A set of AAA batteries is missing here? :)
Let's take a look at the main unit. As you see below, the plastic black case has an IR receiver and a power LED on the front, along with the MINX logo engraved on the top. It's quite compact in size at 21x127x127mm (HxWxD).
On the lest side there is a power switch, three USB 2.0 ports, a microSDHC card slot, the OTG port (cable is included) and the Kensington lock.
Connectivity ports are found in the opposite side: microphone and headphone jacks, HDMI 2.0 up to 4K @ 60Hz with support for HDMI-CEC protocol, SPDIF sound output, Gigabit LAN and the power jack.
An antenna jack for wireless connectivity (802.11ac with 2 X 2 MIMO Dual-Band Wi-Fi and BT 4.1) is available at the player's left side.
The player's remote control is very small but features all the basics: a power on/off button, a central 4-way pad with a center OK button, volume controls, and " back," "home," "options" and "settings" buttons. It looks a bit different that the controls found in other Android players but you'll easily familiarize yourself with it after a while.
Minix also offers a remote controller app for Android mobile phones. Alternatively, you can always connect the player to an air mouse or a BT keyboard/mouse set.
