It's a new H2 revision with minor changes (an extra nvme screw, new bios), but the same gb ethernet ports. There was a post by odroid on a different thread.

It does not sounds real.

1) Intel SoC used in H2 has 6 PCIe 2.0 lines, 4 of them are used for storage and only two are dedicated for two ethernets. One lane is insufficient for 5 Gbit ethernet. Two is sufficient but only for one ethernet.
2) Hardkernel uses Realtek NICs and Realtek still offers only 2.5G ethernet as I know.

@Ellicott - If anyone from ameriDroid said that, they were incorrect. We don't know about any new models or features.

This information is (now) on the H2 product page :
From June 2019, Rev-B board will be shipped. The improvements are as below;

– CLK-REQ signal pull resistor is added to support a PCIe-to-SATA bridge board
– 12V SATA power source improvement for high power HDDs.
– Add a M.2 screw for NVMe storage installation
– Preinstalled the latest BIOS 1.05.

June 2019, though, not 2020. (And 1.05 isn’t the latest BIOS.) That text has been there for a while from what I remember.

I wish someone would stop making new schematics for these imaginary models, from Odroid Wiki:

3 2019/12/15 Rev H2+
- The Peripheral Expansion Header became 20pin to 24 pin by adding HMD-CEC, 5VA+, D+, D-
- Change 1G to 2.5G LAN
- Fix SATA 12V run power management bug

Indeed. We'll have to wait for the official announcement though.

I had a feeling someone let it slip and the OP was indeed right, man 2.5 gbit and CEC.... That is EXCELLENT.

But cec was suppose to be expensive - and since it exposes pins, it may require an adapter/addon board.

Even if it needs an external attachment it still is nice, this was one of the shortcomings for a lot of those looking to use the H2 as a media center.

I know there is the USB CEC adapter by pulse eight but that isn't a very elegant solution.

I'm guessing it will use something like this:

Odroid maybe provide some adapter when it will be released like they are seling SATA cables and other goodies for H2. There are also new USB 2.0 port provided using GPIO header (pins D+ and D-) which will also require adapter to standard connector if you want to use it as standard connector.

That was leaked unintentionally.
We will officially announce it two or three weeks later.
Until that time frame, I'll not reply to this thread. Please be patient (silently).

It's interesting to know about more USB ports, as I think there is a lot of people having USB peripherals; mouse, keyb., printer, scanner, 4G router, USB memory sticks, external USB disks,... and they are forced to use ugly USB hubs.

I just want one usb-c port to power the device instead of yet another weird adaptor with a barrel connector. I've already got a tangled mess of those collecting dust in my closet. 20V/3A should work just fine so dunno what the problem is.
