In November the UGOOS company announced the launch of two new devices with Amlogic S905 – AM1 TV Box and AM2 Dongle. UGOOS yesterday announced the arrival soon of a new TV Box called UGOOS UT4 equipped with Rockchip RK3368. As you can see UGOOS company is not idle, and develops a line of its products.
RK3368 is a very popular chip, which supports H.265 video playback in hardware decoding and output true 4K resolution video 60fps through HDMI 2.0. So PCBA layout seems very similar to UT3s at first sight. But when you try to check all in details you see that only SoC with RAM, transformer, USB 2.0 hub and LAN Realtek chip (100M/1000M Base-T) stay almost on the same place. All other chip layout is different. So AV audio chip find a new place on board, location of Wi-Fi/Bluetooth moves closer to SoC and it’s place now is busy by NAND chip. Certainly Wi-Fi antenna moves with AP6335 chip too. It supports 2.4GHz/5GHz WiFi 802.11 b/g/n. Amount and layout of connectors are totally the same. Led lights, power and recovery buttons are also on the same places. Bottom side shows us another two RAM chip with 512 Mb each (in 4Gb RAM version they will be replaced by 1Gb each).
