Another cheap box that we found in oriental stores, TX3 MINI+ includes the recent AMlogic S905W2 SoC, a very interesting chip as you can see in our analysis of this SoC.
The TX3 Mini+ is a basic range box, which does not include bluetooth and is basically oriented to multimedia playback, but it is not recommended as a streaming player for paid platforms, as it lacks certificates to display them in maximum quality. It stands out for its ability to decode video with the AV1 codec up to 4K@60fps resolutions and with HDR 10+. The operating system is Android 11 so in this aspect and that guarantees us enough life for this device, normal Android apps that will not cause us problems with this Box and for mid-range games will also be worth us.
SoC, RAM and storage
Inside the TV Box Tanix TX3 Mini+ we find as heart the new SoC Amlogic S905W2, 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 game.
In this model we have integrated on board 1/2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM, 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory and a micro SD card reader located on the side of the black plastic case that allows us to increase its internal storage capacity.
In terms of wireless connectivity within the Tanix TX3 Mini+ we only have Dual Band Wifi with internal antenna, as it does NOT have Bluetooth. In terms of connectors, this Smart Box includes 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 2.0b port, SPDIF audio output, micro SD reader, 10/100 network connector and finally an analog 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 up and running right out of the box.
