This box mounts on board 4 GB of DDR4 RAM base memory and 32 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded from the micro SD card reader included on one side of the box quad. The box surprises us by its amount of holes that will perfectly ventilate this hardware.
In the field of wireless connectivity we find integrated in a Wifi aC 2R2T Dual Band board and Bluetooth 4.2 with an internal and external antenna. The connectors included in the plastic box are quite rare, we have a USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, a Gigabit Ethernet connector and an HDMI 2.1 video output.
