Remix OS Beta – How to Install Directly

We talked about Remix OS previously and the recent beta sees a number of improvements. One of the big change was the ability to dual boot it alongside a Windows installation.

Built on the Android-x86 project, Remix OS for PC is compatible to most of the laptop & desktop that are running on Windows (or even Macs).

If your PC does not meet the requirement, you are able to experience Remix OS by purchasing the Jide Remix Mini at just US$70. Running on 64bit Allwinner Quad Core processor with 2GB ram, it might not be able to rival against chipset competitor such as Qualcomm & Mediatek, However, it does the job for video streaming/gaming smoothly.
