Nearly two years ago, Walmart began selling its first 4K Android TV streaming device, the Onn 4K Streaming Box. While it was as generic of a streamer as you could get, it offered unmatched value with a retail price under $30. The Onn 4K box and matching Onn 1080p Stick quietly began to disappear from both Walmart’s website and retail shelves, suggesting the models were being discontinued. Now, the first indication of a successor to the Onn 4K Streaming Box has made an appearance.
A new Onn 4K streamer has passed through FCC approval, as spotted by @AndroidTV_Rumor. The listing was submitted by a company out of China called “Luxshare Precision Industry Co., Ltd.” but the label of the device, shown above, clearly states it to be an “onn. 4K Streaming Box” with VSN model number 110125667. @AndroidTV_Rumor expects the new device to be powered by an Amlogic S905Y4, which is nearly identical to the S905Y2 in the previous model apart from the addition of AV1 video decoding.
It’s probably safe to assume this new Onn streamer will be as generic as the previous one. The FCC listing reveals that the “G” at the start of the device’s serial number is “for onn. 4K” which suggests the same hardware might be available under other brands, just like the first Onn 4K Streaming box. That’s not to say it’ll be a bad device. Just don’t expect much more than the minimum feature set at a compellingly low price.
