Are you waiting for a new single-board computer with powerful RK3399 processor by Rockchip?? The RK3399 with support of USB 3.0 is now included a new single-board computer by FriendlyELEC - NanoPi M4 from 65 USD.

You can buy a few SBCs which have RK3399. E.g. Odroid N1, OrangePi RK3399 or Firefly RK3399.
The NanoPi M4 is not the first board with RK3399. The first is NanoPC-T4 for 109 USD (August of 2018).

What is interesting on NanoPi M4? Lower price compare with competitors - 65 USD for 2GB RAM - and the dimension of NanoPi M4 board is the same like RaspberryPi 3.

Between the major parts of board belong RK3399 processor (Dual-Core Cortex-A72 @2.0GHz, Quad-Core Cortex-A53 @1.5GHz, Mali-T864 GPU), 2 GB DDR3-1866 or 4 GB LPDDR3-1866, socket for eMMC memory, native gigabit ethernet, WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, 4x USB 3.0 Type A, USB Type-C (USB 2.0 a OTG), slot for microSD card, 40 pin header and also 24 pin header.
FriendlyELEC offers a few supported OS: FriendlyDesktop 18.04 (Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 64-bit), FriendlyCore 18.04 (Ubuntu Core 18.04 64-bit), Android 7.1 (eMMC module is needed, 8 GB for 9.90 USD) and Lubuntu 16.04 32-bit.
