After almost three months of drought, something new is coming in the world of Android smart boxes. Since today we find on Aliexpress the Box Transpeed X3 Pro that includes the interesting AMlogic S905X3 SoC and Android 9.0 as the default installed operating system.
A cheap range that for less than $32 allows us to smartize our TV with an open platform such as KODI as a multimedia player, even in 4K or as an Android gaming console by downloading them from the Google store. This Box allows streaming to be played on payment platforms, although only in basic quality, as is usual in these Chinese Boxes.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box Transpeed X3 Pro includes the AMlogic S905X3 SoC, a Quad Core made in 12nm that reaches up to 1.9 GHz speed and integrates a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. This SoC has four ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores and also an NPU for iA, you can see the power of this SoC in a comparative article of the S905X3. The VPU is an Amlogic Video Engine 10 with optional HDR Dolby Vision, HDR10 +, HDR10, HLG and PRIME HDR support. This Smart Box is available in versions with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 32/64GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded from its microSD card reader that we find on the side of its plastic box.
The Transpeed X3 Pro has network connectivity level with Dual Band Wifi aC, Bluetooth 4.1 and a RJ-45 Gigabit network connector. The connectors in the box are the usual ones with a USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0 port, a microUSB OTG port, SPDIF audio output, an HDMI 2.0a video output and an analog audio and video output jack.
The operating system is Android 9.0 and a basic IR remote control is included in the basic pack although we have the option to buy it with all kinds of extra controls even with a microphone included.
