The new Smart Boxes equipped with the new AMlogic S905X3 SoC continue to arrive in Chinese stores, which we expect to see sent later this month. Today’s Chinese box that assembles the new Amlogic chip is called T95 MAX Plus and apart from its box design it provides little with respect to the rest of the Boxes that we have seen in its range with the new Amlogic SoC as an engine, which we remember which is an improved version of the Amlogic S905X2.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Smart TV Box T95 MAX Plus includes the new AMlogic S905X3 SoC, a Quad Core manufactured in 12nm that reaches up to 1.9 GHz speed and integrates a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. This SoC has 4 ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores and also an NPU for iA. The VPU is an Amlogic Video Engine 10 with HDR Dolby Vision optional, HDR10+, HDR10, HLG and PRIME HDR among others. This Box is available in versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32/64GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded from the included microSD card reader.
At the wireless connectivity level we find Wifi aC Dual Band and Bluetooth 4.1 for both versions with 4GB of RAM and only WiFi b/g/n without Bluetooth for the model with 2GB of RAM. The connectors included in the plastic box are not many because it has a USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, a 10/100 Ethernet connector, an analog AV interface and an HDMI 2.1 video output. The operating system is Android 9.0 and a basic IR remote control is included.
Price and availability
