It seems that electronic scams are on the rise on AliExpress lately, and today we found a new TV-Box called V88 Mini with impossible specifications.
This is a small multimedia box with a very attractive price with an Allwinner H3 SoC that dates from the year 2014. A SoC that is ONLY capable of managing 2 GB of RAM and decoding 4K video at 30fps, although in the announcement it is presented with versions with 4 and 8 GB of RAM and the ability to reach 8K resolution. The storage memory with a version with 128 GB for only $25 is also on trial, without comment….
V88 Mini Specifications
The Smart Box V88 Mini includes an Allwinner H3 Quad Core SoC as an engine manufactured in no less than 40 nm. A Chip with ARM CORTEX-A7 processors that reach up to 1.2 Ghz and an ARM MALI-400mp2 GPU.
The RAM memory is theoretically 4/8 GB of DDR3 RAM, something impossible. For storage, there are versions with 32 and 128 GB of eMMc memory, although we also have a micro SD card reader.
For network connectivity, we have Wi-Fi b/g/n and a 10/100 Ethernet port. The rest of the connectors are an HDMI 1.4 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports and finally an analogue audio and video output. As usual, a basic IR remote control, cables and power supply are supplied with the V88 Mini.
