Like its predecessor, the Evo TV 3 supports 4K video streaming. It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is outdated, but will still offer compatibility to plethora of Android apps and games. It will work like any other Android device and can be connected to your HDTV using the HDMI port. Additionally, the Evo TV 3 supports DLNA, Airplay and Miracast. So, you can also stream content directly from your mobile device.

There is Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity, Ethernet port, and Bluetooth 4.1 in the device as well.
Furthermore, The Evo TV 3 supports H.265 and VP9 codecs, so you can play the media files encoded using these codecs.
Amkette has also added A/V output in the device, so the device can be used with the older television sets, which don’t have HDMI ports.
The Evo TV 3 comes with a small remote for easier access to the content. The remote houses a 6-Axis Gyroscope, which will come handy during gameplay on the media streamer.
“We are delighted to be launching this product for all the TV and gaming lovers out there. Evo Tv 3 sets the benchmark with its cutting edge technology and Ultra HD 4K picture with HDR and 7.1 channel surround sound,” said Rajiv Bapna, Director, Amkette.
