About three years after launching a tiny single-board computer called the Orange Pi Zero, the folks at Shenzhen Xunlong are introducing a Orange Pie Zero2 with a faster processor, an HDMI port, and other upgrades.

It still measures just 2.2″ x 2.2″ across, making it one of the smallest single-board computers I’m aware of to feature a 64-bit, quad-core processor and full-sized USB, HDMI, and Ethernet ports.

Orange Pi Zero2

The Orange Pi Zero2 isn’t available for purchase yet, but CNX-Software has a few pictures and a run-down of the key specs:

  • Allwinner H6 ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit quad-core processor with ARM Mali-T720 graphics
  • 512MB of LPDDR3 RAM
  • 4GB of eMMC flash storage
  • MicroSD card reader (up to 32GB)
  • HDMI 2.0a port
  • 10/100 Ethernet
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and micro USB 2.0 ports
  • 26-pin Raspberry Pi-compatible header

Other features include an IR receiver, power and status LED lights, a microphone, and support for 5V power adapters that plug into the micro USB port. The system is said to support 10-bit H.265 HEVC video decoding at up to 4K/60Hz resolutions.

There’s no word on the price or release date, but as CNX-Software notes, a larger Orange Pi device with similar hardware sells for about $20, while the latest version of the Orange Pie Zero LTS with less powerful hardware is currently priced at about $8 and up.

  1. I think that is very interesting. It would be neat to see the computers / boxes that is made for it. I hope the price is as small as the board.
