$38 Nexbox A95X Pro Runs Android TV, Supports Netflix HD

TV box manufacturers should move and more more from Android to Android TV operating systems, so we can expect cheaper TV boxes offering an Android TV experience.

One of those device is Nexbox A95X Pro that sells for $37.99 on GeekBuying (pre-orders shipping in about 4 days), and also happens to support Netflix HD (720p). [Update: The promo on GeekBuying appears to be over, but it’s now available on GearBest for $36.99 with coupon GBA95X1]

Nexbox A95X Pro TV box specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S905W quad core Arm Cortex-A53 processor with Arm Mali-450MP GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB DDR3
  • Storage – 16GB eMMC flash, micro SD card slot
  • Video Output – HDMI up to 4K @ 30 Hz, AV port (composite)
  • Video – 4K 30 fps H.265, 4K 30 fps VP9 Profile-2, MPEG1/2/4, H.264, HD AVC/VC1, RM/RMVB, Xvid/DivX3/4/5/6, RealVideo8/9/10
  • Audio Output – Via HDMI and AV ports, coaxial S/PDIF port
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi (2.4 GHz only)
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 ports
  • Misc – Power/standby LED
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A
  • Dimensions – TBD

 

The device runs Android TV (no exact version listed) with OTA firmware update support, and ships with a voice enabled remote control, a power sdapter, a HDMI Cable , and a user’s manual.

The box comes with 2GB RAM, so performance should be decent for watching videos, although video output and decoding is limited to 4K 30 Hz with Amlogic S905W processor, so if you have 4K content at 60fps, videos may not play smoothly. Bear in mind that another Nexbox A95X Pro has also been selling for a while, but it’s based on Amlogic S905X processor running Android 6.0 operating system, and comes with a standard IR remote control (no voice support), so double-check if you plan on purchasing Nexbox A95X Pro with Android TV.  I could not find the latter outside of GeekBuying for now, but I’m sure other sellers will eventually offer it too.

Thanks to theguyuk for the tip.

Another one (that’s already out of pre-order when shipping from China, but looks to have a crappy remote :p) seems to be this one: https://www.geekbuying.com/item/MECOOL-M8S-PRO-W-S905W-2GB-16GB-TV-Box-with-Voice-Control-391693.html

The Android TV version ships from Germany and China. The Italy and Spain version are the non-voice control version and don’t list Android TV, but just Android 7.1. I haven’t ordered it, but you seem to be correct that some cheap manufacturers are moving from Android to Android TV 🙂

However, as the specs say, it’s not Android TV. So it’s a bit besides to point I’m making 😉

Can anybody confirm that all the Amlogic boxes with Android TV have a locked bootloader? No flashing, no modding, no rooting.

It is down to $36.99 on Geekbuying again. It says on the site that is ‘based on’ Android TV OS

“Android TV OS

Nexbox A95X Pro TV Box is based on the Android TV OS, with high speed and smooth performance, designed to turn your regular TV into a smart one.”

I bought an R-TV BOX MINI+ a few months ago for accessing NETFLIX and streaming TV on demand. The device freezes sometimes and I find it annoying when I need to type in a program name with the clunky virtual keyboard. With some apps (including NETFLIX) the bottom of the display is clipped, a significant problem.
I’m thinking of replacing it, probably with an Android TV box with voice remote such as this Nexbox A95X Pro or the MECOOL M8S PRO W.
Is the voice remote a genuine advance in user convenience and operability or is it just another gimmick offering no real advantage?

You need to know which version you have, hardware and original Android version.

Have you asked the supplier you bought it from?

Also ask on Nexbox website
