MECOL KM2 Plus Deluxe Certified Streaming Box Details
Compared to the earlier MECOOL KM2 Plus, the “deluxe edition” version is much different. The housing is white and does not have rounded sides. However, what distinguishes KM2 Plus Deluxe from previous MECOOL’s certified streaming players is the support of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. As we mentioned, the latest streaming box is powered by Amlogic S905X4 (Quad-core Arm Cortex-A55 processor 2.0 GHz with ARM-G31 MP2 GPU) that supports up to 4K @60fps AV1, VP9, HEVC decoding with HDR10 / HDR10+ and HLG HDR processing technology. In addition, the Deluxe edition streamer has 4GB DDR4 RAM and 32GB eMMC storage. Additionally, the streaming box supports dual-band 802.11ax WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and Gigabit Ethernet. Without a doubt, the KM2 Plus Deluxe streaming box can now compete with existing streaming players such as Homatics Box R 4K Plus ($149.99) or RockTek G2 ($149).
As we mentioned, the device is fully certified, so you can enjoy streaming your favorite series and movies from Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, etc., in 4K quality and with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. MECOOL KM2 Plus Deluxe runs on Android TV 11 OS with built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant. Interestingly, unlike previous models, the latest “Deluxe Edition” streamer comes with Google’s G20 reference design Bluetooth voice remote. The remote is longer than the G10 series, and has more buttons (38 keys). However, we still find 4 dedicated buttons (Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube and Google Play) and the characteristic voice assistant button.
