New multimedia box of the most economical range that appears in the great bazaar of Aliexpress, this time under the name of VONTAR Z5 and based on the Rockchip RK3318 4-core SoC.
A small Box that comes to us with Android 10 as a system and that can basically be used as a media player up to 4K @ 60fps resolutions. With it, we can use KODI without problems, most apps, as well as IPTV-type applications without problems. For games, it is not the most recommended box, since its GPU is not very powerful and it is not suitable for use in the apps of paid streaming platforms such as Netflix, since it is not certified.
SoC, RAM and storage
The small VONTAR Z5 integrates as a core the Rockchip RK3318 SoC that has four ARM Cortex-A53 CPUs capable of reaching 1.5 Ghz and a Mali-450 MP5 GPU that includes native H.265 and VP9 video decoding up to 4K resolutions @ 60fps with support for HDR. 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 micro SD card reader that is on the side of its plastic box.
In the field of wireless connections, this TV-Box has Dual Band Wi-Fi aC and Bluetooth 4.0 in all its versions. On the sides of the box we have a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, a 10/100 network connector, a jack for analogue audio and video output and an HDMI 2.0a port that allows up to 4K @ 60fps video resolutions. The classic IR remote control, power supply and an HDMI cable are included to start using this Smart Box right out of the box.
