NEO X5 is MINIX's original Media Hub for Android™, based on a Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and Quad-Core Mali-400 GPU . First released in September 2012, the NEO X5 immediately became one of the most popular and well respected Android TV boxes on the market. It set a precedent for delivering an Android TV box with quality hardware and an optimum amount of connectivity.
NEO X5 has an extensive array of connectivity ports - including 3 USB ports + 1 OTG port, which allows you to plug in a conventional mouse and keyboard to use with the device. Alternatively, the NEO X5 is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 for those wishing to use wireless keyboards and mouses. NEO X5 also comes with Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity; allowing you to share media content, such as videos, music, photos, across devices on the same network.
