Rikomagic MK902 Quad Core Android TV Box Features a 5MP Camera

Orange Pi Development Boards

Rikomagic is mostly known for its Android HDMI TV dongles such as the MK802 series, but a new Android media player has recently been listed on its website. MK902 features a quad core Cortex A9 RK3188 processor, 2GB RAM, 8 to 16 GB flash depending on configuration, as well as a 5MP camera for video conferencing.

Rikomagic_MK902MK902 specifications:

  • SoC – Rockchip RK3188 Quad Core cortex A9 SoC @ 1.6 GHz with Mali 400-MP4 GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • Storage – 8GB to 16GB NAND flash, and a micro SD card slot (Up to 32GB)
  • Connectivity – WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with external antenna, Bluetooth 4.0, and 10/100M Ethernet
  • Video Output – HDMI and AV output (composite).
  • Audio Output – HDMI, AV output and optical SPDIF
  • USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Camera – 5MP webcam with microphone
  • Power supply – 5V / 2.5A

The device will come with an HDMI cable, an AV cable (composite + stereo audio), a power adapter, and a user’s manual. MK902 is said to run Android 4.2, and supports Miracast. The 5MP camera is mostly a marketing “trick”, which does not mean the claim is untrue, but even if you can find a video conferencing service doing 1080p (1920×1080) it only requires about 2MP. Greater pixel counts are mostly useful for photography, unless I missed something.

There’s currently no information about price nor availability.

Minix announcement on their official FB page :

“A quick word regarding RockChip’s RK3188-T chipset:

There has been much talk on Forums in the last week about the RK3188-T chipset, which has been brought to our attention. So it’s important we clarify our position:

We can confirm MINIX is still using the RK3188 chipset in our Quad-Core devices – the NEO X7 and NEO X7mini. And we have absolutely no intentions to switch to the RK3188-T.

For those unaware, the RK3188-T is a cheaper alternative to the RK3188 – which other manufacturers have been discovered to be using recently. The RK3188-T runs at a slower CPU speed, so thus will have an affect on the performance of the device.

Our focus is on giving you guys, our users, the best experience possible from our MINIX devices. We are always seeking improvements, and a chipset such as the RK3188-T is a step in the wrong direction in our opinion, and something we would never consider using ….”

trackback

[…] Rikomagic MK902 is an Android mini PC powered by Rockchip RK3188 quad core processor, and there’s even a Linux version. The company has announced it has been working on an upgrade of the device named MK902 II, and powered by Rockchip RK3288. It will initially sell with Android, but I would not be surprised with a PicUntu version is also sold later, and even an MK 902 II Chromebox could hit the market, since Rockchip released Chromium OS overlay files for RK3288.
