What's the Difference between the 2019 version and 2018 version?

Besides the red power button, what is the difference between the 2018 version and the 2019 version of the Hi9 Plus? I just purchased one in March, but got a 2018 version. If there are more differences I'll return it and get the 2019 version.

Thanks.

Chuwi has not published different firmware for one or another version nor has it indicated any new functionality except the aesthetic of the red button. I do not think there's anything different between the two models

I see on the downloads page that two different firmwares are provided depending on whether the serial number is above or below. Certain range. Could this be related to the emergnce of the red button version?

The firmware is here. It appears to be the 3.26 version, but I am finding the instructions impossible to follow (no scatter file, not sure how to parse the serial number distinction)

I do not know, but if you look, only the Android varies, but the driver file is the same, so I think the devices are the same with a more updated android.

That's a pretty big clue! I have been wondering if the wireless screen issue is even fixable via OTA. My theory is that the screens are installed upside down, which would explain why the error graphic that displays when the OTA fails is shown upside down at the top of the  screen near the camera. They probably fix this in android via the display driver or something, but can't influence (or forgot to account for) the wireless display. The test would be to see whether the OTA failure graphic appears upside down on the red-button version too.
Can anyone confirm?

You are lucky! They seem to have a whole different version for you: 04.01

My wireless update app is still only seeing 03.25, which results in a "dead android" error screen, and no update.
