Whilst we’ve been inundated with new Amlogic S912 Android TV boxes almost daily, the new VORKE Z1 is somewhat different.
Although powered by octacore Amlogic S912 like many other Android TV boxes before it, it also features 3GB of DDR4 RAM which offers higher bandwidth than the DDR3 RAM seen in other similar boxes. This should theoretically translate to higher performance though that remains to be seen.
The rest of the specs are pretty much the same as what we’ve seen before. It features 32GB of eMMC storage, dual band wireless AC, Gigabit ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0.
It’ll run Android 6.0 and the listing seems to suggest that it’ll ship with Kodi 17.0 (which is currently in Beta).
Inside the box you’ll get the VORKE Z1 Android TV box, IR remote, power adapter, HDMI cable, and an English instruction manual.
