Radxa has released a follow-up to the Rock Pi 4, the single-board computer (SBC) that it announced last year. The company has called its latest model the Rock Pi 4 Plus, emphasising that it offers more than the Rock Pi 4 does. Specifically, it has phased out the Rockchip RK3399 for the Rockchip OP1, a more powerful SoC that is also referred to as the RK3399 OP1.

The Rock Pi 4 Plus will be available in Model A and Model B variants, as outlined below. Both variants will have Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, HDMI 2.0a and a 40-pin GPIO, among other connections. The Model B gets built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi though, unlike the Model A.

According to Linux Gizmos, Radxa plans to sell the Rock Pi 4 Plus in four configurations. However, Amazon is already selling the Rock Pi 4 Plus (affiliate link), albeit at inflated prices. Amazon orders will not begin shipping until July 31, either. Radxa's proposed configurations and prices are as follows:

Model RAM Storage US pricing
Rock Pi 4 Plus Model A 2 GB LPDDR4 16 GB eMMC US$49
Rock Pi 4 Plus Model A 4 GB LPDDR4 32 GB eMMC US$65
Rock Pi 4 Plus Model B 2 GB LPDDR4 16 GB eMMC US$59
Rock Pi 4 Plus Model B 4 GB LPDDR4 32 GB eMMC US$75
