NEO U1 is a continuation of our proud trend to consistently construct media hubs of the highest build quality and craftsmanship, which MINIX has become renowned for within the industry.
Vivid 10-bit Colour
NEO U1 supports up to 10-bit colour format, significantly increasing the dynamic range of colors displayed, adding new depths and vibrant picture quality not found on previous Media Hubs for Android™.
Exquisitely Fluid Full 1080p HD & 4k UHD @ 60FPS Video Playback and Streaming
Minix Neo U1 16GB Android Media Player delivers a truly outstanding video playback and real-time streaming experience, handling Full 1080p HD media content with ease. Full 1080p HD video plays perfectly, displaying fine crisp detail and vivid colors of all your movies and TV series.
NEO U1 offers improved application performance and responsiveness thanks to running Android Lollipop 5.1.1 OS. While MINIX’s exclusive launcher presents a clean, well-designed and accessible interface that makes finding what you want easier than ever. Our F.O.T.A (Firmware-Over-The-Air) Update System means all updates will be available to download and install automatically onto your NEO U1.
Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz) 802.11ac Wi-Fi with External Antenna
Minix Neo U1 16GB Android Media Player comes equipped with Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz) 802.11ac Wi-Fi antenna, designed to handle wireless speeds up to 3x faster than last generation 802.11n (this is based on real world results, not marketing talk, and is even better at longer distances as the 802.11ac signal is much cleaner). No more buffering or delays due to slow WiFi! Please note that a compatible 802.11ac Router is also required.
H.265 / HEVC Hardware Decoding Support
Minix Neo U1 16GB Android Media Player comes with 1080p HD & 4k UHD H.265 / HEVC Hardware Decoding support. H.265 / HEVC is the future of video compression - offering nearly double the compression ratio compared to H.264, its predecessor, at the same level of video quality.
4K2K UHD Video Playback
Minix Neo U1 16GB offers 4K2K UHD video playback at 60 FPS, delivering an even clearer and better looking image when watching your media content on larger screens. The 4K2K UHD video playback feature means smoother edges and depth, producing a more detailed picture and a superior viewing experience for Minix Neo U1 16GB TV box users.
16GB eMMC flash memory data storage.
Minix Neo U1 16GB features 16GB of superfast eMMC flash storage available. This alone makes it far better & faster for video than all but top-of-the-range pre-2016 smart TV boxes. Most older boxes come with only 8GB of rather slow NAND flash storage. So not only can the experience be a bit laggy, but you can very quickly run out of space. Not so with the Minix Neo U1!
Penta-Core Mali-450 GPU @ 750MHz
The Penta-Core Mali-450 GPU takes graphic performance on the Minix Neo U1 16GB to the next level. The GPU is focused on maximizing processing efficiency, ensuring the Minix Neo U1 16GB delivers superior image quality and a great graphics experience. The Minix Neo U1 16GB can handle most Android games titles, and would be considered middle-of-the-range in this category. For avid Android gamers a box with Octa-Core Mali-450 GPU such as Zoomtak T8 Plus, based on S812 chipset would be a better option.
Android™ 5.1 Lollipop WITH FULL GOOGLE PLAY STORE SUPPORT
Minix Neo U1 16GB Android Media Player comes pre-installed with Android™ 5.1 Lollipop, offering an array of upgrades and features not available on previous Android™ OS versions including full Google Play Store access for easy app installation. Minix Neo U1 16GB Android Media Player takes full advantage of the improved features of Android™ 5.1, with smoother multi-tasking as users switch between applications with ease.
The next generation 64-bit architecture of NEO U1’s CPU scores best-in class for power efficiency. MINIX prides itself on the minimal power consumption of our Media Hubs for Android™, meaning NEO U1 can be safely powered-on 24-hours a day without any worries about costly electricity bills.
