New cheap and basic box equipped with the Allwinner H6 SoC, this time it comes under the name of X99 Mini. A typically Chinese smart box that we can use as a local media player without problems thanks to its 4GB of RAM that comes standard and its solvent SoC Allwinner H6 that decodes any 4K video file without problems. A TV-Box with little to comment and that as usual comes to us with Android 9.0 as OS.
