Google ADT-2 is an Android TV Dongle for Developers

You may remember we covered a “4K ATV Stick” last month, as a mostly unknown manufacturer (Shenzhen SEI Robotics) applied for FCC certification, with the device featuring a large G marking, leading some to speculate it may be an upcoming Google device.

At the time, I dismissed it, and believed if was just another Chinese “Android TV” or “Android” TV device, but Google has now released a similar looking Android device which probably means I was wrong…

It’s not a consumer device however, and after Google ADT-1 Android TV developer kit launched in 2014, Google has now unveiled ADT-2 developer device that runs Android P developer preview with Google Assistant.

ADT-2 OTT HDMI stick specifications:

  • SoC- Amlogic S905X quad core Cortex A53 processor with Arm Mali-450MP GPU

    1. Don’t hold your breath. I read a American article where xiaomi said they planed no update soon. Most of their work is on their China specific OS.

    2. Heh… I’d be more happy getting a Libre Computers’ Le Potato or similar booting Android TV. Should be able to do something like that… You’ll get more attention if we take the reins ourselves and do it ourselves.

  1. I saw this dongle on Ali Express a couple weeks ago…

    On the S905** Android Boxes: Is it true that total bandwidth limit would be 240 Mbps each way because the fast ethernet port goes through the USB2 hub internally?

    How about for RK3229+ designs?

    And how might the bandwidth allocations look like on GigE- USB 2/3 designs?

    Most Android Box designs internally seem to have one USB2 OTG port(s.) How can the master slave modes be switched under Linux Armbian or Android OS?
