K101Plus Shipping Soon, Crystal Case Version Later!

 

It’s been two and a half years since the original Revo K101 was released, and true to his word that he would never give up on it, Max Zhou has announced a new hardware revision of the K1 powered GBA clone. I’ve been holding off posting about this thing because I wanted to get some info on what changes have been made since the original hardware was released in September 2012. Today I managed to get a translation of something Max Zhou posted on the internet that outlines the changes made in the new version. The K101Plus is not a successor to the K101, really it’s just had some tweaks and improvements made to it, with a smattering of improvements added to boot.

A Round Up Of K101 Images

Out of sheer boredom I decided to hunt around the Baidu forum and round up as many images as I could of the new K101 prototypes. I’m afraid I can’t really share much else to put these in context (cos I can’t read Chinese and Google Translate is terrible), apart from the dates that they were posted up. It looks like it’s probably in the final stages of development anyway. Take a look.

Edit: It might help if I explained what the K101 was (doh). It’s the K1 hardware inside a different shell, MaxZhou88 is the man behind the product and this one will have real RTC built in. Other differences to the original K1 seem to be a MiniUSB port (for charging, I guess) and a normal 3.5mm AV Out port.

From the 26th of April, a white unit with black shoulder buttons struts its stuff. Very smart indeed.
