Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hard to tell.
They look like FAKRA connectors so probably some cables for an antenna and/or camera.
Describing your new unit as "an android from China" makes it not much clearer.......

Are these cables that were in your car already? If so then my guess is FM-antenna and GPS antenna.

Welcome from Canada :grin:

What Pete said. "Android from China" is not very helpful.

"Android" is an operating system (software), not something that wires are attached to (hardware).

What do you mean? What is it supposed to do?

If you could provide an url to the product page from where you bought it would be helpful.

Hi Sneaky Pete,
I meant Android Head unit sorry. Yes, the cables were from the car. I suspect them also to be from Antenna and GPS. If the left 1 is for GPS, then i dont have to use the GPS provided with the head unit right?

Yes, you should be able to use the original GPS antenna located in the OHC.Btw, "Android Head unit" isn't very informative either. If you want detailed info from members that already installed a Chinese HU you should specify brand/model.
