Yesterday, I discovered DealExtreme listed four versions of new Allwinner A80 mini PC called Jesurun Maxone, with a combination of 2GB RAM/16GB Flash, or 4GB RAM/32GB flash, and US or EU power adapters, for respectively $167.40 and $207. But after a closer look, I found out those boxes are probably based on the same hardware used for Tronsmart Draco AW80 Meta and Telos, minus the external Wi-Fi antenna, and the price was a little higher so I did not feature this device in a new article. But today, GearBest provided a coupon code (JM4GCN) allowing to get Maxone 4GB RAM for $183.99, or about $15 discount compared to Draco AW80 Telos. They’ve also provided JM2GCN coupon for the 2GB RAM version, but the price ($149.99) is almost exactly the same as Draw AW80 Meta. Remember that when shopping online from oversea websites, you may be hit by custom duties back home, so try to estimate the duty (if any) in advance, as a $150 device may end up costing $300 in some countries once you include all potential fees (VAT, import duty, courier customs service charge, etc..)
- SoC – AllWinner Ultra Core A80 4x Cortex 15 @ 1.8 GHz, 4x Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz big.LITTLE processor with Imagination Technologies PowerVR GC6230 GPU with support for OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0/3.0, Directx 9.3
- System Memory – 2GB or 4GB DDR3 depending on model
- Storage – 16 GB or 32GB eMMC (depending on model), SD card slot up to 32GB, and SATA port (via a USB 2.0/3.0 bridge)
- Video Output – HDMI 1.4b + AV port
- Audio – HDMI, AV, and optical S/PDIF
- (Main) Video Codecs – H.265/VP9 up to 1080p @ 30 fps (software decode?), H.264/VP8 up to 4K2K @ 30fps, 1080p120, or 720p240
- Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with external antenna, Bluetooth 4.0
- USB – 1x USB 3.0 OTG port (full size), 2x USB 2.0 host ports
- Misc – IR receiver
- Power Supply – 12V/2A
- Dimensions – 14.8 x 14.8.4 x 2.3 cm
- Weight – 301 grams
The only difference is that it’s apparently lighter (301 grams vs 442 grams), and the dimensions are also different with Jesurun Maxone being a smaller product (14.8 cm vs 16.4 cm). This is possible even if Maxone and Draco AW80 are based on the same hardware, because as you can check in my unboxing post, the PCBA is smaller than the enclosure for Draco AW80.
