A couple of weeks ago Beelink introduced their new Android TV Box with the new Amlogic S912. The new box is called the GT1.
The box itself it’s simple, made out of plastic and on top we have their brand name and a cool looking like carbon fibre pattern. Unfortunately we only have 2 usb ports available and the wifi antenna it’s sitting on the inside of the tv box.
The box is running Android 6.0.1 and Beelink choose a launcher similar to the one found on the Beelink MiniMxiii. Not a bad launcher, but a bit boring. Since the box comes pre-installed with the Google Play Store it is very easy to install a new launcher like Nova Launcher.
You can find the Beelink GT1 at the following retailers:
The GT1 was the first TV Box with the Amlogic S912 that was able to play all video formats that i have tried. All other S912 boxes have trouble playing 4K@60fps.
Since we are talking about what the box can and can’t do, let’s touch on DTS and DD; Using Kodi, DD sound works flawlessly but DTS cuts in and out every couple of seconds. Hopefully it will be fixed in a future update. Touching on updates, Beelink tends to stay on top of the issues and push constant updates.
