Amlogic S905 Android TV Boxes, Sticks, and Digital TV Receivers Are Coming Soon

Amlogic S905 is the first 64-bit ARM processor of the company, with four Cortex A53 cores, a Mali-450MP GPU, as well as support for HDMI 2.0, and 10-bit HEVC video decoding. It will come to market before S912 processor featuring a Mali-T7xx GPU, and compete with Rockchip RK3368 octa-core processor.

I’ve already features two Amlogic S905 TV boxes a few months ago with Acemax G9C and Eny EM95, but these two products were announced several months before the actual release, and now several other products have been announced, and should become available very soon. Geniatech unveiled two products based on Amlogic S905: ATV495 Android TV box, and ATV1950 Android digital TV receiver with dual ATSC, DVB-T, or ISDBT tuners, while Guleek A8 is an Amlogic S905 Android TV stick.

The stick is one of the rare Amlogic S905 products currently listed for sale, and you can find it for $75 + shipping on Aliexpress. The seller has good feedback, but there’s no way to tell whether the TV dongle is really ready to ship or not.

All three devices run Android 5.1, and Amlogic S905 is the first low cost SoC that supports both HDMI 2.0 and 10-bit HEVC. In my past reviews, I’ve also noticed that video capabilities of Amlogic based devices in Kodi and Antutu Video Tester are usually much better than competitors such as Rockchip, but we’ll have to find out with actual devices.
