List of Rockchip RK3288 Android TV Boxes So Far

In the previous years, you’d normally learn about new devices as they get listed on Alibaba or Aliexpress, and that’s how I built my – now very incomplete – list of Rockchip RK3188 based devices. But now companies seem to be anxious to let people know about their new devices even before they hit the market, and albeit I’ve been told full production of Rokchip RK3288 powered Android TV boxes is only planned by the end of July, many companies are already showing off their new devices, even though only the PCBA may be ready, or in development.

Rockchip_RK3288_Android_TV_BoxLet’s go through the list of Rockchip RK3288 quad core Cortex A17 media devices that’s known (to me) so far:

  • No brand D368 – HDMI 1.4 TV dongle with 1 or 2 GB RAM, 4, 8 or 16 GB flash, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac + (optional) Bluetooth, and 2x USB host ports.

  • Starlead Q8 aka Neken M9 – TV box with 2GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB flash, GbE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0, 2x USB host ports, and HDMI 1.4a and AV outputs.
  • CS928 / OTT928 ($114 to $120 – Added 27/6) – TV box with 2GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB flash, GbE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0, 3x USB host ports, and HDMI and AV outputs. It also comes with a built-in 5MP camera.

  • CloudnetGo CR16 (Added 03/7) – TV box with 2 GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB flash, GbE, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0, 3x USB host ports, and HDMI, AV and VGA outputs.
  • MK903V ($122 – Added 02/9) – HDMI Stick with 2 GB RAM, 8GB NAND flash, dual band WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0, 1x USB host port, and HDMI output.
  • Nagrace NT-V6 ($129 and up – Added 02/9) – TV boxes with 2 to 4 GB RAM, 8GB, 16GB or 32GB eMMC flash, GbE, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.0, 3x USB host ports, and HDMI and AV outputs.
  • Tronsmart Orion R28 ($99 and up – Added 02/9) – TV boxes (3 models) with 2 to 4 GB RAM, 8GB, 16GB or 32GB eMMC flash, GbE, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.0, 3x USB host ports, and HDMI and AV outputs.

No prices are currently available, at least from reliable sellers, except for GK388 which is sold for $99.99 on Aliexpress by a seller with lots of positive ratings. But when I try to chat to now inquire about, it seems I was replied in less than a second, most probably by a chat bot, saying “you would get your parcel soon because I am processing your order now ,so we have no time to talk to you” :). Anyway with all these companies launching RK3288 mini PCs, prices are likely to be very competitive.

All the boxes appears to support both 802.11 b/g/n and 802.11ac and Gigabit Ethernet, except one. From this list the box with the highest specifications seem to be Ugoos UT3 as it features HDMI 2.0 output and HDMI 1.4 input, and a version may be sold with up to 64GB flash. There’s no way I can guarantee the specs are correct, but there are still a lot of boxes that list HDMI 1.4, and not HDMI 2.0, and it’s something you’ll have to check before purchasing one, although it is only important if you have, or plan to buy, a 4K TV, and need 60 fps. I have listed all details of the specs such as micro USB OTG, and optical S/PDIF both of which can be found in most full sized Android TV boxes listed above, and all are said to run Android 4.4 Kitkat.

It looks like it’ll be fierce competition when they do come out…

Aside from the RK3288 / RK3188 difference and a camera, the feature list hasn’t changed much since the original T-R42 released back in Sept 2013.

The only 2 features I hope to see at some point is :

1) ATSC Tuner (for OTA HD viewing / PVR recording)
2) Video Input (for Digital Recording of an HDMI/Component or A/V source)

Thanks for the info.

Lets get some hard release dates as well. Tired of waiting for these new devices. Holding back purchasing a new android box cause of these new ones and seem to be kept on getting pushed back.

Want to hear my suggestion? Hold your wallet, and it’s too early to pull the trigger now, rock chip still have a lot of things need to work out, why tronsmart (the brand which always release new model in the first time) haven’t released any information about their rk3288 device? they should usually always get the latest news. the reason is there are still so many things need to be confirmed, the specification, the price, dolby dts support, etc.

That is why all new models will not be launched until 20th or last days of next months. Factories are working hard now.

By the way… not all users will use XBMC and main DD and DTS passthrough or hardware acceleration, most of final users even don’t know what is the meaning of those acronyms. I think every model will be better for one or two things, so you can buy one or another thinking about your main usage.

Maybe someone will want to kill me after say this, but there are better players for Android than XBMC. (Is not only my oppinion, but a general oppinionn after talking with lots of TV Box users).

-What do you want to do with the box?- After this question you can choose the best option for you.

Depends on your needs. I usually use MX Player, for me and my needs it’s enough.

And then, finally when they arrive, you’ve got a stick from the first badge. Even with all these cleaver engineers and testers you’ll probably will find out that something goes wrong. When it’s just a bug fix a new firmware version will solve it, otherwise you where to quick to get one.

Hi, could you do a comparison between all quad board with Gbit ethernet, 4k h265 decoding?
there are rk3288, s812, hi3798, etc., I don ‘t know which one to buy (in the near future).
BTW, there will be chromebox on rk3288. http://suzukisavage.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl?num=1392832676/64
which means the perfect linux kernel on rk3288 is possible. Am I right? 🙂

Thank you for your reply 🙂
so actually the best is to wait a bit for much more stable boxes & for reviews\benchmarks?
