There are many cheap range boxes on AliExpress, and today we find one called X96A that despite its low price, only $18.64, has some interesting features.
We see that an AMlogic S905L entry-level Chip includes the same Quad Core SoC that the well-known Xiaomi Mi Box S uses and that it has enough power to move most apps and even play 4K UHD content at 60 fps without problems. It also includes 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, very correct figures considering its price. The operating system advertised in Android 10, although we are inclined to think that this is not true and that we really have an older version modified to look like it.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box X96A has an Amlogic S905L SoC, a Quad Core with 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores capable of reaching 1.5 GHz and an ARM Mali-450 MP5 GPU. On the board we have 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded from using a pendrive through one of its USB ports.
The X96A includes regarding Wifi aC and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless connectivity with internal antenna. The connectors are two USB 2.0 ports, RJ45 10/100 network connector, HDMI 2.0a 4K @ 60fps video output with HDR support and AV interface for analogue video and sound.
As always, a basic IR remote control, power supply and cables are supplied to use this Box from the first moment.
