Back in May, I wrote a news article on the MK705 quad core RK3188 Android Mini PC that came with a built-in 5MP camera. The Hi705 RK3188 Android Mini PC is either an OEM or rebranded version of the MK705. The hardware specification and the design of the Hi705 is identical to the MK705 as far as I can tell.
The reason that I have decided to write about the Hi705 is that it is available from online merchant PriceAngels. The MK705 is selling at Amazon at $170 as of this article’s publication but the Hi705 is listed at only $116 with free worldwide shipping from PriceAngels. Amazon also does not ship to all countries so if Amazon is out of bounds to you, you might want to give PriceAngels a try.
Here is a quick recap of the MK705 and Hi705 specifications:
- CPU: Rockchip RK3188 Quad Core Cortex-A9
- Operating system: Android 4.2
- DDR RAM:1G
- Nand Flash: 8G
- Camera: Built-in 5.0MP
- Bluetooth: Bluetooth V4.0
- Network device : Wireless 802.11b/g
- Storage device: Support External storage via USB host
- Support External storage via TF card
Hardware wise, the Hi705 seems to be pretty good at least on paper. Besides the built-in camera, it also has a port to connect an external WiFi antenna.
