Beelink i68 TV Box Features RK3368 and Android 5.1

3

The Beelink i68 is a new Android mini PC powered by the octacore RK3368 SoC and runs Android 5.1 from $66. It also features 1 or 2GB of RAM (depending on the variant), 8GB of storage, 2.4GHz or dual band WiFi (depending on the variant), Bluetooth 4.0 and Ethernet.

It also comes with Kodi pre-installed and the marketing materials claim “over 50 most popular Add-ons installed in your KODI” so I’m assuming there’s some pre-configuring going on.

Both versions can be purchased from GearBest from $66 depending on the variant chosen.

    Hi. The Gearbest site seems to suggest you also get 5.8Ghz wifi with the 2GB model. Wondering what the extra Gig of RAM would be good for, mainly games?

    • Hi Henry,

      Thanks for the pickup. I’ve fixed the article now.

      With regards to the extra gig of RAM, it’ll help with gaming, multitasking, using Kodi, etc. I always find getting the model with extra RAM is generally worth it but I tend to push these devices harder than most.

        Cheers, good to know it helps with Kodi as well
