The Android-powered TV Box Rockchip RK3368 Octa Core are in the pipeline. Cloudnet, brand active beginnings of category, has prepared the launch of two models in the range, CR, a valuable and comprehensive, the other more cheaply. Named CR18 and CR13 Plus, and will be on sale by July with prices still unknown. The company has already applied their product pages.
Cloudnet CR18 is the better of the two. It has an aluminum frame available in 3 colours (silver, gold and silver) and a front display, Gigabit Ethernet, 3 USB ports ac and WiFi 2.0 and microSD reader, SPDIF coaxial connector. But above all he RK3368 SoC with PowerVR G6110, HDMI output, 2.0 with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB eMMC. The system is Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Cloudnet CR13 Plus is upgrading CR13. Has a basic hardware like CR18, but its chassis is made of plastic, missing the front display and there are no coaxial outputs for audio and video. His is a more similar to rival proposals, but not less interesting and practical. With Android phones and a competitive price, it might also be preferable to CR18 who doesn’t need extra connectivity and a fine looking box.
Rockchip RK3368 is Octa Core chip based on Cortex-A53 to 64-bit with maximum frequency of 1.5 GHz (per core). Among its strengths there is hardware decoding movies up to 4 k x 2 k 4 k h. 265 and handling the exit HDMI 2.0 up to 60 Hz. He speaks from CES 2015, Intel & Rockchip by January, but now only you get to see something concrete. It remains to evaluate the stability of Android firmware (also Android TV) of Cloudnet so it is absolutely inadvisable to impulsive buying.
