In early March we informed you about the new VENZ V12 Ultra TV Box from Venztech, and today we want to show you the unboxing of VENZ V12 Ultra Android TV Box. If you do not remember (below the specification) then we remind you that VENZ V12 Ultra is a new flagship TV Box from Venztech with 3GB RAM DD4, 16GB eMMC and well-known Amlogic S912. For those who have not yet had a chance to familiarize themselves with the Venztech company, we also remind you that this Chinese manufacturer through the branch office in the Netherlands (VENZTECH B.V.) very strongly wins customers in the European market. VENZ V12 Ultra is supported by 3-years warranty in Europe covered by Venztech B.V. and exclusive partners (it is probably the only TV Boxes manufacturer to offer customers such a guarantee).
