Oranth is a company that makes smart TV equipment, some of which are sold under the brand-names of other OEMs. It has announced that a new 4K series of the same will run on SoCs supplied by HiSilicon, a division of Huawei also responsible for more premium Kirin smartphone chipsets.

Oranth describes itself as a "leader" in the manufacture and supply of TV boxes, some of which run Android and are also often Kodi-compatible. These products incorporate processors made by typical streaming-device OEMs such as Amlogic. However, the ODM has announced that some of its upcoming models will run on HiSilicon chipsets instead.

The company has stated that it has chosen to incorporate these SoCs for "stable quality and perfect performance" in the devices now based on them. These boxes, which are of Oranth's Hi3798M series, also support playback of up to 4K in resolution.

They will also have LPDDR4 RAM (of between 1 and 4GB in size) as well as eMMC storage chips of 8 to 64GB in capacity. Therefore, if you see a TV box with these specs and a HiSilicon chipset in the future by any brand, you may now know where it originally came from.
