Hi702 mini PC, a CX-919 lookalike with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth


One of the problems with the booming mini PC market in China is that there are a growing number of models using what appear to be similar chassis but sold under different model numbers. This Hi702 is a good example. We’re not sure which one was first but it’s a lookalike for the CX-919 and H9 options.

The Hi702 runs Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core Cortex A9 SoC CPU accompanied by the standard 1GB of RAM and 8GB of flash, preloaded with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system. Apparently, this version can be upgraded to Android 4.2. That storage is expandable by MicroSD card slot, good for up to 32GB per card.

There’s one Type-A USB2.0 host port plus two microUSB ports – one for DC power, the other offering USB OTG functionality.

Networking includes 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0, thanks to Broadcom’s AP6210 wireless module. The upside is that it features a single external attached antenna, which should go a fair way to offering decent connectivity. Interestingly, power specs for this call for 5VDC@700mA – we do wonder if it peaks beyond this level though when playing games like Beach Buggy Blitz.

We found this one selling on Aliexpress for around $66 including shipping interchangeably with ‘CX-919′ advertising and being called ‘Tronsmart Hi702′ so that should give you a decent idea of the mix. That’s around about as cheap as you’ll find a quad-core mini PC at the moment.
