Most of the specs are the same. There is a difference in Sensor and Chip. While MGCOOL Explorer uses an 8MP Sony Sensor and an Allwinner V3 chip, EKEN H9 uses a 4MP Omnivision Sensor and a Sunplus Processor.
There are also some differences in features both cameras offer:
In contrast to EKEN H9, MGCOOL Explorer has a few more options: It offers video time-lapse. In that mode a video file is created out of your time-lapse. While photo-timelapse only creates individual pictures you have to combine on your computer. Photo-timelapse is available on both cams.
FOV (field of view)
MGCOOL Explorer also offers FOV selection where you can select wide, middle and narrow.
While EKEN H9 offers 3 pics per second in burst mode, Explorer offers 10 pics/sec.
Explorer also allows manual white balance control.
On the other side EKEN H9 offers a bit more accessories. Several screws and adaptors are included, as well as a wall charger.
Here are two photos taken at the same time. I uploaded them in full sensor resolution without editing. When you click them you can access the photos who they came straight out of the cameras:
