MX HD23 Allwinner H3 Android Mini PC Includes an HD Camera

When Android TV boxes started to take off around 2013, a few model would include a camera and sit on top of the TV such as MK818. However I’ve seen less model in that form factor since then, until I came across MX HD23 Android TV Box powered by Allwinner H3 quad core processor and featuring a HD webcam for videoconferencing.

Beside the camera, MX HD23 specifications are pretty standard:

  • SoC – Allwinner H3 quad core ARM Cortex A7 @ 1.2 GHz with quad core Mali-400MP2 @ 600 MHz
  • System Memory – 1 GB DDR3
  • Storage – 8 GB eMMC + micro SD slot up to 32GB
  • Connectivity – 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Video Output – HDMI up to 4K2K @ 30Hz, 3.5mm AV jack
  • Audio Output – HDMI, and 3.5mm stereo audio jack
  • Camera – 2.0 MP front-facing camera with two microphones (up to 5 meter range) and swivel arm. [Update: Only one microphone]
  • USB – 1x mini USB, 1x USB 2.0 host port
  • Misc – Power key, IR receiver, upgrade key
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A via power barrel
  • Dimensions – 93.5×53.5×19.5mm (without stand)
  • Weight – 131 grams

The Android 4.4 TV box ships with an IR Remote control, an HDMI cable, an OTG adapter, a power supply, and its TV stands, and an English user’s manual.

Allwinner_H3_TV_Box_CameraWhile you can always use a USB webcam with other Android TV box, it does not always work very well, and in theory, a device with a built-in webcam should work out of the box with Skype and/or Google Hangouts. Since the device has been out for a few months, I could find some demo videos, but sadly none of the ones I watched actually used the webcam…

MX HD23 TV box can be purchased for $55.07 on Aliexpress, or you can also find it for less than $70 on Amazon US, Ebay, and DHGate.

  1. That is not mini enough, but this device reminds me of the Measy U2C, which also has a 2MP camera and an AV output port. Its camera died just after some uses and its AV output port were so weird that no connector cable would actually work right out of the box without modifying.

  2. I bought this media player from Ebay. Now this media player is stuck on Android logo. Where I can download instruction and the firmware to load firmware again. Any body out there who have information.
    Please help!

  3. I bought this media player from a kiosk at the NC state fair in Raleigh and it worked fine for 3 months and now it is stuck on Allwinner H3 logo screen and will not shut off or do anything. Does anyone know how to reboot this device?

    I’ve asked GearBest again if they could get me the firmware, but the suppliers said they could not provide a firmware file, and just said to “reset” the TV box (not sure what that means here), and click on the update icon.

    I have no idea who is the supplier, but they should clearly be avoided.

  5. Received the same device model HD23 today from gearbest. It is stuck at start screen. Tried pushing the reset button on the side, but no use what so ever. Hope I get a firmware and an upgrade method 🙁
