UGOOS AM8 debuts the new Amlogic S928X processor

We already have for sale in AliExpress the first TV-Box that includes the new Penta Core Amlogic S928X processor, the UGOOS AM8.

A Box that undoubtedly stands out for the presence of the new Amlogic S928X chip, highly anticipated for its support for Dolby Audio/Dolby Vision and which we hope to see in review soon. This new SOC looks like it could be behind the Rockchip RK3588 in power, although ahead of the Rockchip RK3568. We also have in the UGOOS AM8 a renewed metal box where its two external antennas stand out, although the general design is the usual one for this brand.

We are surprised to find Android 11 as the operating system, a somewhat outdated version compared to the competition that is already using Android 13. As usual in this brand we have updates via OTA and in the software we find functions to activate the superuser, Samba server, autostart and many more utilities.
