Within settings the resolution can be set from a low 720p, up to 3840 x 2160p at 60 Frames Per a Second.
Of course, the TV will need to be compatible with any higher resolution with this option best left on Auto.
Kodi does not come installed but is easy to get from the Play Store, or from the main Kodi Download page.
To test it we installed Kodi from the main Download page.

The R99 has some impressive hardware with 4GB of RAM and the RK3399 CPU.
With those specifications it will have no problems playing 4K Ultra HD videos using Kodi or other sources.
The one downside is the price which is currently high compared to other units.
For those looking for a budget box there are better options such as the H96 Pro Plus or the T95Z Plus.
Overall the price will be the biggest factor since the unit works very well.
While the RK3399 Chip out performs any S905 / S912 box these slower units still work well enough and make good budget boxes.
Many will not have the need for a high end unit with low-to-mid range boxes working good for many users.
As always be sure to read review on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
