The R-BOX Pro is a new Android TV box powered by the octacore Amlogic S912 SoC.
Shipping with Android 6.0, the R-Box Pro comes in two versions. The high-end model ships with 3GB of DDR3 RAM, 16Gb of eMMC storage, dual band b/g/n Wifi, gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0.
There’s also a slightly cheaper model that drops to RAM to 2GB to save a few dollars.
The R-Box Pro’s design looks interesting, with marketing images suggesting that it’ll feature illuminated trim that can be either red or blue (presumably based on the unit’s power state).
There’s no info on what sort of launcher will ship with it, though expect the usual apps such as Kodi to come pre-installed.
Inside the box, you’ll get the R-Box Pro Android TV box, power adapter, remote control, IR extension cable, HDMI cable and a manual.
