TOX2 is an HDMI TV stick powered by Allwinner H313 quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 processor that we first found in an X96Q TV box. The device runs Android 10 operating systems and happens to provide Ethernet connectivity, a rarity for this form factor.
The dongle also comes with 2GB LDRR4 RAM, 16GB eMMC flash, and dual-band WiFi 5, and supports 4Kp60 video output through a male HDMI 2.0 port.

TOX2 mini TV Stick ships with an IR remote control, an IR receiver extension cable plus 3M sticker, a short HDMI extension cable, and a USB C to USB A cable for power. In theory, it might be powered from the USB port of your television, but it’s usually better to use a proper power supply for good stability.
As we noted in our article about X96Q Allwinner H313 TV box, the new processor is meant to provide an alternative to Allwinner H3, Amlogic S905W, or Rockchip RK3229 processors with a more recent version of Android, and support for 4K H.265 video decoding up to 60 fps.
I received information about TOX2 by email with some photos and an excel spreadsheet, but no link. Having said that, there are several sellers on Aliexpress that offers the TV dongle for $37.4 and up including shipping with options for various air mice.
