MINIX NEO U9-H Android TV Box Now Available

The MINIX NEO U9-H is a MINIX’s latest Android TV box powered by the quadcore Amlogic S912-H. It’s currently available from GearBest, GeekBuying and Amazon starting from $139.90.

Thanks to its use of the -H variant of Amlogic’s chip, it’s one of the few Android TV boxes that includes licences for Dolby and DTS. This results in a better multimedia experience.

In terms of specs, it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and features 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB of eMMC storage, dual band Wireless AC (with MIMO for improved performance), Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth 4.1.

Interestingly, it also seems to support both Microsoft PlayReady 3.0

and Google Widevine L1 DRM solutions. However, the MINIX NEO U9-H isn’t a Netflix certified device so HD Netflix may not be supported but the appropriate DRM is available.

The MINIX NEO U9-H seems to use an identical case as the recent MINIX NEO U1 (Read my review). It’s a basic design but it fits in well with other home theatre devices.

Inside the box, you’ll get the MINIX NEO U9-H Android TV box, IR remote, OTG cable, HDMI cable, power adapter, WiFi antenna and a user manual.
