Orange Pi 800 Keyboard PC gets 128GB flash storage

The Orange Pi 800 keyboard PC, launched as an alternative to the Raspberry Pi 400 last year with a Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core Cortex-A72/A53 processor and 4GB RAM, has gotten an upgrade to 128GB of eMMC flash instead of just 64GB.

The keyboard PC still comes with HDMI 2.0 and VGA video outputs, built-in speakers and microphone, Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi 5 connectivity, a few USB ports, and a 78-key QWERTY keyboard, plus a 26-GPIO connector accessible without opening the device.

Software support is still the same as the original announcement with Orange Pi OS (Android 12), Manjaro, Ubuntu, 22.04, and Debian 11, but they can now be found on the download page along with Android and Linux source code, a user manual, and software tools. There’s no Armbian support at all at this time due to the lack of a maintainer.

So besides the extra storage capacity, nothing has apparently changed. A Rockchip RK3588S upgrade would have been more interesting. What’s somewhat new since the launch in September 2022 is the choice of optional accessories that include the low-cost Orange Pi 14-inch portable monitor and Orange Pi-branded mouse and full HD webcam. While the (still available) original Orange Pi 800 (64GB) sells for $99, the Orange Pi 800 128GB goes for $108 plus shipping on Aliexpress or $9 more. Having said that the company recommends you purchase the 5V/4A power adapter in order to avoid powering issues. A full kit with all accessories including the portable display, mouse, webcam, and power adapter goes for $198.

If this were RK3588S (or not S) based, this would be such an easy pick. Put in a small slot for M.2 NVME and built in wireless (with a decent sized antenna(s)) as well. Forget the eMMC, then.

Optional Li-ion battery….

I’ll stop dreaming.

Naming it “800” when it doesn’t have an 8-core RK3588 or 8 GB of RAM was so blatantly bad. At least it has 120+8 GB of storage now.

The name doesn’t matter to me at all. As long as they don’t call it that C64. 🙂

Steven from Orange pi / Xunlong is my friend 😉 .. another news/update for you .. within next 3~5 weeks the Orange Pi will launch Orang Pi 3B SBC based on RK3566 + NVME +USB 3 + Gbit eth + emmc module … Hopefully the price for bare metal SBC with 2 GB RAM will be around 25$ USD and if conditions permits then SBC + 32 GB emmc module + Power supply bundle will sell for around 35$ USD..so now please do not complain and support Orange PI instead of that greedy Raspberry PI foundation who by pretext of… Read more »

That sounds very nice. I can happily live without any wireless, but GigE is very nice.

Raspberry Pi has been a scam from the beginning, just not visible by everyone, as is the exact nature of scams. nothing to fear though, despite seeming to have had an immediate huge effect on our world. excellent to encounter something truthful being said about it here

I hope you haven’t just clobbered your friend with the Osborne Effect! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osborne_effect)

May be or may not be BUT the same thing applies to the competitor product the Raspberry-pi 400 naturally , as getting this news out will have so called “Osborne effect” coming into play with respect of Raspberry pi 400 prospect customers ..is`nt that ? ultimately Opi has not much to loose but to gain and vice versa for Raspberry pi … 😉

It sort of has had an effect on me. I was thinking of picking up one of the BTT H616 boards, but I’m going to wait, now and maybe get two or more of these Opi boards. I’m also pondering one of the Opi5 variants–I have the 5, but I like the port arrangement of the variants.

I don’t suppose you can confirm they are using a different wifi chip now are they? That’s literally the only thing keeping me at bay on the 800. Nothing against Unisoc but compared to Realtek/Mediatek/Qualcomm I have no experience with this chip and there’s seemingly no progress on a mainline Linux driver.

edit: It goes without saying if I had this device or the RK3588s based model it would only be a matter of time before I complete a mainline port of it and upstream it (video is still a massive work in progress for the 3588 though). 🙂
