Xtreamer Wonder Might Be the First Android Media Player Powered by Amlogic S812

Amlogic S812 processor is an upgrade of S802 processor with HEVC/H.265 hardware video decoding up to 3840×2160 resolution, and Gigabit Ethernet support, and it looks like the first Android TV boxes will start shipping by early November, starting with Xtreamer Wonder “TV entertainment system” running Android 4.4 Kitkat and XBMC / Kodi.

Xtreamer Wonder specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S812-H quad core cortex A9r4 @ 2 GHz with Mali-450MP6 GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB DDR3
  • Storage – 16GB  eMMC 5.0 + micro SD card reader
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.4
  • Audio Output – HDMI, optical S/PDIF
  • Video Container Formats – DAT, MPEG, MPE, MPG, TS/TP, VOB, ISO, AVI, MP4, MOV, 3GP, FLV, MKV, M2TS, MTS, M4V, WMV, ASF, RM/RMVB, etc…
  • Audio Formats – MP2, MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG, OGA, FLAC, ALAC, APE, AAC etc… Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital+, and DTS
  • USB – 3x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A
  • Dimensions – 13.8 x 16.6 x 2.8 cm
  • Weight – 190 grams.

The box will run Android 4.4 Kitkat with Xtreamer ver 2.0 UI, and ship with Xtreamer AirMouse, an HDMI cable, a power adapter, and a quick start guide.

There should not be hardware differences between S812 and S812-H SoC, expect the latter will come with an SDK supporting Dolby Digital & DTS with the right licenses, and any media app in Android should be able to handle these audio formats. 5-ch and 7-ch pass-though is said to be supported too.

Amlogic S812 is also supposed to support Gigabit Ethernet, but this box seems limited to 10/100M Ethernet, which could be an issue with some high bitrate (>60 Mbps) 4K videos, so the only advantage using S812-H or S802-H with this device is H.265 support.

Xtreamer UI v.2

Xtreamer Wonder is currently available for pre-oder for 99 Euros ($139 US) with shipping scheduled for October 31, 2014. Further details about the device and its air mouse, can be found on Xtreamer Wonder product page.

    You’re welcome and thanks you for your daily blogging, credit goes to the user @theone on the HT forums.

  2. Any box serious about utilizing it’s potential 4K capability, should come with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 along with gigabit Ethernet and I do hope its not another box that downscales 4K playback to 1080p first !?
    Unfortunately any Android based media box is video crippled until Android TV (with Android L) comes out that will finally be able to support auto framerate detection (assuming existing boxes will get the updates ?).
    However, it’ll probably make a great 2nd media box if your after a box with a fancy GUI and apps, rather than accurate video playback?

    Coming with an AirMouse is nice, but why do these remote types have to forgo having useful direct navigation buttons (ie Stop/Play/Next) just make them look clean and simple?

    @cnxsoft Please keep your eyes out for any info on the soon to be released Dune-HD TV-204 Which should be interesting as it will contain a proper video oriented chipset, from the once thought dead company, Sigma.

    Maybe they forgot to change the text… Anyway, even though it will decode 4K videos, and should output 4K over HDMI, it’s likely the video will be downscaled to 1080p somewhere during processing, but they all do that.

    @FatMatt
    Thanks about the Dune-HD tip. I can’t find RSS feed/news subscription their site however, so I may miss further news…

    I use their news page into feedly which gives me updates. http://dune-hd.com/eng/news. Seems to be a long tme coming thou, now expected early 2015.

    Seems all wrong these new HEVC capable players badge themselves with 4K when they all downscale first :/ ? Maybe they should be tagged “pseudo 4K capable”

  5. @cnxsoft Can You ask Xtreamer to provide this Wonder madia player for testing? I see no real test results of this product performance. I’ve placed order and been waiting for delivery since October and still product is not availible. Might be possible that this product not existant at all.

  6. According to their forum they are shipping because users already have devices. But wonder how much of them got the device.
    Xtreamer is known to announce devices way to early and then can’t deliver in time.

  7. @vpeter
    Finally i got it at the end of Dec’2014, it looks great and it is working flawlessly.
    Now I’m wondering if CEC is supported with this device.

  8. The Wonder does not run Netflix in HD only very very Jerky SD plus BBC I player does not work either its a very poor product
