Nexbox A1 is an octa-core TV box with 4K support


While it’s the phones, tablets, and other gadgets that usually make the headlines here at GizChina, another category gaining traction amongst Chinese makers are TV boxes.

Newest from China is the Nexbox A1, which is an Amlogic S912 powered device with decent-ish specs. This include: 2GB of RAM, 16GB ROM and an Android 6.0 installation.

That said, the highlight of this device seems to be 4K x 2K H.265 decoding. That, and system flexibility; it features 2.4GHz + 5GHz WiFi, which considering the kind of interference 2.4GHz networks have, is definitely a great addition… and perhaps something that will very soon be a standard.

The device is currently only on pre-sale though, and should be shipping in a month or so. It might be a good idea to wait for reviews, for very similarly spec’d device can be had for a lot less.
