The Beelink GT1 is officially the first Beelink Android TV box to be powered by the eagerly anticipated octacore Amlogic S912 chipset.

A listing recently popped up on GearBest, unveiling some details about the new Android box.

The Beelink GT1 will run Android 6.0 and feature 2GB DDR3 RAM, 16GB eMMC storage, gigabit Ethernet, dual band b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

There’s no info on what it’ll actually look like, with Beelink saying they want to keep it a surprise.

The Amlogic S912 is an interesting chip thanks to it’s ARM bigLITTLE design (4 cores for high performance, 4 for low power) and Mali-T820MP3 GPU which should making a solid chip for multimedia and gaming when coupled with solid firmware.

Inside the box, you’ll get the Beelink GT1 Android TV Box, infrared remote, HDMI cable, power Adapter, and an English manual.

Where to Buy the Beelink GT1

GearBest have listed the Beelink GT1 at $80 though I’m not sure that’s the final pricing.

There’s no availability information yet. However, my sources have suggested it’ll be available late August to early September.

If you want to know when it’s available, GearBest have got an “arrival notice” up so you’ll get an email when it’s available.

      You think at this stage company’s would ditch the infrared remotes and go with 2.4 GHz air mouse remotes.

      • It’s been ages since I’ve seen you around here Saor!

        Yeah, definitely wish they’d move to 2.4GHz but guessing its far cheaper to do. The only company I’ve ever seen include a 2.4GHz remote is WeTek.
