A Box that comes with interesting news because we now have 128 GB of storage and an Amlogic S905X4-J processor.

The RAM memory is 4 GB LPDDR4 soldered on the board and for storage we find eMMc we have 128 GB eMMc 5.0. Since we have a micro SD card reader, we can expand the internal memory this way.
