Most of you have probably heard of Jide Technology thus far, a company behind Remix OS, an operating system which essentially turns Android OS in a desktop operating system. Anyhow, during Computex 2016, Jide has shown off their new Remix Pro tablet, though they haven’t announced it back then. The company was also said to be preparing an all-new all-in-one PC running Remix OS, but we haven’t heard anything about that since May. Well, the time has come, the company has introduced the Remix Pro 2-in-1 tablet, AOC Mars All-in-One PC, Acer Aspire ES-131 laptop and a Remix OS-powered PC box during the 2016 Preview Event in Beijing.
As you can see, we’re looking at four devices here, and the company partnered with Acer and AOC in order to make this happen. Anyhow, let’s start from the top, shall we, first in line is the Remix Pro 2-in-1 tablet. This is the second-gen tablet by this company, and also the first device to run Remix OS 3 which is based on Android Marshmallow. The device will first be available in China, and will move to more markets soon after that, said the company. This device sports a 12-inch fullHD Retina IPS 10-point touch screen, along with 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage (expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card). The 8-megapixel camera can be found on the back of this tablet, and a 5-megapixel snapper is available up front. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 652 64-bit octa-core SoC, along with the Adreno 510 GPU. The 9,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it supports quick charging. The device measures 289.5 x 207 x 6.9mm, while it weighs 640 grams.
Next in line is AOC Mars All-in-One PC. Some of you probably know that Jide and AOC already announced a 24-inch All-in-One PC at CES Asia 2016, and the company has now introduced two new variants, the 22-inch and 32-inch models. This device packs in the Amlogic S905 64-bit quad-core processor running at 2GHz, and ARM’s Mali 450 GPU clocked at 750MHz. This PC comes with 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 64GB of native storage. The device includes 4 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, an audio out, and 2 speakers, while it weighs 3.9kg. The Acer Aspire ES1-131 laptop has also been announced today. This is an 11.6-inch laptop which comes with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The device packs in 4GB of RAM and 500GB of internal storage, while it is fueled by Intel’s Celeron N3150 quad-core processor running at 1.6GHz. This device measures 291 x 211 x 21.2mm, and weighs 1.25kg.
The last hardware product Jide announced is the Remix OS PC box. This device also runs Remix OS 3, and comes with Rockchip 3368 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. This PC box will be available in two variants, one will ship with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage, while the other one will come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. Both of these models will offer microSD card expansion up to 128GB. This PC box packs in 2 USB Type-A ports, Bluetooth 4.0 and WLAN 802.11 b/g/n 2.4G. In addition to all this, Jide has announced that they’ve hired Chih-Wei Huang, a veteran developer who will head the company’s x86 efforts. Chih-Wei Huang is not only an experienced developer, but also the Android-x86 Open Source Project founder. The company did not release any specific availability details for these devices, so we’ll have to sit tight and wait for more info.
