Coowell V4 is an RK3368 Android TV Box with a Retractable Camera

Coowell V4 looks like another typical Rockchip RK3368 Android TV box with 2GB RAM and 16GB flash, except for one little detail: it features a retractable camera to use with Skype, Google Hangouts and other video conference apps. Most Android mini PCs already claim support for USB UVC cameras, but in my past reviews I noticed that my camera were not always properly recognized in one or more apps, so in theory. the built-in camera is more likely to work with all app, since the company has (probably) tested it.

Coowell “Smart Media Hub” V4 specifications:

  • Video Output – HDMI 2.0 up to 4K60, and AV ports
  • Audio Output – HDMI, AV, and optical S/PDIF
  • Camera – 2MP retractable camera (with built-in microphone?)
  • Connectivity – Ethernet (RJ45) port, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports, 1x micro USB OTG port

The device runs Android 5.1, and ships with a power adapter, HDMI and AV cables, an IR remote adapter, and a user’s manual. One advantage of having a retractable camera is that once you’re done, you can close it, and you don’t need to worry about potentially hackers or the government spying on you or your family.

Coowell V4 is sold on GearBest for $68.99 shipped, and on various Aliexpress shops for $67 and up. The device looks similar to CS928 / OTT928 TV box powered by Rockchip RK3288 processor.
