When Ugoos AM6B Plus 2021 TV box was introduced with Amlogic S922X-J and WiFi 6, we noted the company was working on UGOOS AM7, a more affordable TV box that also supports WiFi 6, and comes with the latest Android 11 running on Amlogic S905X4 processor with 4K AV1 video playback.

The TV box runs Android 11.0 with Google Play, OTA firmware updates, and ships with a Bluetooth remote control with voice search and gyroscope by default. The firmware also comes with the usual “Ugoos Settings” that include root on/off, SAMBA server, wireless assistant (mobile remote control app), gamepad settings, hardware monitor, support for custom user scripts, etc… You can check Ugoos AM6 review for a look at some of those settings. The main advantage of going with WiFi 6 is the ability to steam 4K video over WiFi without buffering.
Note that you’ll pay significantly more than for the comparable Mecool KM6 Deluxe ($80 on Aliexpress) that is still at Android 10, but for specific use cases like business, Android 11 and the custom options may make sense. The 12-minute video shows an unboxing and a first boot (not an actual review) which reveals the standard Android 11 launcher, and not Android 11 for Android TV launcher.
