Rockchip demonstrated the Rockchip RK3528 TV box SoC at Mobile World Congress 2023, and the first Android 13 TV boxes based on the processor are now showing up for sale starting with the LEMFO X88Pro 13 TV box.
The device comes with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, supports up to 8Kp25 video decoding, features Fast Ethernet and WiFi 6 networking, as well as a few USB ports, and possibly optical S/PDIF audio output.

The TV box ships with an infrared remote control, an HDMI cable, a 5V/2A power supply, and a user manual. We only get preliminary specifications, because the company achieved the incredible feat of not including a single photo or render showing the ports on the sides of the device, but we can rely on the earlier RK3318-based X88Pro 10 model to get an idea.
The Rockchip RK3528 powered X88Pro 13 TV box provides an upgrade with support for the latest Android 13 operating system, 8K video support, and WiFi 6 connectivity. The product description also lists support for KODI 18.1 (probably a modified version),Vudu, Youtube, etc… Something that appears to be lacking on the RK3528 processor is support for AV1.
LEMFO sells the X88Pro 13 TV box for $53.98 to $85.98 on Aliexpress depending on the RAM and storage capacity, and whether an air mouse is included.
