The past six months have seen streaming services gain huge momentum and certain streaming devices have tried to add games to their catalogue. However, Amkette EvoFox GameBox is a single function device that aims to make gaming social on your big screen.
Amkette EvoFox GameBox: specifications and features
The Amkette EvoFox GameBox looks like any other streaming device, and is a rectangular box with curved edges acting as the connection to your television.

There is 4GB of RAM and 32GB eMMC storage that can be further expanded using a microSD card slot. It runs Android TV OS 9 with the ability to download apps from Google Play Store.
