The Zidoo M6 is a single-board computer with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and support for a wide range of input and output options. It also features Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support and even works with an optional 5G or 4G LTE module thanks to a mini PCIe socket and SIM card slot.
Zidoo plans to sell the M6 in two configurations: a mini PC that comes with a chassis or a “core board” which is basically just the single-board computer. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet.
At 158mm x 95mm, the Zidoo M6 is about twice the size of a Raspberry Pi Model B. But it also packs a lot more ports/expansion options.
Here’s a run-down of some key specs:
