OTA, short for over-the-air, refers to the box’s ability to upgrade the system version online. An important feature of OTAs is that updates can be sent to all users from a central location that cannot reject, break, or change them and that updates are immediately applied to everyone. OTA upgrade is a standard software upgrade provided by the Android operating system. It has powerful functions and can upgrade the system without loss. OTA upgrade packages can be downloaded automatically over the network (such as WIFI or 3G), and automatic upgrades can also be performed by downloading OTA upgrade packages to SD cards. OTA upgrade package is very small, usually several M to 10 M, if you use a network upgrade, very convenient, is basic on the system click on a few completes the upgrade, and most importantly, OTA upgrade without backup data, only a few minutes to get all the upgrade work, all data will be preserved intact.

The Android tv boxes currently on the market are mainly in these situations.

  1. Android box that supports OTA online upgrades.
    For example:
    X88 pro 20 Android Box with RK3566 Chipset, Android 11, 2.4G/5G, 1000M, 8K decoding with BT remote.
    X96 X4 TV box with Amlogic S905X4 chipset, Android 11, 2.4G/5G, 100M/1000M, 8K decoding.
    T95 Plus Android box: RK3566 chipset, Android 11, 2.4G/5G, 1000M, 8K decoding.
  2. Android boxes that do not support OTA need to be downloaded offline and upgraded manually.
    For example:
    M96 Color RockChip 3318 Android TV Box with Android 11.0, BT, 2.4G/5G, 4K decoding.
  3. Although Android box supports OTA, the CHANNEL of OTA is closed. The customer needs to send us the machine SN on the box, and then ask the manufacturer to open OTA for him, and then the automatic upgrade function can be provided.
    For example:
    H96 Max RK3566 TV box with Android 11.0, 2.4G/5G, 8K decoding, with BT remote.

Comparing these three types, Android TV Boxes with OTA functions are definitely more convenient, what do you think?
