R-Box Pro Android 6.0 TV Box Features Octacore Amlogic S912 and 3GB RAM

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).
