Minix Neo X7 quad-core mini PC is out

Written by Fuad Abazovic

$139 or less, great performer

The Android mini PC market has been booming for quite some time, and if you want to make a smart TV out of your dumb TV, a cheap Android mini PC is a good way to do it. Following the success of the X5, Minix has launched a quad-core successor powered by Rockchip RK3188. This chip comes with four A9 28nm cores clocked at 1.6GHz and Mali 400MP graphics.

 

Minix Neo X7 comes with an external Wifi antenna, supports dual band WiFi, full HD 1080p, 2GB DDR3 RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi Hotspot option, Miracast as well as Airpin DLNA application. It comes with 16GB of flash storage.  It ships with Android 4.2.2 and on board you’ll find three USB 2.0 ports, an SD card reader, Ethernet port, optical Audio, HDMI and recovery bottom as well as 3.5mm headphones and microphone outputs.

The Minix Neo X7 is already on sale and Amazon.com has it listed with shipping date for August 31st while some other retailers already sell the new Neo. Amazon sells it for $149 while we found Geekbuying selling them for $138 with free shipping. You can get one here, with shipping 3 to 7 days from order.

The device looks like a decent extension for your TV and it will play 1080p from just about anything consuming only a few watts.
