The Vensmile U1 is a new Android box powered by the Amlogic S905. However, it doesn’t run stock Android but rather Remix OS 2.0, Jide’s Android fork that attempts to bring a desktop experience to the mobile OS.
The specs are on the high end for Amlogic S905 devices, with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 32GB eMMC storage, Bluetooth 4.0, dual band WiFi and gigabit Ethernet. It’s nothing that we haven’t already seen.
Remix OS is the real draw here, with Jide claiming their OS offers a much more “PC” feel, complete with multi-window support, shortcut keys and a taskbar.
Inside the box, you’ll get the Vensmile U1 box, IR remote, HDMI cable, power adapter and an English user manual
