The fourth-generation mini PC – the MK802, MK802+ and MK802 II came before it – was one of the first to switch from a single-core Allwinner A10 SoC CPU to Rockchip’s first-generation dual-core chip, the RK3066.
While it has since been overtaken by a swathe of quad-core models, including Rikomagic’s own MK802 IV, the MK802 III has been left behind a little with its original Android 4.1 operating system.
According to androidpc.es, the mini PC maker has decided to rectify that issue and has released a new official Android 4.2 for the dual-core TV stick.

The MK802 III mini PC features the Rockchip RK3066 dual-core SoC CPU clocking in at 1.6GHz, along with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash, expandable by another 32GB through its MicroSD card slot.
The MK802 III also had a sibbling – the MK802 IIIS, which added Bluetooth 4.0 to the features list.
Both devices included 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless networking along with two USB ports (one type-A host and a second microUSB OTG) and were originally sold with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system.
