New Allwinner SoC for Smart Boxes that we found by surprise in the market called Allwinner H616 integrated in a new box called Tanix TX6S. A SoC that follows the wake of the Amlogic S905x2 as it has Cortex-A53 cores and a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU with support for the most modern codecs such as VP9-10 and HDR and that updates the Allwinner H6 with lower consumption and temperatures. The novelty that this SoC brings with respect to the latest Amlogic chips is that it comes with Android 10, although by what we see there is no support for USB 3.0. As always we hope to make a Review of the Allwinner H616 SoC soon.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Tanix TX6S debuts the Allwinner H616 SoC that integrates ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. From this Smart Box there are versions with 2 / 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 8/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand thanks to the microSD card reader that includes this Box.
At the level of wireless connectivity we have WiFi aC and Bluetooth 4.1 with external antenna. As connectors we find 3 USB 2.0 ports, a 10/100 network connector, A / V output jack and an HDMI 2.1 video port. The operating system is Android 10.0 and includes the exclusive ALICE UX launcher of this brand.
