CS918T Quad core Android TV Box with HD Webcam Sells for $60

CS918T is an Android TV Box powered by Rockchip RK3188 quad core SoC with the usual 2GB RAM, 8GB Flash, and various ports such as HDMI, USB, Ethernet, etc… that also features a 2MP webcam, and sells for just $59.99 including shipping on Aliexpress. The box does not appear to be related to CS918 / KR-42-1 that was popular a few months ago.

CS918T_Remote_PortsThis mini PC runs Android 4.4 with Google Play, and comes with a 5V/2A power adapter, a micro USB adapter / cable, HDMI and AV cables, an IR remote control, and a user’s manual in English.

There does not seem to be a system to install the device on top of the TV, but at $60, it looks much better value than camera enabled quad core mini PCs like Jesurun NX003II, or Tronsmart NX. CS918T is actually $30 to $40 cheaper than these, and I thought the seller on Aliexpress may not have made a pricing mistake, but I could find it on Ebay for $67, so the price seems plausible.

Thanks to Gabe for the tip.

Could the T in the name be because the CPU is RK3188T ?

Even if it’s a T, it seems a bit of a bargain…

@Gabe Sure, but a lot of these box-style devices have 2 or more full size USB ports. eg

or if you don’t need the camera:

That said they’re both RK3188T devices…

quad core & 2GB RAM and a lot more for only 59.99 USD? How can complete, assembled devices be so cheap compared to bare ARM-boards?

Oh: can it run Linux?
