S805X2 AV1 Android TV dongles and TV boxes are starting to show up

Amlogic S805X2 AV1 capable processor was first teased as an update to S805X and S805Y Full HD TV box processors in 2019 with very little details. But companies have started to list some S805X2 based Android dongles and TV boxes.

That means we also have additional details for the processor, and we’ll look into SDMC DV9035 TV box and SEI Robotics SEI103 dongle, neither of which should be sold to end-users, but instead OEM’s or content providers.

SDMC DV9035 S805X2 TV box

S805X2 TV boxThe TV box runs Android 11 on Android TV operating system, supports Google Play and Google TV services,  Chromecast, Google Assistant, as well as streaming applications such as Netflix, YouTube, Sling and Hulu, etc.. Operators can opt to run the standard or a custom operator-tier Android TV launcher.

Additional details may be found on the product page.

SEI Robotics SEI103 dongle

SEI103 S805X2 Android TV 11 dongleSEI Robotics device looks more like a Google Chromecast, and the company lists the following specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S805X2 quad-core Arm Cortex-A35 processor with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB DDR3
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC flash (16GB as option)
  • Video Output – HDMI up to 1080p60 with HDR support
  • Video Codecs – AV1, VP9, H.265, H.264, VC-1 etc…
  • High-dynamic Range – HDR 10, HLG, optional Dolby Vision
  • Connectivity – Bluetooth 5.0 or higher
  • DRM – PlayReady, Widewine L1, Verimatrix, Irdeto

I suppose there’s WiFi as well since that one does not seem to come with Ethernet. SEI103 is a Google certified Android TV OTT stick/dongle, but the company says it’s running Android TV 10 or higher. Netflix and Amazon Prime VIdeo are both pre-certified as well.

There’s no pricing either since it’s for operators, but you can be able to find more information on the product page. As a side note, last time I wrote about SEI Robotics, it was about their S905X4 developer kit, and one person who purchased it after reading the news on CNX Software only received it after six months, and it arrived with a broken capacitor and without access to a software development kit.

Amlogic S805X2 vs S805X and S805Y

SMDC also provided a (partial) comparison between Amlogic S805X2, S805X, and S805Y.

Quad-core Cortex-A35 up to 15K DMIPS
Quad-core Cortex-A53 up to 11K DMIPS
Quad-core Cortex-A53 up to 13K DMIPS
Arm Mali-G31 MP2
Arm Mali-450 MP3
32-bit DDR3/3L/4, LPDDR2/3 up to 4GB DDR2666
16-bit DDR3/4, LPDDR2/3, up to 3GB DDR240
16-/-32-bit DDR3/4, LPDDR2/3, up to 3GB DDR240
Video Decoder
1080p60 10-bit AV1, H.265, VP9 P-2, H.264, AVS2, MPEG4/2/1
1080p60 10-bit H.265, VP9 P-2, H.264, AVS2, MPEG4/2/1
HDR10/10+, HLG

On the video side of things, the most important new features and AV1 and (optional?) HDR10+ support, and the processor should even be faster with 15K DMIPS, the more modern GPU should enable support for OpenGL ES 3.x/Vulkan 1.x, and the system supports up to 4GB RAM, although that’s unlikely on the ultra-low TV box targeted by S805X2 processor.

SDMC further explains Amlogic S805X2 consumes 35% less and is 25% more efficient thanks to the Cortex-A35 core and 12nm process which allows Amlogic to increase the frequency. At the same frequency, a Cortex-A53 should be faster than a Cortex-A35, but Amlogic S805X2 must be clocked at up to 2.1 GHz considering 1.78 DMIPS/MHz, while S805X runs at 1.2 GHz and S805Y at 1.4 GHz.
