$35 MK808B PRO 4K HDMI TV Stick is Powered by Amlogic S905 Processor

MK808 family of Android TV sticks has been relatively popular starting with MK808 & MK808B based on Rockchip RK3066 dual core processor, followed by MK808B Plus with Amlogic S805 quad core processor, and now MK808B PRO has been launched with the same form factor but featuring an Amlogic S905 64-bit processor combined with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage.

MK808B PRO specifications:

  • SoC –  Amlogic S905 quad core ARM Cortex-A53 @ up to 2.0GHz with quad core Mali-450MP GPU up to 750MHz
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3
  • Storage – 8GB NAND + micro SD card slot up to 32 GB
  • Video & Audio Output – mini HDMI 2.0 up to 4K @ 60Hz
  • Video Codecs – 4K H.265 @ 60 fps, H..264 @ 30 fps
  • Connectivity – WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 1x USB 2.0 host port, 2x mini USB port (one OTG, one for power only)
  • Power Supply –  5V/2A via mini USB port
  • Dimensions – 88 x 32 x 16 mm
  • Weight – 30 grams

The device runs Android 5.1 and comes pre-loaded with the same launcher as on MINI MX, as well as Kodi with some pre-installed add-ons. If you don’t like the launcher, you can always use the instructions provided in EM95 review for a more classic launcher, and you could also re-install a clean version of Kodi 16.0. MK808B PRO ships with an OTG cable, a short mini HDMI to HDMI cable, a mini USB to USB cable, a power adapter, and a user’s manual.

GeekBuying informed me about this new product which they sell for $34.99 shipped, but it should also soon be listed on other resellers.

  1. I was about to buy the Plus and may still. The only advantage of this is 4k 10 bit really? Both only have 1 gb memory so 64 bit means little and both are 28nm? The other already has an after-market openelec build ready to go. Suppose I could wait till last second to buy as the penta-core gpu is better than the quad-core and maybe clocked higher? And the cpu is 2ghz compared to 1.5ghz so if dual boot would notice on android. I only have 1080 TV and haven’t encoded in 10 bit on it so as far as openelec they are effective the same for my use?

    Cortex A53 @ 2.0 GHz should be quite faster than Cortex A5 @ 1.5 GHz.

    For video playback it usually does not really matter, but for games and other apps you should notice a difference.
    MK808B Plus won’t be able to play 4K videos at all, but MK808B PRO will be able to play 4K video downscaled to 1080p on your TV.

    I’ve read OpenELEC was running on MINIX MX and/or K1 Plus already (both based on Amlogic S905), so it might also work on MK808B PRO. At this stage though, you’ll probably get better support on MK808 Plus, and there are quite a few people already owning the device, so in case you have issues it could be easier to find a solution.

    I see. Considering the memory and similar specs I think I’ll settle for the Mini M8S; wouldn’t be needing it to move around so size and portability isn’t an issue. Thanks for the input.
