Formuler Z11 Series – Model comparison (Z11 Pro vs Z11 Pro Max)
If you are not yet familiar with the Formuler Z11 series, we remind you of the most important features of both devices. The Formuler Z11 Pro and Formuler Z11 Pro Max are closely related in design and share many similarities. Both models come in a compact housing measuring 105x105x21mm and are powered by the Realtek RTD1319C SoC, featuring a Quad-core Arm Cortex A55 processor and a Mali-G57 MC1 GPU, which is an upgrade from the previous Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. This chipset supports impressive features like 4K 10-bit 60fps AV1 / H.265 decoding, HDR, HDR10+, and HLG technology.
However, there are some notable differences between the two models. The Formuler Z11 Pro Max boasts 4GB of DDR4 RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage, providing enhanced performance and ample storage capacity. On the other hand, the Formuler Z11 Pro offers 2GB of DDR4 RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage, which is still sufficient for most media playback needs but may have limitations for heavy users.
