The company says they provide an open-source SDK for Android 11 and Debian 10, but as usual, nothing is public, and development resources are only available to customers. Geniatech K3-3568 SBC should be found in a range of applications including commercial displays/ digital signage, security/surveillance applications, industrial control, and more.
Sample pricing is not available publicly, and the company only provides “volume quotes”, at least for this model. Additional information may be found on the product page.
