Zidoo X1 II is Zidoo’s RK3229 Android TV Box

0

Zidoo have unveiled the Zidoo X1 II – a spiritual successor to the Zidoo X1 reusing the predecessor’s unique design but powered by Rockchip’s new RK3229 SoC.

Specs are comparable to other RK3229 boxes, with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

However, Zidoo’s box has a few differentiators to justify the unit’s $59 price tag, including their ZIUI interface, learning IR remote, power management chip and unified storage.
Lastly, Zidoo’s support is one of the best for Android TV box manufacturers, with the company releasing regular firmware updates for their products.

The Rockchip RK3229 supports 10-bit H.265 10bit and 4K 60fps hardware decoding, which should be great for those with capable displays.

I’m really hoping that Zidoo decide to produce the unit in more subdued colors than the yellow they’re showing off in the product shots. I think the design is unique enough, without needing to stick out like a sore thumb.

Inside the box, you’ll get the Zidoo X1 II unit, power adapter, IR remote, HDMI cable, and an instruction manual.

The Zidoo X1 II is currently available for pre-order from GeekBuying for $49.
