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:

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.

While 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.
