Hi, I was in search for a cheap arm board that could run cool 24/7, need very low amperes, be able to run a recent android (10+), have plenty of ram (4GB) , of emmc (64GB+), decent GPU, a case, an external antenna, a power supply, usb3 and toslink out and be less than 50$ and be able to run some Linux (at least under termux)
Unfortunately, no such thing exists in khadas catalog in 2020, and I had to purchase it from another brand, on Amazon.
And for 40eur, I even had an ir remote as a bonus.
The product is called sunnzo s9 max, and it ticked all my cases, an more.
I think the secret is its rockchip soc (rk 3318).
I use many raspberry pi boards and many similar ones as well, at office and also at home.
In fact, I very rarely use the 40pin extension pins, but almost always at least one USB port.
Why is such device missing in Khadas product line today ?
You could create this new and exclusive market segment:
50$ price tag, primarily aimed at linux hackers (supported by fenix, Linux distro friendly, don’t care much for android source, as they never convince XDA class developers to build custom up to date android ROMs during many years after the product’s start of sales) but can be used as media center right out of the box for the lazy ones.
Please comment and share your opinion on my proposal!
