IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have received insider information from our HK source that the MINIX Neo X8-H Plus is due to be discontinued effective this week. MINIX is not planning to manufacture any more of these devices. This information has yet to be announced and yet to be ‘official’ – but they are quite certain that this is the case. The leak has come from the MINIX factory directly. In saying that, the factory has been unable to supply us with any more AU stock as they do not have any left in stock to cater for our order. We have also tried to order US or EU models instead, but the MINIX factory has advised that they have stopped production for all variants. If you see this product still being sold in other stores, it would indicate old stock (as usually stockists order large quantity). If this information changes or if we hear any new information, we will update this post to advise you. Whilst it may be possible to import the MINIX Neo X8-H Plus from other sources, we refuse to import any MINIX devices which are not coming from the MINIX factory directly. This is in order to ensure that the product is genuine, factory sealed, AU variant & comply with Australian standards.
If you are wanting a MINIX product, I suggest you choose either the MINIX Neo U1, or the MINIX Neo Z64 Android, or the MINIX Neo Z64 Windows variant.
For those who have ordered this product under the ‘1-2 week delay’ notice, we will ship you the latest MINIX Neo U1 Bundle instead, or the MINIX Neo Z64 Bundle (your preference). Alternatively, you can swap the order for any other model and the price will be adjusted. You may also opt for a refund 🙂
The MINIX Neo X8-H Plus is one of our premium range devices.
MINIX has a worldwide reputation and this model is currently sold in JB HiFi for $289 at the time of this listing. When you buy a MINIX branded device, you know you are buying quality.
DROIDWORLD is an authorized dealer/re-seller of MINIX products. Our MINIX Range arrive to the DROIDWORLD Warehouse factory sealed (AU Versions). This means they are the same Australian compliant versions that JB HiFi Stocks (not international version with adapter).
This device is intended for people who want optimum performance.
Premium aftermarket remote controllers are highly recommended to use with an Android TV Box, as they make using the device much more enjoyable, and a lot easier to use!
Click on the picture below to see all the premium controllers that we stock which you can purchase along with your device.
Wireless controllers include a mini USB receiver which you plug into the device – this means you don’t need to point at the box like a traditional IR Remote control. You can control the device from up to 10 meters away pointing in any direction. Some of them also add extra functionality, such as an ‘Air Mouse’ (wave your hand to move the mouse cursor on the screen), Mini Keyboard (Makes searching easier, typing with ease), Mini TouchPad (like a laptops touchpad), Voice commands & more. (Please see the individual listing to know what features it holds).

X-Media Center – Based on the Award Winning KODI/XBMC Software
All DroidWorld Android TV Boxes enjoy the luxury of X-Media Center.
KODI/XBMC is an award winning, open-source Media Center. X-Media Center is a custom fork of KODI which is optimized for Android based devices. The KODI team currently do not have an Android Engineer, and therefore KODI has many playback issues with the majority of Android TV Box’s on the market.
You can expect smooth FULL HD 1080P playback & 4K playback on 4K compatible devices.
X-Media Center features hardware decoding support for many popular chipsets including RockChip & Amlogic based devices. Ofcourse it also has all the same functionality of the Standard KODI such as third party addon support.
Install third party Streaming Apps into X-Media Center / KODI
There are thousands of third party apps which are available to install into the Media Center.
This includes apps which provide free Live TV Channels (such as FilmON & USTVNow).
Channels which are available from third party addons include;
U.K, USA, Australian, Greek, Cyprus, Canadian, Turkish, ITALIAN, Arabic, Indian (Tamil, punjabi, hindi & more), Vietnamese, Pakistani, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Brazilian, Russian, Cambodian/Khmer, German, Danish, Macedonian, Serbian, Croatian, Filipino, Malaysia, Thai, Asian Dramas + many more!
There are also apps available which provide the ability to stream movies, tv series & sports.
Users can use third party addon installers which provide a “one-click” fully loaded installation of the Best KODI third party addons.
Here is an example of the DroidWorld Streaming Box using the SuperMax Wizard for KODI which does just that:
The SuperMax Wizard for KODI provides MONTHLY OTA updates for KODI addons & features.
