Android 5.0 Lollipop Android TV UI on Allwinner A80 Octa-core big.LITTLE ARM Cortex-A15/7

Posted by – December 2, 2014

This is a preview release of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the powerful 8-core A80 TV box showing off some games running on the 64-core PowerVR G6230 GPU, the Android TV Remote Control app controlling the A80 TV box from any Android device, Google Cast casting YouTube video to the screen which means it becomes a Chromecast receiver and the Enhanced Google Voice Search using microphone, which are just some of the advantages of Google’s Android TV UI for Android 5.0 Lollipop. I especially think that the most important thing about Android TV is Google’s support, them pushing for more gamepad controlled games, more TV-centric entertainment apps for streaming more video-on-demand, and an overall improvement of Android for TV usage. Support for Android TV UI on Android 5.0 I think can accelerate the success of the Android Set-top-box market.

Current A80 TV box hardware specs:
8-core ARM A7/A15 CPU
64-core PowerVR Rogue GPU
2GB DDR3
16/32GB EMMC
SPDIF out, CVBS in, HDMI out, DC power in, LAN Ethernet in, SATA (optional)
WiFi Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac + BT 4
