The Raspberry Pi Foundation has finally unveiled the Raspberry Pi 4 and it’s awesome than ever, with the same physical design the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B looks almost similar to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.
Its a single-board computer with a lot of connectors that are decked into as small as a card.
Update: Raspberry Pi Foundation launced 8GB RAM variant of the Raspberry Pi 4
What’s new in Raspberry Pi 4?
First thing first the all-new upgrade comes in with a faster processor which now uses the Cortex-A72 architecture (quad-core 64-bit ARMv8 at 1.5GHz) and it also supports H.265 hardware video decoding for instance.
Finally, the Raspberry Pi 4 is available in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB RAM memory variant which has been stuck at 1GB RAM for years.
Memory speed should also be upgraded with switching from LPDDR2 to LPDDR4. Raspberry Pi 4 now supports Gigabit Ethernet (instead of Ethernet over USB 2.0).
It comes in with two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports and now you get a USB-C port for the power brick. Bluetooth has also been updated to Bluetooth 5.0 from Bluetooth 4.2.
The full-size HDMI port has been removed and two micro-HDMI ports have been added, which let you plug two 4K displays at 60 frames per second using one Raspberry Pi.
The rest specifications are same as any Raspberry Pi user have seen, There’s a microSD card slot so that you can put the operating system and user data on a memory card. There’s a 40-pin GPIO header that should be compatible with existing add-on boards.
Pricing and Availability:
The product has been launched today and is available through authorized Raspberry Pi retailers.
The base model still costs $35 (~Rs. 2,652), while the 2GB RAM model costs $45 (~Rs. 3,409).
