Ugoos S85 Android HDMI TV Stick Features Amlogic S805 Quad Core SoC, Supports H.265 Video Decoding

HDMI TV sticks used to be popular, but as processors became more powerful, it became more and more challenging to put new SoCs in such a small form factor due to thermal issues. For example, there’s no HDMI TV stick powered by Amlogic S802 (4x Cortex A9 @ 2GHz), as even TV boxes may have troubles keeping things cool with two largish heatsinks. But the new Amlogic S805 quad core ARM Cortex A5 is more power-efficient, and Ugoos will soon release S85 model in an HDMI stick form factor. For now, they’ve just published some pictures of the board.

Ugoos_S85_board_backUgoos S85 will run Android 4.4, and that’s about all we know at this stage. The latest quad core HDMI sticks on the market where mostly based on Rockchip RK3188, as well as much less popular ones featuring Freescale i.MX6 and AllWinner A31. This upcoming model will have a slower CPU performance, but a faster GPU, and support for H.265 hardware video decoding.

Maybe it would be time to upgrade from my h.264/1080p media player stick into h.265/2160p media player stick soon…

Still the best stick for general (non-Android) use has been the Ugoos UG802, that stick keeps on ticking, no matter what you do with/to it. 🙂
