MXQ 4K RK3229 Android TV Box Sells for $29.99 Shipped

This morning I wrote about Sunchip CX-R9 TV box based on Rorkchip RK3229 that is said to be selling for $32, as long as you buy 1,000 pieces, but the new Rockchip SoC might truly disrupt the low-end market, as MXQ 4K RK3299 TV box has just launched on GeekBuying where it is sold for only $29.99 shipped.

MXQ-4KThe device runs Android 4.4 with Kodi 16, and the specs list 10-bit H.264 and H.265, without mention of VP9 (but it should support it up to 4K @ 30 fps), and will ship with an IR remote control, an HDMI cable, a power adapter and a user’s manual.

With a quad core Cortex A7 processor the device won’t be a top of the benchmark charts, and GeekBuying reports 21,134 points in Antutu 6.0, but if you just want to play 4K videos at 60 fps, or even just 10-bit H.264 (Hi10p) videos, you can certainly not beat the price. I hope to get a sample soon to check it’s actual video playback abilities.
