ZTE9 has released FunBox, which is claimed to be the world’s fastest home entertainment console. The console is expected to give consumers and families a unique high-performance all-in-one gaming, video-chatting and online video experience.
FunBox is the fruit of the engineering capabilities of ZTE and the video game development expertise of The9. ZTE9 is a joint venture between ZTE, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mobile devices, and The9, one of China’s foremost video game companies. Online sales for FunBox will start on JD.com next month, and consumers can choose between 12 different colors.
The console is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 processor, based on the new A15 architecture, and the superior graphics performance is delivered by a 72-core GeForce graphics processor with 2GB DDR3L memory and 8GB of Flash memory.
“FunBox has opened up new possibilities in the home entertainment space,” said Adam Zeng, Chairman of ZTE9. “FunBox will be supported by a comprehensive ecosystem that encompasses hardware, content and channels, as we are committed to bringing a high-quality home entertainment experience to consumers.”
Leveraging ZTE’s world-leading telecommunications technology, FunBox is the first home entertainment console to support video-chatting, allowing users to conduct video calls on their smart televisions for the first time.
With a dual-antenna, dual-frequency Wi-fi design, and a Bluetooth controller, FunBox offers superior connectivity and robust network performance. In the future, users will be able to buy personalised versions of the FunBox with customised casings.
