In the market there are more and more rivals that exist for Raspberry Pi, rivals that try to copy or improve certain aspects of Raspberry Pi, but what did not exist is an attempt to copy and imitate Raspberry Pi Zero, the new raspberry computer board what a good reception it has had and is having. Orange Pi has noticed the latest model and has tried to create your own with an 'orange' touch.
Orange Pi One is the name of this new SBC board and while it doesn't cost the same as the Pi Zero, Orange Pi One is priced low, about $ 10, which will make many users look favorably on this new Orange model.
The power of the Orange Pi One is similar to that of the Pi Zero: an AllWinner H3 quadcore Cortex-A7 processor at 1,2 Ghz, 512 MB ram, Mali 400 GPU, microsd slots for internal storage, hdmi output, ethernet port, usb 2.0 port and microusb port. They will also have the usual 40-pin GPIO ports, a power socket, and an on / off button.
Orange Pi One will cost approximately 12 euros in Spain
However, Orange Pi One is a board that will be able to run not only Android but also Gnu / Linux and Ubuntu 16.04, the next LTS version of the Canonical distribution. In this regard, the Orange Pi One far exceeds the Pi Zero board.
The price as we have said will be $ 10, a price slightly higher than the price of the Pi Zero, however for Spain or another European country, if we want to buy it, Orange Pi One will cost us almost 12 euros with shipping costs included, a very interesting price if we want to create cheap projects and powerful.
Personally, I think this new Orange Pi model is very interesting, but if 512 mb of ram had been added to this device, the results would have been exceptional. Still I don't think it's the only model that Orange Pi takes out or even the only rival that Pi Zero has What do you think?
