Google is releasing a new developer focused streaming media device called ADT-3 for developers to built and test out Android TV app implementations on Android 10. With the release of Android API level 29, Google is adding more performance and security updates with Android 10 to Android TV.
The device is powered by a quad-core A53, 2GB of DDR3 memory and supports a 4Kp60 HDR HDMI 2.1 output. The device is designed to provide a way for developers to test on physical and up to date hardware.
With the new API level, Google is enabling faster updates through Project Treble and more secure storage with encrypted user data. TLS 1.3 has been made default along with strengthening of other security-critical areas of the platform.
The ADT-3 will be made available to developers in the coming months for purchase online through an OEM partner.
