Rikomagic RKM V3 Rockchip RK3328 TV Stick Launched for $63

We’ll know find plenty of devices powered by Rockchip RK3328 from TV boxes to development boards, but if you are interested in getting an Android TV stick based on the processor, I’m only aware of Rikomagic RKM V3 which the company unveiled in September.

However, at the time the TV dongle was not for sale yet, and the company has just launched it for $62.90 including shipping on Aliexpress.

RKM V3 specifications have not changed since the announcement, except we can have info about size and weight:

  • SoC – Rockchip RK3328 quad core Cortex A53 processor @ 1.5 GHz with Mali-450MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 2 GB RAM
  • Storage – 8 GB eMMC flash + micro SD card up to 32 GB
  • Video & Audio Output – HDMI 2.0a up to 4K @ 60 Hz with HDR10 and HLG support
  • Video Codec – 4K VP9, H.265 and H.264. 1080p VC-1, MPEG-1/2/4, VP6/8
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2
  • USB – 1x USB 2.0 port, 1x USB 3.0 port
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A via power barrel jack
  • Dimensions – 110 x 48 x 22 mm
  • Weight – 325 grams (for package?)

The stick runs Android 7.1, and ships with a power supply (EU, US, UK, or AU plug), and a short female to male HDMI cable.

RKM V3 is about the same price as Zidoo X7 TV box, and cheaper than their RKM V5 TV stick ($83.90) powered by Rockchip RK3328, but you do pay a premium compared to some RK3328 TV boxes with the same 2GB/8GB configuration such as T98 4K going for under $50.

What is the market for these TV Stick devices? Hackers (small market)? Asia?

Reason of my question: I can’t believe people around me would buy this device. People around me do have 1) STB from ISP, and/or 2) chromecast (39 euro), and/or 3) AppleTV, and/or 4) SmartTV/AndroidTV. None have a TV Stick.

Too expensive for a crappy chipset but Rikomagic always like to overcharge.

It doesn’t come with any kind of remote. supposedly you can use an android app, but I could not find one that works with it.
