Shenzhen, China, 2022, Xunlong Software officially launched Orange Pi 800, the first keyboard computer in China, which realizes new possibilities of portability and functionality for thousand-dollar computers by defining higher standards of chip, system, function and design.
Orange Pi 800 is equipped with Rexchip RK3399 64-bit 6-core processor, specifically dual-core Cortex-A72 (large core) + quad-core Cortex-A53 (small core), with a maximum main frequency of 1.8GHz, which can easily manage even in the face of industrial-grade application scenarios. The pre-installed Orange Pi OS is a light-weight Linux-based operating system that supports a large number of applications under Linux. It also supports Android and Manjaro, which can realize the support of its application ecology.
Orange Pi 800 is designed to provide users with a higher quality, more cost-effective, and better user experience," said the project manager of Xunlong Software. Inheriting Orange Pi's open source gene, Orange Pi 800 is also completely open source, and we hope to create, discover and imagine richer products together with users. Orange Pi 800 will bring users an unprecedented freedom, creation and rich experience."
Orange Pi OS is an Arch-based Linux distribution that integrates all the advantages of Arch with rich and comprehensive software, featuring fast operation, security and stability, beautiful interface, and simple operation, making it an easy-to-use and scalable desktop operating system.
"Orange Pi OS is resourceful and can easily perform many common Windows tasks by using compatible Linux applications, and is very easy to install - just open it, select what you need, and click 'Install'. And, most of the software is completely free." The project manager said. Meanwhile, Orange Pi OS has multimedia support and supports multi-core CPUs; supports command line installation and graphical installation; and is highly compatible with open source graphics drivers.
"Another feature of Orange Pi OS is its focus on privacy and security, which is valued by many users and developers." The project manager said Orange Pi OS does not send any data to anyone and it is entirely up to the user to decide what to share. When there is an update to the system (including software), the system will only indicate that an update is available, but it will not automatically download, install and reboot automatically in the background. Also, Orange Pi OS comes with default settings and, as with most Linux distributions, users can choose to configure, change, delete or replace any options they need.

It can be used as the "central brain" of industrial equipment to control and process data, and it can also be developed and customized to achieve more complex and powerful processing applications.
"The traditional build a central control system may require multiple control management equipment, but now just one Orange pi 800 can be all done, save the price, but also save the physical space." The project manager of Xunlong Software said that advancing the Orange Pi 800 from the C- to B-side will be the future upgrade direction of the Orange Pi series products.
