Radxa Rock 2 Development Board Pictures and Specifications

Radxa Rock 2 is an upcoming development board based on Rockchip RK3288 quad core Cortex A12/A17 processor, which will run Android, and I would expect it to have better support for Linux desktop distributions than the original Radxa Rock board thanks to the current work done by Rockchip and Google on Chromium OS, which could bring 2D/3D graphics, and hardware video decoding to the platform. The board is not available for purchase yet, but pictures have been published, and specifications released.

Radxa SoM specifications:

This module is connected to a baseboard with the following specifications:

Radxa Rock 2 is rather feature-packed, and does not seem optimized for cost.

A few more pictures can be found on Radxa Rock 2 page. Availability information is not available at this stage.
