Developers and technology enthusiasts those were eagerly waiting for an upgraded version of Raspberry Pi 3 i.e Raspberry Pi 4, their wait ends now. The Raspberry Pi Foundation’s official website has listed the Pi 4 board to sell to consumers.
The Raspberry Pi 4, the single-board computer is also available first time in three different RAM variants. The Raspberry Pi 4 has been improved in many technical aspects, however, the cost of the board will remain the same at around $35.

All features are same in al models execpt the LPDDR4 RAM.
The complete kit includes the Raspberry Pi 4, as well as a USB mouse, USB keyboard, SD card (32 GB), power connector, two HDMI cables, Quick start guide, USB Card Reader Dongle, Set of 3 Aluminum Heat Sinks and housing.
The latest version of the Raspberry Pi 4 uses a Broadcom BCM2711 chipset, a quad-core SoC (Cortex-A72) with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. As per the manufacturer, keeping in mind the regular demand of using dual display can be fulfilled with this one, now the users will be able to attach two independent 4K monitors with Raspberry Pi 4…
The Raspberry Pi 4 has dual-band WLAN IEEE 802.11ac and Bluetooth, plus two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports for USB storage and other peripherals.
To get video and audio output, the Raspberry Pi 4 has combined with two micro-HDMI ports that support dual 4kp60 or 4kp30 displays. Plus a 2-lane MIPI DSI display port, 2-lane MIPI CSI camera port and a 4-pin stereo -Audio and composite video port.
For installing an operating system, a micro SD card slot is also available.
The power supply (5V DC) runs either via USB-C connector (minimum 3A) or GPIO header (minimum 3A) and Power over Ethernet (PoE), the latter requires a separate PoE HAT module.
The new Raspberry Pi 4 provides support of the following formats: HEVC / H.265 (4kp60 decode); AVC / H.264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode) and OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics.
Yes, like all Raspberry Pi computers, the Raspberry Pi 4 is backwards compatible, so most older projects should run unchanged on the new device. The General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) has the standard header with 40 pins.
