Sunvell R69 Allwinner H2 TV Box Sells for $19.99 (Promo)

Orange Pi Development Boards

$20 Android TV box promotions are fun. After last month, Rockchip RK3229 based A95X R1 TV box promotion, GearBest has another one with Allwinner H2(+) based Sunvell R69 TV box powered by Allwinner H2 processor sold for $19.99 with coupon R69GB.

If you have no interested in Android, the good news is that since it’s based on Allwinner H2+, you can likely run Armbian images, or the recently released RetrOrangePi 4.0 with minor modifications, to have a $20 Linux server or game console.

Sunvell R69 TV box specifications:

  • SoC – Allwinner H2 quad core Cortex A7 processorwith Mali-400MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3
  • Storage – 8GB flash + micro SD slot up to 32GB
  • Video & Audio Output – HDMI 1.4 output up to 1080p60, AV port (composite video + stereo audio)
  • Video Codec – H.265 / H.264 up to 1080p
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi (via XR819 chipset)
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 ports
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A
  • Dimensions – 9 x 9.5 x 1.8 cm
  • Weight – 200 grams

The box runs Android 4.4, meaning Kodi 16.1 is the most recent version you can run. With all the 4K TV box on the market now, it’s worth nothing this one is limited to Full HD.

The box is already somewhat supported by Armbian (‘community supported configuration’): https://forum.armbian.com/topic/4877-h2-sunvell-r69-android-tv-box-aliexpress/?do=findComment&comment=42109

Wrt Android: Allwinner provided a new Android SDK for H SoCs based on Android 7.0. Once we can share this with 3rd parties it might be possible that H3Droid for example gets an update from Android 4.4 to 7.0.

GB’s DIRTY game is on again!
For ~3 hours ago, it was free shipping to Europe. Now though, it’s changed to ~ $3.
F*** GB!

Pretty expensive, S905X boxes used to be as low as 17$ and are much better.

The same on other products; for example “Original Xiaomi Mi LYEJ02LM Bluetooth Headset – BLACK “: 1 day and 1 hour to the end of the flash sale –> put in CART –> SORRY, FLASH SALE IS OVER. F*** GearBest!

Is exprensive as a Android TV Box but is cheap as a Linux computer like Raspberry Pi, because with armbian you have a complete solution including: quad core 1GB RAM 8GB eMMC + box + HDMI cable + powersource

Shame the makers do not give it a NanoPi or OrangePi compatible GPIO

Can it run retroOrangePi. ?

For any of you who took advantage of this deal and wanted to run H3Droid on the board (Android) it is now fully supported. Additionally, we have a new blog post up on the Sunvell R69 discussing some of its caveats and what is needed to get H3Droid to run well: https://h3droid.com/blog/sunvell-r69-my-adventures-with-a-cheap-tv-box

Thanks to all the people who support H3Droid and cnx-software for mentioning us here.

Cheers!
