  • Two doors USB 3.0 and two 2.0 USB ports;
  • Support for dual monitors at a resolution up to 4K;
  • VideoCore VI graphics, support for OpenGL ES 3.x;

The models will be three differentiated by the amount of memory, 1, 2, 4 Gb, which will be placed on price ranges, respectively, of $ 35, $ 45 and $ 55. To see what the conversions in euros will be.

Change the power connectorand, which switches from microUSB to USB-C, which guarantees support for the 1,2As needed for full power of the unit. Obviously it will be possible to use a converter to continue using the previous power supplies.

While the USB ports will present (two out of four) full support for USB 3.0.

So it's up to us to expect a change in the price of the previous models (especially the 3B +, the last one before this 4 B); the new model is already available at Raspberry Pi Foundation as well as, soon, in the major online stores.

UPDATE: Raspberry Pi Model 4B is now available on Amazon.

Domotics (and not only): it is better to "make oneself" a Raspberry Pi?
