The WeChip V5 is a new Chinese TV Box that is trying to make it to an already crowded market of cheap Android TV Boxes.
The V5 is powered by the Amlogic S905X CPU paired with 2GB of Ram and 16GB of Internal Storage. There is also Android 6.0.1 running on this device.
This TV Box is trying to be different by having a cool looking LED light at the front. (see review video below) This light can be controlled from the remote control that comes with it.
The V5 is not available on too many websites yet because it was just launched, but it will have better availability in the upcoming weeks.
You can find it on
Aliexpress : http://ali.ski/lazEpl
Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2lxlbsq
On the left side of the device there is a slot for an SD card and one of the two USB Ports. Since the box is running Android 6.0.1 we can easily install an SD card as internal storage.
On the back we have the 2nd usb port, the port for the power adapter, HDMI & AV out and the Optical Audio. DTS & Dolby Digital sound works great with KODI.
Software wise, as i mentioned before we have Android 6.0.1 running on it with a custom launcher. Software optimization is average and i have seen other tv boxes with the same CPU that seem to be a bit faster. The Google Play Store, Netflix, Modbro are among many applications that come pre-installed.
