Jide’s Remix Mini isn’t the only cheap mini-desktop computer that runs Jide’s Android-based, desktop-style operating system. The Unuiga S905 is a similar device with a 64-bit ARM-based processor, Remix OS 2.0 software, and a starting price of $25… for the first 100 people to back the project’s crowdfunding campaign.

There’s on small catch though: shipping costs for the Unuiga S905 can double the price of the mini PC in some situations.

Update: International shipping prices have been cut a bit.

The little computer features an Amlogic S905 ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core processor with Mali-450 graphics and features Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0, S/PDIF, two USB 2.0 ports, and a microSD card reader.

Once the early bird pricing for the entry-level model is gone, the price for a single unit goes up to $30. There’s also a Unuiga S905+ model that’s priced at $45 (or $5 less for early birds).

The cheaper models feature 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The Plus version features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and 802.11ac WiFi.

Both models measure about 4.4″ x 4.4″ x 0.8″.

The Unuiga S905 will ship from China, and the company behind the project expects to be able to ship bulk purchases of 5 or more units in April, with individual units shipping in May. That catch I was talking about though? Shipping to the US runs $26… which means that you could end up paying $51 for a $25 device or $66 for a $40 model.

Update: Shipping to the US and most other countries has been cut to $15. 

That’s still less than you’d pay for a Remix Mini, though. Jide’s mini PC with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage is currently selling for $70.

Another interesting thing about this crowdfunding project is that it seems to be a partnership between Unuiga and ARMDevices, a mobile technology website and video channel operated by mobile enthusiast Charbax.

  1. I’ve convinced them to add a cheaper shipping option, for example now shipping to the USA is $15. While DHL is 3-5 days shipping, the cheaper shipping option can take 3-4 weeks to deliver after leaving China.

  2. This doesn’t seem significantly better than my KS Remix Mini 2G. Maybe the Mali 450 is a step-up, but since I don’t play games on it…

  3. I’m not sure how knocking off an existing product warrants a crowd-funded campaign?

      1. I think It’s a closed source OS, but it’s free of charge to install it on x86.

          1. Remix is not yet open source, I hope they decide to make it open source. But Remix wants to be on as many platforms as possible so they’re happy to work with Unuiga on this and to keep optimizing Remix OS for the Amlogic S905.

  4. I bought the Remix Mini and for the most part I like it. The OS works just fine. The biggest problem I have is the sluggishness. I would like to see one of these mini PCs have 3-4G RAM and an upgraded CPU and GPU.

    1. ARM Cortex-A72 with 8GB RAM running Remix Android N, coming soon probably. Every Smartphone needs to output Remix to any external display, Remix must become Android Continuum. I look forward to Google I/O.

      1. More just get an Intel NUC and install Remix. That’s the beauty of a free OS.

  5. The odroid c2 devs have said that 4k resolution is only for video playback, that the kodi and desktop resolution should be 1080p. It looks like this is a hardware limitation by amlogic s905. I will be skipping the s905.

    1. How about the graphics on the $45 “s905+” version? Does anyone know what GPU is used on that version? The graphics performance?

    2. Not true. I have a s905 box and it supports 4k as a display resolution.

    3. I have a generic mxmini, s905, and the desktop can be set to 4kx2k @60hz .. So when you run KODI (v17 Krypton) you get the same resolution. Although depending on the codec used by your 4k video file, it works great or it jitters.
