Huawei introduces HiKey 960 rival to Raspberry Bay




Huawei has released its version of the HiKey 960 Android Tablet, which is similar to the famous Raspberry Pi. The company tends to offer its leading phones at competitive prices to companies such as Samsung and Apple but has not followed the same strategy with the new board directed to a market controlled by Raspberry Bay .

Huawei’s HiKey 960 board charges around $ 240, nearly seven times the Raspberry Bay price of $ 35. Compared to Raspberry Bay, the HiKey 960 offers developers a whole new and clearer look than other high performance alternatives such as the Tinker 60 dollars.

The HiKey 960 takes its name from the 9-octane core system of the 9-core Kirin 960, which includes the Kirin 960 quadrature processor with four Cortex-A73 four-core Cortex-A73 nuclei and four Cortex-A53 nuclei at 1.8 GHz.

It also features the Mali-G71 MP8 graphics processing chip. Huawei also highlighted the developer’s access to the PCIe M.2 interface for additional high-performance storage performance or wireless cards, suggesting that the comparison between HiKey 960 and Raspberry Pi may be illogical .

The HiKey board has twice the number of processing nuclei and about twice the frequency of the Raspberry Bay processor, plus three times the Raspberry B memory for random access of 1 GB. The Mali-G71 chip can also output 4K graphics, and the board has HDMI 1.2a, which can display at 1080p.

The HiKey panel goes to Android developers looking for a Tablet PC style, unlike the Raspberry Bay, and this is the second tablet of HiKey developers, preceded by HiKey620.

The tablet supports both Android and Linux systems so developers can build and test ARM applications, and can be used for robots, drones and other smart devices. The board has 32GB of internal storage and 3 GB of RAM.
