The Banana Pi BPI-MP2 Pro debuted earlier this year, but it is now purchasable worldwide. Currently, the single-board computer (SBC) is available for US$61 on AliExpress, albeit excluding postage.
To recap, the BPI-M2 Pro has an Amlogic S905X3 SoC that features four ARM Cortex-A55 cores. The 65 x 65 mm board also has 2 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 16 GB of eMMC flash storage at its disposal. Banana Pi has also included a microSD card reader should you need more storage, though.
Additionally, the BPI-M2 Pro has 40-pin GPIO pins, two USB 3.0 ports, a micro USB 2.0 connection and a Gigabit Ethernet port. Moreover, there is an HDMI 2.1 connection that supports 4K output at 60 Hz. The BPI-M2 Pro requires 5V of DC power at 3A, for reference.
The manufacturer has included built-in Wi-Fi too and supports up to the Wi-Fi 802.11 ac standard. In addition, the manufacturer claims that the BPI-M2 Pro is compatible with Android 9.0 Pie and Linux (CoreELEC, Debian, Ubuntu).
