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.

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