A Box with Android 11 as a system that is commanded by a powerful Amlogic S905X4 SoC, capable of decoding the latest generation AV1 codec with its hardware without flinching. The TANIX X4 is fully suitable for use as a 4K multimedia player, with KODI or similar, to run games and many emulators, but it is unsuitable for using paid streaming platforms, since it does not have certificates to view them in good quality.
Remember that you can read our review of the Amlogic S905X4 processor that is capable of playing video files encoded with AV1. Interesting Box for a price we haven’t seen for a long time.
