Tinker Board S

An SBC powered by a quad-core, 64-bit Rockchip 3288 ARM Cortex-A17 SoC and 2GB LPDDR3 RAM. The board also offers HDMI 2.0 with 4K support, HD MIPI DSI, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit ethernet and a Raspberry Pi-like (although not fully compatible) 40-pin GPIO header.
There are some minor improvements on the old TinkerBoard, such as 16GB eMMC and HDMI CEC support, but the board still bears strong resemblance to the old model.
