Three years after the first release of ODROID-Go and a year after the upgraded model ODROID-Go Advance, Hardkernel has once again released a new OGA hardware design, dubbed the ODROID-Go Super. This is a successor and upgraded version of ODROID-Go Advance (OGA) with a 5" display and tempered cover glass.

Just like the base model, Odroid-Go Super is also based around Rockchip RK3326 SoC with a quad-core Arm Cortex-A35 processor with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU and includes 1GB of DDR3L RAM, 16MB of SPI flash storage, and a microSD card. The most important feature in this upgraded product is the screen size, which has increased from 3.5" to 5" with resolution increasing more than two times from 480x320 to 854x480 pixels.

Additionally, the battery capacity has increased from 3000mAh (for OGA) to 4000mAh (OGS), which is a boost of around 30% with the claim that the device can run for several hours. The ODROID-Go Super comes with a mono speaker, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB 2.0 port. The SD card slot is now a push-push type (spring eject) rather than the push-pull one provided by its predecessors.

Other upgrades for the ODROID-Go Super include a second analog joystick and dedicated volume buttons. The gadget requires 5V/1.5A power through a DC connector, and it even supports a faster USB WiFi+BT because of no built-in slow wireless connectivity.

Unlike other models that come as a DIY kit, the ODROID-Go Super will be pre-assembled in the factory. They're expected to begin selling (for $80) and shipping at the end of January 2021.
