Chinese device maker Rikomagic plans to launch a new Android TV stick in mid-April. Like some other models we’ve seen recently, the upcoming MK802 IV will feature a Rockchip RK3188 ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

But the MK802 IV is also expected to ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, offering Google’s latest software.

The Rikomagic name also carries a bit of brand recognition — about a year ago the first-generation Rikomagic MK802 was one of the first Android mini PCs to make waves in the West.

But to be perfectly honest, the pre-release images of the MK802 IV look very familiar — it appears to be based on the same design as the upcoming Tronsmart T428. The only difference is that the Tronsmart model is expected to ship with Android 4.1.


Rikomagic’s new model features Mali 400 graphics, 8GB of storage, built-in 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth.

It has a USB 2.0 host port and a microUSB port which it uses for power. There’s also a microSD card slot for extra storage. It remains to be seen whether you’ll be able to boot from a removable storage card — but that’s a feature that’s helped make a number of similar devices interesting, since not only can you load firmware updates from removable storage, you can also often run other Linux-based operating systems such as Ubuntu.

The company is also introducing a new air mouse/remote control called the MK702 II. It features a built-in keyboard on one side and number, volume, direction, and other buttons on the other.

The remote also a microphone and speaker which you can use for voice controls.

You can use the remote with a PC or Android TV box with a USB receiver. It also has an IR port and can work with other media device, and functions as a learning remote. Rikomagic also points out that the MK702 II is compatible with the Sony Playstation 3.

  4. Hi,

    Do you know if a MINIX NEO powered with RK3188 is planned ?

    And do you have any informations about the CR10 box by Cloudnet (which has already announced their own RK3188 dongle, the CR9).
    It seems to be a RK3188 powered box:

    Thanks 🙂

    1. There were some rumblings regarding a Neo X7. Similar form factor as the X5 but with RK3188.

      1. I have looked at that, but I reallly like that the riko has a speaker and mic, especially with voice search style apps becoming the norm.

        I just wish it was bluetooth…then I could use it with my phone too

  5. I’d much prefer this in a proper box case with an Ethernet port and more USB ports.

    1. No need a ethernet, you can just buy a USB LAN adapter. That will work.

      1. the USB 2.0 Ethernet adapter are slow. We need good Wi-Fi or a real Ethernet port

        1. you are right… I also have the same problem.. I can’t obtain more that 2mbps !!! 🙁
