New Walmart Onn 4K Android/Google TV Streamer makes its first appearance

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.

    Not sure about this, is says roughly 40x40mm
    That’s about 1.55 inches
    Current streaming “box” is about 2.5″ x 2.5″

    Had the 4k box. Casting didn’t always work well, and the remote would lose connectivity often (even though it still changed volume and input on the TV).

    I’ve since got the CCwGTV, while using the Onn remote, and everything’s just fine.

      Same. I’ve purchased a bunch of the Onn sticks just for the remotes to use on my CCwGTV’s. I personally think the remotes blow away the lousy CC remotes.

        It really is crazy how much better the “spec” remotes are than that POS that comes with Google’s first party hardware!

      What is a CCwGTV?

      I recently upgraded to the Chromecast with Google TV 4K edition and it’s definitely a major upgrade from the Chromecast with Google TV the 1080p version. I have a 4K TV from 2018 that has Chromecast built-in but it was Soo slow but the picture looked good. The TV finally got to the point where it wasn’t casting apps that well and the apps that were on the TV were super slow. I got a Chromecast with Google TV but I immediately noticed the picture didn’t look that good & that’s when I realized I had the 1080p CCwGTV. I took it back and got the CCwGTV the 4K edition & WOW the picture is gorgeous. The difference between 1080p & 4K with HDR is night and day noticable. Idk if it’s true or not but I feel like the 4K version is slightly faster (barely noticeable). I will say the Google TV experience is brilliant compared to the streaming box competitors. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a cheap but awesome 4K experience with the brilliance that is Google TV OS ✌️

      I did the same thing. I had an extra otg cable and mini keyboard and mouse hooked it up and now no remote disconnecting issue

    • Frank says:

    And I’m going to guess the reason for an identical device its a money thing.
    They are going to have to pay licensing to Google and not Android,
    SO, they took the old Android version off the market to clear things legally, and will now start it again with a different OS.
    WHOOPS! not true?? Google / Android the same !!
    The Android operating system was developed by Google (GOOGL​) for use in all of its touchscreen devices, tablets, and cell phones. This operating system was first developed by Android Inc., a software company located in Silicon Valley before it was acquired by Google in 2005.

    • Tech3475 says:

      The hardware isn’t identical, according to the article, it’s SoC is a revision which adds AV1 support (which Google reportedly may make mandatory).

      My guess would be either the old SoC was being phased out, they’ve made it cheaper to make and/or they wanted AV1 support.

      Also, Google have been messing around with the branding, switching between Android TV and Google TV.

      If you are talking about the OON. The picture was good but,if you wanted to listen to your earbud’s it made them sound like crap.

    I absolutely love the original onn Android version and purchase several to add to every tv I have in the house. I am able to add storage and download apps that makes my Roku tv a monster of entertainment. Take it for what it is and stop complaining. Way to go Walmart. Thanks.

    “DV6105Z” – can’t read the Chinese graphic, but if that is the model number, then to me that signifies the 4K model will now be made by a different OEM, by SDMC. SDMC uses (DV) in the prefix of their model designations. Previously the 4K-model was made by Askey and only the HD-stick was made by SDMC.

  8. Jean says:

    To make this a better box the ram and the storage should be increased. I for one would pay extra for these improvements

  9. Chris says:

    I have both little boxes I’ve had them since they created them and I’ve been programming them with other programs to receive programming of movies and TV for free and I’ve learned how to download apps onto these boxes and the total amount of programming you get on these little boxes after you download these apps over a million channels from children’s shows and movies to adult shows and movies including free pay-per-view events and all the other apps you have to pay for and all includes local channels and foreign channels and I profited very well with learning how to put in these apps and people are happy to receive these for one price knowing that the price that they are paying is only going to be one time because cable TV and satellite TV are way over the cost when you only receive 60 channels with them and you have to pay for pay-per-view and all the other channels and it seems like all these companies like Disney HBO Showtime Cinemax pay-per-view they’re on these companies that charge everyone for channels they can receive for free with these Android boxes so I’m very happy that I learned how to program these a lot of people buy them but they don’t understand that there’s a lot they can get out just that little box if they knew how to program it and there’s tools in the menu that you can use to program these little boxes and get millions of channels and the pictures are fine the remote if you have a problem all that has to be done is to factory reset your box and start the program of programming the box with the remote all over again and then put all the programming in that you need to watch all the shows you want

    Anyone have an idea when we might see these in Walmart? What month?

  11. Jason T says:

    I snatched up 3 of the original onn model for $9.99 each at Boscovs near my home. They must have gotten some on liquidation.

  12. JSM says:

    I’ve owned 2 of the original Onn versions for a little over 2 years now, having replaced previous TiVo 4k stream units and these work great. If only the new ones had more memory to better handle internet throttling these would be fantastic!

  13. Jonathan says:

    Can I connect this to use my Alexa Studio speaker for audio? If so how would I do this? Wigh my current fire tv 4k max I would just add the speaker in the Alex app and setup a home theater setup.
