MINIX NEO U22-XJ: Official Release Date - Monday 30th March 2020

#1
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we regrettably must postpone the release of our next-gen flagship 4K Ultra HD Media Hub – MINIX NEO U22-XJ by four weeks.

MINIX NEO U22-XJ will now be officially released on: Monday 30th March 2020.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this postponement may have caused you. We hope you will understand this is a unique situation, the Coronavirus continues to have a significant impact upon daily life in Mainland China and Hong Kong. The health, safety and wellbeing of MINIX’s staff take priority at this time.

---

Just another quick point because we’re getting lots of emails asking if NEO U22-XJ will keep being delayed even further than Monday 30th March.

The Coronavirus situation has now stabilised here and there are signs of improvements, so we are confident we can begin shipping NEO U22-XJ stock to our authorized distributors and resellers in late March and the official release date of Monday 30th March will not be delayed further.

Though, like some of you guys have mentioned, the Coronavirus is now spreading across Europe and this could potentially impact upon some of our authorized distributors and resellers (and life/business in general) in the region, depending on how the situation progresses in the next few weeks.

So, in mid-to-late March, I recommend contacting your local MINIX authorized partner to check when they expect to receive NEO U22-XJ stock.

Like always, we only recommend purchasing from a MINIX authorized partner and waiting until the official release date on Monday 30th March.

Hi "MINIX - John"
I'm so glad to see this news. I have two questions:

1 - What is the maximum HDD capacity that the U22 supports?
2 - Can Portable HDD be directly connected to U22? Or do I need a USB hub with separate power supply?

Thanks

Cześć, mam pytanie dotyczące częstotliwości zegara, czy MINIX NEO U22-XJ będzie miał taką samą częstotliwość zegara jak beelink gt king pro

Hi, I have a question about clock speed, will MINIX NEO U22-XJ have the same clock speed as beelink gt king pro

Will you use any of your innovative processor cooling heatsink and squeeze out all the juices from this equipment, I know you are famous for good solutions when it comes to cooling

I apologize for my grammar but the Google translator slightly distorts it

The Shield 2019 Pro doesn't support YouTube UHD 60fps vp9 HDR, the U22-XJ does so I would say you've made a wise choice in exercising a bit of patience (y)

Looks great. I have 2 questions. Can it support dual layer dolby vision and can it support HD audio like Dolby True-HD and Dolby Atmos?
Absolutely this!! If you guys buy a profile 7 dolby vision license, I and many others would gladly spend the extra cost for a device to finally rule them all!
