After the succession of LinkStar-H68K, Seed Studio has announced LinkStar-H68K-1432 V2 a pocket-sized router powered by the Rockchip RK3568 SoC. The most interesting feature of this router is that it features 2 x 1GbE and 2 x 2.5GbE ports with dual-band Wi-Fi 6 and a 4K-capable HDMI 2.0 output. Not only that it will also come with Android 11 preinstalled, so it’s more like a media server rather than a router.

The RK3568 is a Quad-core 64-bit CPU with a Cortex-A55 CPU running at 2.0GHz it also has an ARM-G52 2EE GPU with support for 4K 60FPS video output. Additionally, the device has multiple storage options! including a 32GB onboard eMMC, a microSD card slot for more, and a USB 3.0 Type-C port (now with SATA support) all these features with that 2.5GbE network connectivity make it a good NAS.

This device features improved thermal management, replacing the standard mesh finish with an integrated heat dissipation strip for better cooling. Additionally, the router now supports a wider power input voltage range of 5-24V, including convenient powering via a 5V Type-C connection.
