Pre-order is now available for the MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a new Android TV/Google TV device from this company and it’s right in time for the holidays!
I will provide a First Impressions Video for TROYPOINT Patrons and Founding Members as soon as the new streaming device becomes available. After that, I will follow-up with an in-depth review right here on this page. Be sure to bookmark this article and check back frequently for the review.
This new box comes at the perfect time now that Amazon is hinting at the possibility of ditching Android and launch their own operating system on Fire TV systems. If that happens, many will flock to Android TV/Google TV solutions such as this. This migration has already started due to Amazon clamping down on various modifications such as the use of 3rd party launchers.
As of November 16th, 2023 the official MECOOL website indicates shipping for this new streaming device will take place in two weeks.
Here’s what we know so far about the new MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe.

MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe Initial Thoughts
I really like what I’m seeing with this new Android TV Box.
The price appears to be a bit on the high side but when you compare this device to the Amazon Fire TV Cube or NVIDIA Shield, it’s probably about right.
At first glance, I don’t see anything that I would change.
The biggest complaint regarding current Fire TV devices and Android TV/Google TV boxes is lack of internal storage.
Some may argue that the 32GB of internal storage isn’t enough but I would disagree. The internal storage should be used for applications and app data and I highly doubt that most people would exceed that. Keep in mind that external storage can always be added through the USB ports or Micro SD slot.
This photo describes the details of the new MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe.
Android TV 11
From looking at the picture below, it appears that this device will have the Google TV interface on top of Android TV 11 operating system.
4K HDR Ultra HD
As with most streaming boxes, the KM2 PLUS Deluxe will support 4K HDR.
Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos
Unlike the previous KM2, the PLUS Deluxe will support both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
WiFi 6 & Gigabit LAN Support on MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe
WiFi 6 & Gigabit LAN port included for fast download speeds. I will test download speeds in my review that will be available soon after the MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe is released.
Google Assistant is included due to the fact that this is certified Android TV. Take a look at that remote control!
Chromecast will also work on this device which is important to those who like to cast videos/photos from their phones, tablets, PCs, etc.
The MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe is Game Ready
Connect a Bluetooth controller and turn this Android TV Box into a gaming machine!
As with all MECOOL systems, setup is always easy and my First Impressions Video for TROYPOINT Patrons and Founding Members mentioned above will cove all of this.
Will MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe Be Filled With Malware?
We see this question a lot for streaming devices that aren’t as popular as Amazon, Google, and NVIDIA.
MECOOL has been manufacturing Android TV Boxes for a long time and not once have we seen accusations of them inserting malware or viruses into the firmware or preinstalled applications. This company is becoming a big player in the Android TV/Google TV landscape and many TROYPOINT fans are already using their past models.
Also, the fact that these are Android/Google certified is another reason to believe that MECOOL is on the up-and-up. The malware infested Android TV Boxes that we’ve seen are always running stock Android or a hacked version of Android TV. They aren’t using certified Android TV/Google TV operating system on the generic boxes that have been flagged.
I’m excited to get my hands on the new MECOOL KM2 PLUS Deluxe Android TV Box. This streaming device seems to cover the needs of most cord-cutters and adds features not often found on the more popular devices.
