MINIX To Launch Four New NEO Set-Top Boxes: X5+, X5 Mini, X3 & X7

MINIX is a company relatively well know for its Neo G4 mini PC and Neo X5 Android set-top box based on Rockchip RK3066. They’ve now announced 4 new devices for HKTDC Electronic Fair in Hong Kong:

  • Neo X5+ – RK3066 Set-top box based on Neo X5, but with 2GB RAM instead of 1GB RAM.
  • Neo X5 Mini – Low cost version of the Neo X5 with 8GB NAND Flash instead of 16GB, and missing Bluetooth support.
  • Neo X3 – Android 4.1/4.2 Set-top box powered by AMLogic AML8726-M3 with 1GB RAM, 4GB Flash, and 802.11n Wi-Fi. No word about Ethernet support.
  • Neo X7 – Android Media Player based on Rockchip RK3188 with 2GB RAM, 16 GB RAM, HDMI, Ethernet, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth support.

The full specifications are not available yet, but the design of the box is nice, although it might not be to the taste of everybody, and I find it looks like the back of a sport car…

Geekbuying reports that MINIX NEO X7 should be available in July, but the company has not disclosed the price yet, and the NEO X5+ should be available in May for about $119 US. The 2 other models will start to sell in May as well but the price hasn’t been announced.

    Please.. Minix is REALLY well known as an OS, and for the book, also maybe for Linux..

    @Xuxa
    Damn that’s embarrassing! I got the product name wrong. At least I was consistent with my mistake… I changed all Geo to Neo. Thanks for letting me know.

    I meant the company, but you’re right, minix is also used in a few other places.

    Perhaps they should concentrate on making the abysmal X5 work properly before floating out a new raft of products.
