Jide announces 4 new hardware with Remix OS, and anticipates some of the partnerships that will see its operating system based on Android better supported by the x86 machines.
We start from this: Chih-Wei Huang, founder and senior developer of the Android-x86 project, enters Jide team. Will deal with the Remix OS compatibility with all hardware non-ARM, then laptops, tablets and 2-in-1 now sold with Windows or Linux. Bring “Linux on the desktop going from Android,” it is the official reason of the passage.
Acer Aspire ES1-131 with Remix OS
His first project (and this is the first new hardware) is a Acer Aspire ES1-131 with Remix OS sold in a limited edition on the Asian market. The laptop will have Celeron N3150 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 500 GB of HDD space and a 11.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. The result will be a low-end Android notebook, often with frame 21.2 mm and 1,250 grams of weight. Not so great for the category, but probably with a good list price.
Remix Pro 2-in-1
Quite another thing will Jide Remix Pro, a 2-in-1 CPU Snapdragon 652 8-core, 12-inch display with 2160 x 1440 pixels, 3 GB of RAM and 9000 mAh battery run by Remix OS 3. The new OS version is updated to Android Marshmallow correcting bugs and known issues. Among other specifications: 5:08 megapixel cameras, 32GB of eMMC space with microSD for expansion, ac Dual Band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, the GPU Adreno 530 on a 6.9 mm thick frame from 640 grams. Remix Pro will be launched first in the Chinese market with a combined cover the keyboard, but there are no records of the international distribution.
Remix Box PC (Mini 2)
hardware upgrade for Remix OS for Mini PC. The old Remix Mini gives way to a reference design with Rockchip RK3368 CPU, 1.2 GB of RAM, 16/08 GB eMMC microSD, WiFi N, 100 Ethernet, 2 USB and HDMI 2.0 with 4K 60 Hz support. The OS will Jide Remix OS 3. do you know that this Mini PC is still developing, but unlike 2015 edition (especially interesting for the sale price – see our review) could get under the brand of other manufacturers .
AOC Mars All-in-One
Closes the list of a new update to its line of All-in-One PC with OS Remix produced by AOC. There will be 3 versions: 22, 24 and 32 inches, all with AMLogic S905 CPU, Mali-450 graphics MP5, 2 GB of RAM, 16/64 GB eMMC space, full HD resolution, 4 USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, WiFi and integrated speakers. Curious choice to use an SoC optimized especially for multimedia playback (same Minix Neo U1 and other TV box) even on PC suited for creating content, but much will depend on the sale price. At the time Jide did not leave information about it.
