News from Rockchip at CES: Android 8.1 for its SoC and a new RK3229

During this CES the manufacturer Rockchip has not presented major novelties in its classic product line, although we have been able to know that at the software level some of its SoC will receive Android 8.1 soon. In particular the lucky products are the well-known RK3399, RK3328, RK3368H, RK3326 and RK3126C all in their version for tablets although surely we also see Android 8.1 in the TV-Box, a point that we hope to confirm during our usual interview with Rockchip in the next MWC in Barcelona.

On the other hand we have also known that Rockchip has received Google certifications for a version in SOM format for his Quad Core RK3229 SoC, a model with four ARM Cortex-A7 processors capable of reaching 1.5Ghz and a Mali GPU -400mp2, now also integrates PMIC, RAM and WIFI / Bluetooth. Certifications that allow this SOM to work without problems in IoT areas with direct updates from Google. It also supports services such as Google Assistant thanks to the inclusion of audio recognition features which opens the doors to equipment such as smart speakers so in vogue lately.
