Introducing the Formuler Z10 SE
The new Formuler Z10 SE is powered by the same SoC as these two big sisters Z10 Pro and Z10 Pro Max, i.e. a RealTek RTD1319 processor, associated here with 2 GB of DDR4 RAM memory and 4 GB of storage space.
Android 10 is responsible for animating the Z10 SE, it is a tablet version of the Google OS and we will be able to install Android applications from the Play Store or from an alternative store.
The interface is still the same, visually inspired by some older versions of Android TV
As usual, Formuler promises many updates to its system and its box
The RealTek RTD1319 chip supports the recent AV1 codec which allows better compression rates, just like the Amlogic S905X4 chip, in addition to the usual VP9, H.264 and H.265, up to a maximum definition in 4K at 60 frames per second.
In order to extend the dynamic range of the image on compatible content, HDR10, HLG and HDR10+ video formats are included.
To finish on the video part, a word on the SVOD aspect of the device. This one has neither Netflix certification nor Microsoft Play ready DRM, however Formuler has a good idea (as on other recent devices) to include Google Widevine Level 1 DRM, which will allow you to enjoy certain SVOD apps. up to 4K.
The graphics part is provided by a Mali G31 MP2 GPU, the same one that is integrated into the Amlogic S905X2, X3, X4 and S905W2 processors.
Regarding the connectivity of the device, nothing is indicated at the Bluetooth level, which tends to make me think that there will simply not be any, just like on the Z+ Neo that it is supposed to replace. The connection to the network will be done, using a 2.4 GHz wireless Wi-Fi connection or a 100M wired connection.
The connectivity of this Android TV box is rather limited. We only find a socket for the 12V/1A power supply, a 100M Ethernet port, an HDMI 2.0 port and a USB 3.0 port.
The MyTV Online 2 home application is of course automatically integrated into the device and will allow you to read your IPTV playlists.
Finally, we do not have with this device, the same remote controls as on the Z10 Pro and Z10 Pro MAX, but a slightly less qualitative remote control, which nevertheless remains quite complete in terms of the keys and which will allow you to control your sound without problems. Device and MOL2, despite the lack of voice control.
