X98Q S905W2 Android TV Box Overview Features
The small and interesting-looking housing of the X98Q media player hides the well-known Amlogic S905W2 SoC inside.

This Quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A35 processor with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU supports 4K AV1 / H.265 / VP9 / H.264 @60fps decoding. Besides, supports HDR10+ and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) technology. The media player runs on Android 11 OS.
