MiniX NEO X5 Android Smart TV Box

The MiniX NEO X5 is a Android device designed to be plugged into your LCD TV.  It plugs into your TV via a HDMI port and connects to your Internet connection either via WiFi or a LAN cable, converting your TV into a desktop.

Out of the box the MiniX NEO X5 comes with Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich, but it is upgradeable to Android 4.1.1, Jelly Bean. The MiniX NEO X5 is powered by a dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor with Mali 400 graphics and 1 GB of RAM. This makes is as powerful as a Samsung Galaxy S II. Basically, what was state of the art in 2011. Storage is 16GB, which can be expanded via a SD Card slow or it can be connected with external storage to a USB port.

The MiniX NEO X5 comes with a small remote control, but is primarily designed to be controlled by a keyboard and mouse or a gamepad. In addition to the USB port supporting USB-on-the-Go, it has an IR receiver and Bluetooth to connect to your peripherals. Apps from the MiniX NEO X5 are downloaded from Google Play. Since these apps are designed for a touchscreen, not all will work optimally with a keyboard and mouse.

The MiniX NEO X5 is priced at Php3,999.


  1. Newegg and Amazon.

    Wait for the new one. This was one is a little sluggish when using it with the 1080P firmware and kernel. It's very snappy when using the 720 firmware and kernel. There is a minix forum.

    1. Sorry, did not realize you guys were not in the US. Never mind about the Newegg and Amazon.

    2. Thanks for the link to the forums.
