X96S a TV-Stick with the new Amlogic S905Y2 Quad Core SoC


We already have in stores an interesting novelty with the recently announced SoC of AMlogic called S905Y2, a product oriented to the mediaplayer format on TV-Stick for which it is specifically designed. Under the name of X96S we find on Aliexpress.com a TV-Stick that includes this new SoC that promises major improvements in video quality and that has native support for video up to 4K@75fps resolutions. As always in this format the connectivity options are very small although at least we already have a USB 3.0 port between them.

SoC, RAM and storage

The TV-Stick X96S includes the commented AMlogic S905Y2 SoC a Quad Core manufactured in 12nm with ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31mp2 GPU. The included RAM is 2 / 4GB LPDDR4 and the storage is 16 / 32GB eMMc. In theory, a SoC with which we will not have problems when using it as a media player or for games.

The operating system installed is Android 8.1.
