 USB 2.0 ports, a 10/100 network port, analog audio and video outputs and an HDMI 2.0 video output which allows 4K@60fps resolutions with support for image with HDR colors.
