TV98, new and tiny basic TV-Stick with Android 14

Android TV-Sticks are gaining presence in the market after a good season almost disappeared and today we found another one, called TV98.

A small multimedia player that this time works with Android TV 14 as a system and with a SoC such as the Allwinner H618 that supports decoding for the AV1 codec and evolves the Allwinner H616. The configuration of this TV-Stick allows it to be used without problems as a multimedia center up to 4K UHD resolutions or to run apps of all kinds, including emulators and games, as long as they do not have too many graphic needs. It will also work well as a content receiver, as we can broadcast from our smartphone, since it supports DNLA, AirPlay and Miracast.

On the TV98 it is better to forget about updates, although according to advertising it has them via OTA and it is not suitable for watching video in maximum quality in apps of paid streaming platforms. Although it has a direct access key to Netflix on its remote control is a deception, for streaming is better other certified options.
