THE New X96S device is almost as tiny as a pack of chewing gum. X96 is a popular manufacturer of entry-level Android and Windows 10 thin clients, has just unveiled a new smart stick based on Android that plugs straight into a TV or monitor.
HDMI sticks are a bit like Marmite but they serve a very useful purpose. The X96s is one of the smallest Android computers you will find on the market and is powerful enough for most office tasks especially as it supports Miracast. That tiny form factor means that you won’t have a lot of room to maneuver, especially as it is barely bigger than a pack of chewing gum at 98 x 33 x 13mm.
Despite this, the X96S still packs in a quad-core CPU that runs Android 8.1, 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, a microSD card reader and a full-size USB port. Along with Bluetooth and 802.11ac, it also comes with a number of useful accessories like remote control, an IR receiver and an HDMI cable.
