    @Nice Monkey dinobot u5 is out of stock in most shops ! and restock has not estimated time ! i am really tempted to get one...if i can't wait for new stock...but afraid it will go the same route as egreat: great debut...but unknown company so risk of dropping updates quickly

    @nenito2k
    I remember this SoC is quite old. Future depend on HiSilicon support for Android 8/9 SDK or a new SoC release.
    Dinobot U5PVR(SE 4K) Android 7.0 firmware is already stable f/w with more than 1 year and half of developing and U5 has more than 2 years on market, not need critical update.
    Dinobot U5mini is quite new model, but benefit of all fixed f/w for U5PVR and a new IR/BT Air mouse with voice search remote is rely usefully for this box.

    Egreat has now Android 7 f/w for A3/A7Pro so is time to see if they will push out also for A5/A8/A11/A13 models after CNY.

    @E_CS i see..

    Anyway i wonder if android 7 is stable on the A13/7 !
    And yes i agree that if the fw is ready at last @Richard Xu must roll it asap to ALL models so we can finally move on
    At least we have proof now that egreat is not dead.. As new products are out ;)

    I don't think I written about A13 is release with Android 7.0.
    As I know present situation of release f/w is:
    A5/A8/A10/A11 SoC Hi3798CV200 f/w v1.3.1.6 Android 5.1.1
    A10-II/A13 SoC Hi3798CV200 f/w v1.3.1.7 Android 5.1.1
    A3/A7Pro SoC Hi3798MV200 f/w v2.3.1.7 Android 7.0

    The big display seems to be the same as the one used for A11 (Vietnamese site).
    https://www.hieuhien.vn/egreat-a13
    Overall it looks like an A11 but with Dual HDD bays now. I am not sure but the height seems different so maybe that was an early version and the display is really bigger now?

    Sold at US$ 899,- on Geekbuying.
    That is a premium price indeed.

    As far as I know the M version is a Mobile version of the chip, not a newer generation.

    I donĀ“t worry too much about A7, that will come sooner or later.

    SoC Hi3798CV200 Brief Data Sheet from site hisilicon.
    SoC Hi3798MV200 Brief Data Sheet from site hisilicon.

    Interesting Egreat push out f/w for Egreat A9-II V2 SoC Hi3798MV200 where they use 1GB Ethernet inside of 100MB Ethernet details one Egreat Chinese forum.

    @E_CS Thanks! But I seem to be behind the big wall as none of the Chinese links works for me (Bolivia).

    Things are different here. Have a Fiber to the Home Internet connection but that one gives me a whopping 3.3 Mbps speed. I am actually paying for 4 Mbps but since TV was added to it bandwidth dropped to that (TV on-demand is on another channel).

    Strange enough Netflix works reasonable well with even such a limited bandwidth. Other streaming services pause constantly.

    Indeed very confusing the way Egreat market their products! Is it run by some person with "brain damage"...sometimes I really wonder. LoL!

    in any case i really think putting out more products from egreat with that chip is proof that the company is NOT dead, but it is insane to do so in 2019...using an OS that is 4 years old ! mainly for the 900USD model ! Android 10 is coming out in 9 months and egreat is still on "lollipop" :confused::confused::confused::confused:

    @E_CS have you got any news on this android 7 "next FW" ? i know @Eric The Viking has no news since @Richard Xu left these forums, and unfortunately @Morgan never updated us on this situation. We have been waiting way way way too long for a "simple" update that all media players have...i really think this is getting extremely annoying for many users and potential buyers...

    I see Richard was on this site Friday So I contacted him got no Reply this is what I Wrote "Richard can you tell me what the Hell is going on please with Egreat and firmware PLEASE!! also I thought you had left and we had this Morgan so what is going on staff wise as well Are you closing down????" NO REPLY OF COURSE !! I am at the of my tether now I am touching 70 and have got more inportent things to do with my life than A Company 1 that does not answer any questions that are put to them even simple ones. (2 ) the software when they do bring out never works right, (3) they give out dates for release of software that never happens 2 years and still waiting for Android 7!!!!!!!. Just look at there top of the range Player the A13 even that has Android 5.1 JEEESUS I have even been on there face book and what good is that all they seem to say how much the love each other and how important they say we are but nothing happens.All of my Adult life I have never known a company like this ( even if it is (Chinnise ) but there again look at Zidoo with there Z10 & Z95 which are also Chinese bring out new software all the time EGREAT WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH YOU AT THE MOMENT WHY DO YOU NOT TALK TO US ???. I think the only person who is happy is that Brown nose ROZEL Egreat lover who stands up for Egreat if others on here have bad things to say he comes to there defence. I would like to know is there any members on here who likes there Egreat Player and is working fine it would be nice to know PS Sorry nenito I went on a bit :D
