A Box that already comes with at least Android 12 as the system and finally supports hardware decoding for the AV1 codec. The rest of its hardware falls within the normal range and allows us to use this box as a multimedia center up to 4K UHD resolutions without problems or to install and use apps of all kinds, including games, without too much graphic demand.
As always, in this type of Box, it is better to forget about updates to new versions of Android and remember that they are not suitable for viewing videos in the highest quality in the apps of paid streaming platforms.

As connectors in its plastic box we find 2 USB 2.0 ports, a 10/100 network connector, an analogue audio and video output jack and an HDMI 2.0a video output port that allows us to take video up to 4K@60fps resolutions.
