ZTE ZXV10 B860H is an Another Android TV Media Player based on Amlogic S905X Processor

It looks like Xiaomi Mi Box (US) will have some competition, as ZTE is about to introduce their ZXV10 B860H TV box at Broadband World Forum 2016 in London. The device will run Android TV on a quad core Amlogic processor, which can only be Amlogic S905X, the same processor used in the Xiaomi box,  since VP9 is now a requirement for Android TV operating system, and HDR is part of the specifications.

ZTE ZXV10 B860H “Android TV” box specifications:

  • SoC –  Amlogic S905X (-H?) quad core ARM Cortex-A53 @ up to 1.5 GHz with penta-core Mali-450MP GPU @ 750 MHz
  • System Memory – 2GB RAM
  • Storage – 8GB flash
  • Video Output – HDMI 2.0a up to 4K @ 60 Hz with HDCP 2.2, CEC, HDR10 and HLG HDR
  • Video Codecs – VP9 Profile-2 & H.265 MP-10 up to 4K @ 60 fps, H.264 AVC up to 4K @ 30 fps, H.264 MVC up to 1080p60
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi 2×2, and Bluetooth 4.1

One obvious advantage over the Xiaomi device is the presence of an Ethernet port. B860H runs Google’s Android TV OS, and is said to be “fully integrated with ZTE’s Smart Home Services such as Multi-Screen, HD Video Call, Family Album, Home IoT Network and Voice Assistant”.

Price and availability have not been revealed yet, but we may learn more tomorrow with the official announcement. For reference Xiaomi Box is sold for $69 in the US, so ZTE B860H will have to be priced about the same to be competitive.

Having looked at the review of the mi box I have to say not very impressed box seems underpowered for the tasks it sets itself amlogic 905(x) can do 4k but don’t ask it to do anything else at the same time. Here the review of it if u would like to see.
