In 2020, there are already some models in the android tv box market that support android 10 system, will you upgrade your android tv box?
At present, the android tv box we searched on the Internet supports android 10 tv box, most of which are Rockchip’s rk3318, and allwinner H616. So today we will introduce the best-selling models of cpu-related products of these two companies.
Rockchip RK3318 android 10 tv box in 2020
Popular low-price TV-Box H96 MAX, which in its version with RK3318 SoC is now sold with Android 10 as a novelty. A box of cheap range that we saw in review a while ago and that for its price is not bad if we take into account its limitations but that can serve us worthily as a multimedia player with KODI or streaming with YouTube.
SoC, RAM and storage
The new TV-Box H96 MAX integrates the new Rockchip RK3318 SoC as a motor that has four ARM Cortex-A53 processors capable of reaching 1.5Ghz and a Mali-450mp5 GPU that includes native H.265 and VP9 video decoding up to in [email protected] resolutions with HDR support. It has versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand by adding a memory card in the included microSD card reader.
At the wireless connection level, this TV-Box has Dual Band WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. On the sides of the box we have a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, 10/100 network connector, analog AV jack and an HDMI 2.0a port that allows up to 4K @ 60fps quality video resolutions. The classic IR remote control and an HDMI cable are included.
Allwinner H616 android 10 tv box in 2020: H96 max H616 Vs X96Q max Vs X96 mate Vs TANIX TX6S Vs T95 H616
Allwinner H6 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor with Arm Mali-T720 GPU was launched in 2017 and made its way into various TV boxes and SBC’s. But last year, we got some news of lower-cost versions of the processor with Allwinner H603 and H6 VC200-OS SoC’s.
Allwinner H616 Processor Advantages in 2020
Allwinner H616 with a Bitfrost GPU, namely Mali G31MP2, meaning it supports Vulkan, and down the line, it could potentially be supported by Panfrost open-source graphics driver. Another positive for the processor is support for Android 10, while AFAIK other H6 processors are stuck to Android 9.0.
Another advantage is low power consumption leading to lower CPU temperature. It might be a process change or some other optimizations in the silicon, we just don’t know at this stage. The illustration also claims a lower “working RAM occupancy rate”, which probably means they optimized Android 10 for a lower footprint leaving for memory for apps. I’m not smart enough to understand the meaning of “decoding code rate”, unless maybe it refers to faster Java bytecode handling.
Let’s go with Tanix TX6S in 2020 specifications for reference:
SoC – Allwinner H616 quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 processor with Arm Mali G31 MP2 GPU with support for OpenGL ES 3.2 and Vulkan

Misc – Power LED
Power Supply – DC 5V/2A
The box runs Android 10.0 with ALICE UX, and Kodi 18 pre-installed. It ships with an IR remote control, a power supply, HDMI cable, and user manual. An optional keyboard or air mouse is also offered.
T95 has similar specifications including 10/100M Ethernet (no Gigabit) but adds an AV port. At first, I thought the processor may not come with GMAC, but the processor was just discussed on linux-sunxi IRC, and the device tree file from the SDK (not public yet AFAIK) indicates a GMAC is present. Allwinner H616 code name is sun50iw9p1 in the source code.
One person has such as box, and the output resolution is stuck to 720p50 in Kodi 18.5. The problem is “The firmware on your device does not implement the modesetting API, therefore you cannot switch modes” according to fritsch, a Kodi developer. So be aware that since Allwinner H616 + Android 10 is still a relatively new platform, there may be a few bugs or missing features.
X96Q MAX Smart TV Box With 2020 Android 10.0 OS
Today, we found a new box named X96Q MAX on AliExpress. This is an upgraded version. The processor is upgraded to SoC Allwinner H616 and runs the latest Android 10.0 operating system.
The TV-Box X96Q MAX includes the SoC Allwinner H616 that integrates ARM Cortex-A53 processors and a Mali ARM GPU-G31MP2. Of this Smart TV-Box we have available in store versions with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand thanks to the micro SD card reader that includes this Box in one of its sides.
In the field of wireless connectivity we have for the X96Q MAX WiFi aC Dual Band with internal antenna and Bluetooth 5.0. As connectors we find in its square plastic box 3 USB 2.0 ports, a 10/100 network connector, analog audio and video output jack, a SPDIF interface for digital audio and a HDMI 2.0a video port. With the accessories we also find as usual an IR remote control so we can start using this Smart TV-Box from the first moment.
X96 mate Smart Box is based on the Quad Core Allwinner H616 SoC and includes Android 10.0 as standard. As memory, we have 4 GB of RAM, the amount that we currently recommend in AndroidPcTV so that it can move freely between apps. A Box, as we say, is correct as a multimedia player but with which we will have problems if we want to use it with many of the paid streaming platforms, since it does not have certificates, and we will be limited to basic video qualities.
SoC, RAM and storage
The TV-Box X96 Mate includes the Allwinner H616 SoC that integrates ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31MP2 GPU.

With the accessories we also find an IR remote control as usual to be able to start using this Smart TV-Box just by taking it out of the box and connecting it to our TV.
H96 max H616 2020 Review:
New version of the well-known low-priced TV-Box called H96 Max that this time comes to us including an Allwinner H616 SoC and is called H96 Max H616.
In this version at least we have a new box with a front LED screen and Android 10.0 as the operating system. A Chinese Box that can be useful as a multimedia player by installing the KODI media player or to use all kinds of Apps including games, emulators and others. To use it with paid streaming apps, it is not the best option as it is limited to low resolution in most services as it does not have the necessary certificates.

The Smart Box H96 Max H616 includes the Allwinner H616 SoC that integrates ARM Cortex-A53 processors and an ARM Mali-G31MP2 GPU. Of this TV-Box we have available in store versions with 2/4 GB of DDR3L RAM and 16/32/64 GB of eMMc storage memory that we can expand thanks to the micro SD card slot that it includes on one of its sides where we can theoretically insert up to 64 GB capacity cards
In the field of wireless connectivity we have Dual Band Wi-Fi with internal antenna and Bluetooth 4.0. As connectors, we find in its plastic box not too many options with 2 USB 2.0 ports, a 10/100 network connector, analogue audio and video output jack and an HDMI 2.0a video output port. With the accessories we also find an IR remote control to be able to start using this Smart TV-Box just by taking it out of the box and connecting it to our TV.
