It seems that new TV-Boxes are appearing on sale again, in this case we find the Transpeed X4-100 that integrates the powerful Amlogic S905X4 SoC that seems to recover some market share with respect to the popular S905W2.
This Smart Box with Android 11 has a very similar configuration to other similar devices. In this device we have up to 4 GB of RAM is able to decode the AV1 codec thanks to the presence of the latest generation SoC. This is an Android Box suitable for use as a media player, with KODI or similar, to run games and many emulators. It is little suitable for use with paid streaming platforms, due to the fact that it does not have certificates to display them in the best video quality, for that we have other alternatives.
