ESP32 is comming

Espressif announced on 05/11/2015 the upcoming ESP32 chip:esp32ann

 

While the specs are impressive a lot of questions a rise :

  • Support – Espressif is a small company as far as we knew – would they be able to support both chips in the long term?
  • Compatibility with esp8266?  – The new ESP32 will use the RTOS based SDK and most APIs are said to be compatible with the esp8266 SDK.
  • Price – The price will be higher than esp8266  but not much higher.

Beta testing program is coming soon.
