Today we return to the load to discuss a new Android TV with which we have encountered that has called us much attention. This is the Nexbox A95X, a device which we have already spoken before but now comes in an updated version much more powerful, and you can still get a competitive price for less than 38 euros.
And the manufacturer realized that while the previous version was very interesting to have a price of about 20 euros, your hardware actually did not measure up to the moment of truth. For this reason the new A95X have installed a SoC Amlogic S905X version with four high-performance cores operating at a speed of 2 GHz, and are accompanied by a GPU ARM Mali 450 MP. It has also doubled the amount of RAM, which now stands at 2 GB, so that the system is not collapsed as we see a few applications open.
This SoC is capable of playing content to 4K resolution without problems, and in fact have updated the firmware to support more video formats (ASF, AVI, DAT, FLV, ISO, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, RM, RMVB, TS, VP9 and WMV) Your video output HDMI 2.0 is also compatible with Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD technology, admitting the connection of external sound systems. They have also doubled internal storage, which goes from 8 to 16 GB, and the ability to support memory cards in SD format now expanded to 32 GB. Speaking of firmware also updated the operating system version, now it runs on Android 6.0 that is much lighter.
Of course, the equipment incorporates OTG USB ports for connecting flash drives and external hard drives and play content directly from them for the user’s convenience (and if you do not want to rely on Internet). Moreover, as incorporates a remote control, we can “hide” near the television and we can control it from the comfort of your couch.
The Nexbox A95X features WiFi 802.11 b / g / n LAN port RJ-45 connection in this case is 10/100, but still has enough bandwidth for playback of content in high definition (4K theme would rather for streaming Netflix and the like). Finally, note that has a matte black design looks good anywhere, especially because its size (9.3 x 9.3 x 1.5 cm) and weight (77 grams) make it fit anywhere.
And now the good. We said that the first model cost about 20 euros, and logically it with improved hardware is more expensive. Yet in the online store GearBest we can get for just 37.11 euros with shipping included if when making the purchase use the discount coupon GBA95XS, so we think that considering the big difference that will yield over the previous model, the price increase is definitely worth it.
