Amkette, the well-known brand name in the power bank industry forays into all new segment in India by launching Amkette Evo TV 3 setup box with 4K streaming capability. The smart setup box is priced at INR 7,999 in India and will be available via online e-commerce websites.
Though the company is not new into this part of the business, their Amkette Evo TV 2 was not that of a great product, considering the features it offered in comparison with the price tag. However, this time around, the brand has understood the market and have come up with a smart offering that makes the consumer happy.
One may ask what is this? Usually, the Amkette Evo TV 3 4K is like Chromcast or Amazon fire stick which can turn your boring LED or LCD TV into a smart TV by plugging it into the HDMI port. With active LAN or WiFi connection, one can enjoy Browsing, Watching online content via YouTube, Amazon video, and Netflix (if you have a subscription). So, it’s like a magic witch that turns KRK to SRK (pun intended).
So, here is the list of tech specifications for the Amkette Evo TV 3 4K. The modem is powered by a 64-bit Octa-core processor with 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 8 GB onboard storage with a dedicated full-sized micro SD card slot (up to 128 GB). In terms of operating system, the device runs on the custom version of Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 which is tweaked to look good on a large platform like LED or LCD TV as well as the modern day projectors.
In terms of features, the device offers support for Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound (requires a proper speaker to enjoy the same) with WiFi 802.11 g/n, support for latest video formats like H. 265 and VP9. The smart model also happens to support Bluetooth 4.1, which helps you to pair the smart Bluetooth speakers into the model wirelessly. Probably, this is the cheapest add-on which happens to offer HRD compatibility whenever the HDR content is available.
Here is the official product statement from Rajiv Bapna, Director, Amkette:
“Evo TV 3 sets the benchmark with its cutting-edge technology and Ultra-HD 4K picture with HDR and 7.1 channel surround sound,”
As smart TV’s are usually priced way more than the normal TV’s and the technology always comes up with something new. Buying a regular TV and making it smart by the modular way does save some money and also helps the consumer to enjoy top-of-the-line technology.
