Remix Mini Now Available in Pakistan: World’s First True Android PC @ Rs 7,999

People tend to identify PC and mobile operating systems as different animals because they run on different devices. While most of the operating systems in the market embrace this distinction, bridging this divide is the next evolutionary phase of what an OS should be.

This mindset brought three ex-Google engineers who have a total of 26 years combined work experience at Google together to form Jide Technology. These three engineers, Jeremy Chau, David Ko and Ben Luk, then worked together to give birth to Remix OS and Remix Mini, the world’s first true Android PC.

Remix Mini is a unique device which can transform any television screen or a monitor into a desktop PC, Smart TV or a Gaming Station through its simple and intuitive plug and play setup.

The market has seen a lot of devices over the last couple of years to do something similar but most of them have been media-centric devices for running Netflix, YouTube and other video applications.  

The Remix Mini can do all of that and in addition it runs a customized Android-based operating system Remix OS, which is designed to give you a desktop computing experience and access to more than 2.6 million free or low-cost Android apps, merging mobile and desktop personal computing.

What Does Remix Mini Come with?

Unpacking the box, you will be greeted with a compact and a minimalistic pebble shaped remix device. Along with that, you will get an adapter for the device and a HDMI cable to plug it in the TV screens or monitors.

Beneath the pebble-shaped device, there is a 1.2GHz quad-core Allwinner processor, 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. 

It is interesting to note that there are no switches or push buttons on the device. To power on the device, users can simply tap twice on top of the device. Tapping once will put the device into sleep mode.

How Does It Actually Work?

For all the tech savvy people, the functionality and understanding of the device is extremely simple. It’s a two-step process:

  1. Connect the charger to the device.
  2. Connect the HDMI to the TV screen or monitor.

Upon completion of these two steps, you can then start using the world’s first true android PC. Given the versatility of the Remix Mini, there are various use cases as discussed below.

  • Use as a PC

The operating system of the Remix Mini is designed in such a way that it provides users a full experience of a PC. Similar to Windows, it has a desktop, status bar and a taskbar. Moreover, you can also perform Windows-like actions such as copying documents, downloading content and much more.

  • Use as a Smart TV

Remix Mini works flawlessly with television screens, transforming any standard TV into a Smart TV. All you need to do is download the content you want to watch and use the in-built video player. The device is equipped with H.265 4K hardware decoding video support and runs videos on a 1920 x 1080 resolution to give its users a complete home theatre experience. Remix Mini also has a 1080p HDMI output, which is an added bonus.

The Remix Mini does not come with a remote but given that it runs on Android, you can download applications to convert your smartphone as a remote controller. The device has Bluetooth connectivity which enables you to do so.

  • Use as a Gaming Device

From the total number of applications on Google Play Store, more than 40 percent are games. Users can download all their favorite games and enjoy a fun experience. The Remix Mini has USB slots in which wireless mouse, keyboard and controllers can be plugged in. Users can enhance their gaming experience through Remix Mini.

All of these various functionalities combined make Remix Mini a strong candidate for a complete multimedia device.

Remix OS

While the device runs a custom operating system called Remix OS, it is very easy to operate for people who have used other desktop PCs. The OS is based on Android 5.1, which brings a lot more to the table in comparison with traditional desktop use.

The operating system is equipped with an advanced file manager, taskbar, status bar and a desktop where Android applications are placed. As a desktop, you can perform various features like taking screenshots, copying and moving documents and more.

The Remix OS also has an app launcher, from where all the downloaded applications are placed. You can move them to desktop or place them in the taskbar, like you would in a Windows platform. The search bar can also be sorted, one of which is so the users are able to utilize their most used application. Most of the applications open in a resizable and repositionable window, which enables users to do desktop-like multitasking.

All the user’s pending notifications can be viewed in the notification panel, which also has various settings at the bottom of it. The additional settings include features like automatically hide task bar and enabling do not disturb mode etc.

Using Remix OS, users can switch between opened applications and enhance the Android multitasking experience. With the variety of applications, users can utilize Remix Mini for different purposes such as using it as a home theatre or a stand-by desktop replacement.

To summarize, there are many reasons why you should have the Remix Mini. It is affordable, portable, power efficient and comes with tons of features.  Moreover, with its access to millions of games and apps on Google Play Store, the Remix Mini offers the best bang for the buck!

  • Remix Mini works flawlessly with television screens, transforming any standard TV into a Smart TV.

    I have a normal CRT TV would this thing turn that into a Smart TV? Please someone assist…

      • Muhammad Sharif bhai, kaunse CRT main HDMI port aati thi bhai? Agar HDMI ho tu phir tu chromecast, amazonstick aur bhi buhat sare options hain.

        In short har TV ko yeh convert nahi kar sakta in smart TV unless it has HDMI right?

        • KMQ Bhai, its possible to convert a CRT to Smart TV. It can be done not only by one way but you can do it with every possible option your CRT TV has.

          Option-1: (HDMI to CATV)
          You will need an HDMI to CATV converter. To serve this purpose you will need a device called HDMI to RF modulator which takes the HDMI input and give the RF (CATV) output. All the CRT TVs have a CATV (Cable TV) input port which can be used for this purpose, even Black and White old TVs has this port so if you want your Black and White TV to become a Smart TV, its done. You can easily enjoy your CRT as a Smart TV.

          Option-2: (HDMI to RCA)
          You will need an HDMI to RCA (AV) converter. Every CRT TV has an auxiliary AV option to connect it to your VCR or Gaming console. You can easily enjoy your CRT as a Smart TV.

          Option-3: (HDMI to S/PDIF)
          You will need an HDMI to SPDIF converter. SPDIF is (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) and most of the latest CRT TVs has this port at the back which we won’t even realize. You can easily enjoy your CRT as a Smart TV.

          Option-4: (HDMI to VGA)
          You will need an HDMI to VGA converter. Many CRT TVs has VGA port as well, I have an old LG TV which has VGA option as well. You can easily enjoy your CRT as a Smart TV.

          Option-5: (HDMI to DVI)
          You will need an HDMI to DVI converter. Even many local TVs has this option and many old SVGA and VGA CRT monitors including ViewSonic has this option. Finally, you can easily enjoy your CRT as a Smart TV.

          Many of above converters are easily available in Pakistan. But if you can’t find one in local markets or online, you can always order via Amazon and AliBaba log, inkay paas sab kuch mil jata hai asaani se :)

          • Thats great, thank you for detailed solution Hasnu bhai. Baki rahi baat inki availability ki tu I guess yeh Alibaba walon ne abhi tak Regal Chowk (Saddar) ka chakar nahi lagaya. Wahan aise sare jugar rehri (cart) par milte hain :-)

      • Ji bhai woh tu upar article main bhi keh raha hai ke CRT main use hoaskta hai, but uske liye CRT main HDMI port honi chahiye. Khair kafi logon ne different tareeke batae hain uske liye bhi jo artilce main nahi they.

  • not compelling enough to dump my raspberry pi 3, will look into the CPU speed comparation before doing that.

  • I HAVE USED IT ON A PROJECTOR SCREEN AND HAVE ENJOYED USING IT PERSONALLY AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT
    RATHER THAN BUYING A CHROME CASTING DEVICE THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN PLUG INTO YOUR LCD AND LED

  • though i can not afford a gaming console for my kids i have bought them Remix Mini and voila they are downloading games from playstore and enjoying it, Youtube application as well.

  • I have used it, and its fun showing your parents google maps actually on it rather than explaining them on small phone screens

  • A quick search shows that Google Play is no longer supported on Remix OS, so not sure if it is such a good investment.

  • No big deal of Google play store isn’t working use its market(Remix central) to enable Google play services that’s how you can run and install applications

  • Well marshmallow is the modded REMIX OS running on my device with Google play store working on it. I’m using it actually for OFFICE applications and steam VODs

  • The content available on PP is assumed the editorial content endorsement by ProPakistani. If this is so alright. Otherwise please mention as this is the editorial space, and not commercially sold.

  • Typical high priced crap, can get better device from aliexpress and way cheaper like resberry pi 3 (3700rs) and install android or retropie
