The M96X PLUS is the latest Android TV box to feature the popular octacore Amlogic S912 processor and running Android 7.1
There’s nothing particularly exciting about the design, though you are getting some pretty decent specs given the unit’s $55 price tag.
The M96X Plus features 16GB of storage, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, dual band wifi (presumably n) and Bluetooth 4.0.
In terms of ports, you get 4 USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot, composite video output (with an adapter), optical audio output (with an adapter), HDMI and Ethernet.
It’ll handle 4K 60fps video playback as well as hardware decoding of H.265 – the latest bandwidth-saving video codec.
Gaming performance should also be solid thanks to the powerful ARM Mali-T820MP3 inside.
If you’re wanting to check out the M96X PLUS, you can grab it for $54.99 with free shipping from GearBest.
