New version of the cheap range Smart Box X96 Max that this time includes a Quad Core Allwinner H616 SoC as an engine that already has Android 10 as an operating system.
As always, little to highlight of this cheap-end Smart box that we can basically use as a 4K media player with Kodi, for example, games, emulators or for IPTV, since it is not recommended as a player for paid streaming platforms, since it is not certified. As always, the attraction of this type of Smart Box is its price, since we cannot expect great things from its hardware or regarding update support.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box X96 MAX includes the Allwinner H616 SoC that integrates ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31MP2 GPU. Of this Smart TV-Box we have available in store versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand thanks to the micro SD card reader that this Box includes on one of its sides.
In the field of wireless connectivity we have for the X96 MAX Dual Band Wi-Fi with internal antenna. As connectors, we have in its square plastic box 2 USB 2.0 ports, a micro USB OTG port, a 10/100 network connector, analogue audio and video output jack, a SPDIF digital audio interface and an HDMI 2.0a video port. With the accessories we also find an IR remote control as usual to be able to start using this Smart TV-Box from the first moment.
