Another Chinese Box that we found in AliExpress and that happened without pain or glory given its modest specifications, called this time X88 PRO 30.
A Box that comes with Android 11 as its main attraction, since the hardware that accompanies it is very modest and does not include Bluetooth. This Box is based on Rockchip RK3318 quad-core SoC that is capable of taking video up to 4K UHD resolutions and moving KODI and many apps relatively well, although for games it is by no means the best option we can find.
As always, keep in mind that this Box is not suitable for viewing paid streaming platforms in high video quality as this Chinese Box does not have any type of certificate, and we will have to limit ourselves to the most basic quality.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Box X88 PRO 30 integrates as a central core the Rockchip RK3318 SoC that has four ARM Cortex-A53 processors capable of reaching 1.5 Ghz and a Mali-450 MP5 GPU that includes native H.265 video decoding and VP9 up to 4K @ 60fps resolutions with support for HDR.
Versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32 GB of eMMc storage memory are available that we can expand by adding a memory card in the SD card reader that we see on the side of the box.
In the field of wireless connections, this TV-Box only has Wi-Fi b / g / n, since it does not have Bluetooth, something to take into account. On the sides of the box made of plastic there are ports that are a USB 3.0, another USB 2.0, 10/100 network connector, 3.5 mm jack for analogue audio and video, a SPDIF digital audio output connector and an HDMI 2.0a interface that allows you to get up to video resolutions in 4K @ 60fps quality.
It includes a simple remote control that works by infrared, power supply and all the cables to be able to use it from the first moment.
