Cube H880FHDR Announced

Cube H880FHDR Announced


The Cube H880FHDR is basically the Cube H880FHD’s smaller brother, with screen size dropping from 4.3-inches to 3.6-inches (though screen resolution remains the same at 800x480). But don’t let the smaller size fool you - this little player still packs a wallop and is being advertised as, like it’s bigger version, still being able to decode 1280p video which means it’s another Sochip SC9800 player. Supported file formats are AVI, MP4, MPG, MKV, PSP, DAT, VOB, WMV, ASD, PMP, RM, RMVB, MOV, M2B, QT, M2A, H.264 (BP/MP/HP) and the list goes on. It will come with a maximum storage capacity of 32GB, has support for OTG, and is boasted as having around 5 hours battery life. As a tentative guess, this player might come bundled with the Cube F1 earphones, if that is a deal maker for anybody.

This is a powerful and portable player, and the small screen size should lengthen the already impressive battery life of Sochip players. Cube says 6 hours playback time - we ask: at what resolution?

Bmorn BM-888F10 w/ 1280p

Bmorn BM-888F10 w/ 1280p


Bmorn’s BM-888F10 seems to be an updated revision of the original 7-inch BM-888, supposedly bringing in more user-friendly tweaks and an increased efficiency in video playback. So they say. This 7-inch player should have the same 800x480 screen resolution and as 1280p is plastered all over there promotional pictures, it is fairly safe to assume that this player is using the Sochip Sc9800 or some renamed variant as that chip is the only one on the mass market today that can play files of up to 1920x1280 resolution. Considering it’s the Sochip, video playback and battery efficiency will be excellent, with support for all the major video file formats including MKV, AVI, MPG, MP4, VOB etc. Another benefit will be the 1080p WMV decoding that is certainly impressive of the chip. The player looks sleek and smooth, with a nice brushed aluminum frame that definitely leans toward the more aesthetically inclined.

Benss BX-57 F16 PMP Supports PDF Files


The Benss BX-57 F16 player pictured above is said to have PDF support (as an upgrade to the original Benss BX-57 player), which might be a first for Chinese portable media players and if not a first, then at least an extreme rarity. The player has a 4.3-inch screen, is ‘ultra-thin’ at just 7.89mm thickness and will start out in 8GB flavour. The player is capable of decoding videos up to 768p, so the standard HD 720p will be supported, including video file formats MKV, AVI, WMV, VOB, ASF, etc. It is unknown if the F16 in the model number alludes to the Boxchip F16 chip which is a Sochip in disguise, but up until now no Sochip player (at least that I know of) can view PDF files so that theory becomes less likely when given more thought. Then again, it can be said that there is little point in trying to extract sense from model numbers for a lot of the PMPs that come out of China.

The player certainly does look interesting with PDF support, which is what makes it stand out from the heaving and throbbing throng of 4.3-inch 720p capable PMPs. On a final note, it seems that this new revision of the BX-57 player is, unfortunately, still looking as ugly as ever with those buttons on the front surface.

RAmos T17HD Listed

RAmos T17HD Listed


RAmos have been busy bees recently, what with their recent firmware updates (one improving flash support), their Q28Cam release and more on the horizon, and now the apparent listing of the T17HD 4.3-inch player. Though I would swear I’ve seen this player floating around the net before (the similar model T17FHD received a glowing review here), it seems that RAmos have only recently officialy listed their T17HD player - the 8GB version. Since a few reviews of the player have cropped up around the net, some dating as far back as April, this announcement seems a little surprising. Moving forward regardless, the T17HD is a 4.-3inch player capable of playing videos at up to 1080p resolution so it is probably using the new Amlogic processor which it has recently begun to adopt in full force, abandoning the Rockchips which characterise older RAmos players. It’s another HD player in that size range, one of many on the market. It supports the usual array of file formats including MKV, AVI, RMVB, VOB etc and features multi audio tracks and multi subtitle tracks which can be useful. It will start in the 8GB flavour.

Another Fashionable MP3 Player From ICOO

ICOO has unveiled another fashionable yet simple MP3 player ‘IX35′ for the Chinese market. Featuring a bright silver metallic body, the player integrates a five-way navigation button, a microSD card slot, an FM radio and a built-in rechargeable battery that can last up to 40 hours of music playback. Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing and availability yet.


itoos M6HDT 4.3-Inch Player Also Supports PDF


When the Benss BX-57 F16 player was revealed to have PDF support, I reported, in an astounding lack of foresight, that PDF support was extremely rare on PMPs. Well, as life usually makes a fool out of he who blurts, I’m being humbled by the revelation that the itoos M6HDT player also supports PDF files. The irony is both appropriate and humiliating.

The M6HDT is a 4.3-inch player which uses, I suspect, the Sochip SC9800 chip as betrayed by the 1280p capability that is being advertised. (This is unlike the aforementioned Benss BX-57 F16 player which uses (again I suspect) the Boxchip F16 chip which is the Sochip SC8600 - an earlier iteration.) That means that video playback and battery efficiency are bound to be excellent on this player, just like other Sochip SC9800 players. MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, ASF, MP4 and more make up the usual array of video file format support we’ve come to expect from PMP players today. The player is encased in an all-metal die-cast housing which, I must say, looks pretty swell.

All in all this will be a powerful player thanks to its powerful chip. Oh, and now with PDF support! Look for this to become a trend.
