Finnish operator DNA has announced a new version of its TV hub that it says offers double the power of its predecessor.
The DNA Hubi combines behind a single user interface running on Android TV 10. The device also includes the latest operating system and voice search for Android. It will replace the unit first introduced in 2017. The amount of random-access memory has been increased from two to three gigabytes, with twice as much internal memory fitting into the smaller casing. Without external plug-ins, the device can now store up to 16 gigabytes of programmes and applications.
“Technical features are essential in product development, but the usability and functionality of the device at home are what’s most important. Extra power in the processor adds both smoothness and reliability, and internal memory allows for better operation without external hard drives”, says Ville Partanen, Director of Product Development at DNA.
The service also includes a recording option that makes it possible to record programmes from free channels and certain pay-TV channels.
The Android voice search is part of a completely redesigned Bluetooth remote.
