First batch from China. Think future firmware would improve on video quality. Anyway, Yi has good track record for releasing firmware to fix issues and improvements.

It's newer hardware specs VS the 1+ years old Yi dashcam hardware specs.

2.7K resolution vs 1080p. Got voice command.

Still same old lithium ion battery?

Btw, just curious, I am interested in getting a dashcam but I might not be using a car when I move to Singapore. Could it be used as an IP camera in the house for surveillance or something?

Yes still lithium battery.

It's a dashcam, not an IP cam.

I like both actually. If can wait, get the later batch of Yi dashcam King Edition as the first batch's firmware is not that stable. Hopefully, updated firmware will also have improved image quality too.

Alright thanks for your clarification! Its only the firmware update right? I dont think the first batch or second batch hardware spec will change?

Don't think the hardware specs will change. Most likely the firmware need improvements.

Price is around the same as this is to compete with Mijia.

Mijia is 1080p resolution and this King Edition is 1520p resolution.

I'm waiting for the firmware update for the King Edition first. Maybe if have time, will do a VS video.

You mean firmware V-1.01.017?

Not yet as I read someone updated and lost the English menu. Waiting for confirmation from Yi on this.
