Meet CS668, interesting Amlogic S905X Mini PC
Every once in a while we get to see a device that tries to be as different as possible and today we have one that really is attempting to break a record.
CS668 appeared for presale a while ago and now it seems to be available.
CS668 Mini PC is powered by the Amlogic S905X SoC, which gives the small device enough power for things like HDR and 4K VP9 hardware decoding.
It comes with a standard IR remote, USB cables, power adapter and user manual, but here the similarities between our regular Mini PC's and the CS668 end.
CS668 comes with a 5000 mAh battery which allows it to run without being connected to a power source and also to power other devices (like a phone).
But we've seen other Mini PC's with built-in powerbank also. But here's the twist: as if the two functions weren't enough the manufacturer behind CS668 decided to add a third: so the device can also be used as a bluetooth speaker.
As a blueetoth speaker it comes with two 10 watt stereo speakers and a microphone, so it can be paired with a smartphone or other gadget and used as such. It can also play music from an SD card and has dedicated buttons for the music playing function.
CS668 comes in two flavors, red and black.

CS668 Mini PC
The device is certainly unique on the market, and has the advantage of being useful even after you retire it's "mini PC" function (which, let's face it, at just 1GB of RAM could be quite soon).
If hardware is good enough CS668 could make an interesting gift for a gadget-addicted person,
