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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
