A95X Max Plus S922X TV Box Targets Gaming with Wii-like Motion Sensing Remote & Bluetooth Gamepad

Unless a new processor is out, we don’t cover most TV boxes as they mostly provide the same features with little differentiation between products. But the manufacturer of A95X Max Plus TV box has decided to leverage the excellent gaming performance of Amlogic S922X processor, by bundling the device with a Wii-like motion-sensing remote control and a Bluetooth gamepad. The mechanical design is quite different from competing products as well.

A95X Max Plus TV box specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S922X hexa-core big.LITTLE processor with 4x Arm Cortex A73 cores, 2x Arm Cortex A53 cores, Arm Mali-G52MP GPU; 12nm process
  • System Memory – 4GB LPDDR4 RAM
  • Storage – 64GB eMMC flash, microSD card slot
  • Video Output – HDMI 2.1 up to 4K @ 75 Hz, AV port (composite)
  • Video – AVE-10 engine with 4K UHD H.265/VP9/AVS2 video decoding up to 60 fps, Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and PRIME HDR high-dynamic range support
  • Audio – Digital audio via HDMI, stereo analog audio via 3.5mm AV jack, optical S/PDIF
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi 5, Bluetooth 4.1
  • USB – 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 OTG ports
  • Misc – Power button
  • Power Supply – 5V/2.5A via power barrel jack
  • Dimensions – 12.50 x 7.50 x 7.50 cm
  • Weight – 300 grams

The TV box/game console runs Android 9.0, and ships with an HDMI cable, an IR remote control, a power supply, a user manual, and the aforementioned Bluetooth gamepad with motion-sensing remote control.

One should always take marketing materials with a grain of salt, but it looks like it may be possible to use two sensing remote controls at the same time if the photo showing two little girls playing football together bears any resemblance to reality…

I don’t see them carrying any remote either. There’s something that looks like a red LED on top of the USB port, so I wonder if it could be a depth-sensing camera, but it’s not documented at all, and if that was the case it’s really a big omission. Another important point is that they did not list the games compatible with the motion sensor only saying “there are more motion-sensing games to discover”. I’m not even sure the football game pictured above does actually exist.

I found the new TV box while browsing Banggood new arrivals feed, and if you feel adventurous, you could purchase it on their site for $138.99 including shipping, Note that it is the pre-order price, and it will go up to $149.99 as time passes.

  1. Speaking of news chips, anyone know any details about the Allwinner-based Zuiki Z7213 ( found in new Sega Genesis \ Megadrive mini )

      1. Cannot speak the native language so unsure of original source but it is mentioned on YouTube review, online review and the wiki. But if it’s beyond available knowledge here, oh well.

      2. It’s very simple, it’s the sad state of reviews these days: one person first speculates that it’s AW and writes about it publicly. Another one cracks the box open, zooms on the SoC where it’s clearly written “ZUIKI” but since someone said it was AW it’s still assumed to be so. Then it’s relayed everywhere by those discussing the product just to show they’ve seeked more info than average, and that’s how misinformation spreads. I’ve looked at the video, it’s clearly *not* written AllWinner on the chip at all. Even better, when you go to their web site you clearly see ZUIKI opposed to AW. I suspect instead that this company first used AW in some of their products then acquired an ARM license and are now producing their own SoC to increase revenue for higher volumes.

      3. And I quote:”Mizuki is Japan’s sole agent of Allwinner, the world’s leading fabless SoC manufacturer.”
        The only two Zuiki-branded chips are the ones in Sega Genesis Mini: the CPU (most likely the cheapest rebranded Allwinner R-series[or maybe the ole-good A10], cause it’s more than enough for emulation and has similar footprint), and re-branded USB HID controller (probably another re-branded off-the-shelf part). I can further speculate that this is due to Sega’s quirky requirements of using Japanese parts, so Zuiki had to license Allwinner’s old IP and manufacture at USJ (e.g. UMC Japan, e.g. Fujitsu).
