Android Things 1080p video decoding

I'd like to do fast video decoding on Android Things, but the only boards available with Android Things support are the i.MX6UL and the i.MX7D, neither of which seem to have onboard hardware codecs for 1080p h.264 video. Running vanilla Android (not Things) is not an option for us.

  • Does the i.MX7D actually implement hardware codecs (It's not clear to me that they don't looking at the specs)?
  • Might the i.MX6QP be on the roadmap for Android Things support? 
  • What Android Things compatible board might perform best for video decoding, the i.MX7D or i.MX6UL?
