Banana Pi BPI-M5 Amlogic S905x3 design
Case BPI-M2 Pro Premium Aluminum Enclosure

Banana Pi BPI-M2 Pro is the next generation single board computer from Banana Pi in 2021. It is powered by Amlogic S905X3 quad-core Cortex-A55 (2.0 XXGHz) processor.Onboard 2GB LPDDR4 memory and 16GB EMMC storage, and supports 2 USB 3.0 interface, a gigabit network port. RT8821CU wifi&BT onboard. 1 HDMI output

BPI-M2 Pro same size as Banana Pi BPI-M2+ , and interface is also same .so can use BPI-M2+ case.

Development

Source code

same to BPI-M5 source code.

Resources

System image

same to BPI-M5 images.
Note: M2Pro is onboard 2GB ram, it's not work well for android, suggest to buy m5.
