It seems that the Rockchip RK3318 cheap range SoC is having some success in the cheapest Smart Boxes, since they do not stop appearing lately in models of these prices.
The VONTAR DQ6 is the novelty that today and that basically stands out for including an external Wi-Fi antenna that complements another internal one and that has to improve Wi-Fi reception. Of the rest of the specifications little to comment, since they are the normal thing that we find for their price, enough to use it as a media player with KODI even with 4K files. The operating system is Android 10.0 although it must be taken into account that these cheap boxes do not usually receive updates.
SoC, RAM and storage
The new TV-Box VONTAR DQ6 integrates the Rockchip RK3318 SoC as an engine that integrates four ARM Cortex-A53 processors capable of reaching 1.5 Ghz and a Mali-450 MP5 GPU that has native decoding of video codecs H.265 and VP9 in up to 4K @ 60fps resolutions with HDR support. It has versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand by adding a memory card in the included micro SD card reader.
In the field of wireless connections this TV-Box has in all its versions Bluetooth 4.2 and Dual Band Wi-Fi with external antenna + another internal one. On the sides of the box we have a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, a micro USB OTG, 10/100 network connector, SPDIF output, analogue audio and video jack and an HDMI 2.0a port that allows you to output up to video resolutions in 4K @ 60fps quality. The classic IR remote control is included although we have the option to buy this box with a remote control with microphone included.
