The MECOOL KM2 Plus is scheduled to be officially released on July 20th, 2022.
The original MECOOL KM2 was one of their most popular devices ever released and I’m excited to see their updated model!
MECOOL was kind to send me this new model for early review and I’ve already created a First Impressions Video that is exclusively available to TROYPOINT Patrons and Founding Members.
MECOOL KM2 Plus – What We Know So Far
The biggest differences that I see when comparing the new KM2 Plus to their original model is the following.
MECOOL KM2 Plus comes with 16GB internal storage whereas original came with 8GB
AV1 codec now included
KM2 Plus is running Android TV 11 whereas original was 10
There aren’t a lot of feature upgrades but MECOOL is addressing a big one that gets a lot of criticism which is additional internal storage.
The new KM2 Plus comes with 16GB of internal storage with 13GB left once all system apps and OS have been accounted for. This should be enough storage for most people to house their favorite applications.
Another big addition is the inclusion of the AV1 Codec. Soon, this will be the standard streaming format for most services and applications so this will help “future-proof” this streaming device.
The new device comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and the original was equipped with 4.2. Not a big one in my book but if you’re someone who connects peripheral devices this way, it might be to you.
One main reason their original device was so popular was because it was Netflix certified. This means that you can stream with Netflix in full HD on the device. This one touts the same capability and supports other popular services such as Amazon Prime Video.
Lastly, the new system is running Android TV 11. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know my thoughts on these incremental Android updates. To me, not too important because rarely we see new Android TV features that would prompt a new purchase. Android updates make a bigger difference when we’re talking about phones and tablets.
