Raspberry Pi 4 set to arrive in stock late August/early September

The Raspberry Pi micro computer has taken a big leap forward with the launch of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. The new model features a 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU, dual monitor support at resolutions up to 4K and tiered memory options. Naturally this has resulted in high demand. After consultation with our supplier we are expecting the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B to arrive in stock between late August to early September. A more precise date will be determined as that window approaches.

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Pricing

The Raspberry Pi 4 will feature 3 different versions with tiered RAM options: 1GB, 2GB, 4GB.

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 1GB    $64.95
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 2GB    $82.95
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 4GB    $99.95

New Accessories

A new range of accessories will become available with the introduction due of the Pi 4. If upgrading from a previous model Pi there are a few changes to be aware of.

  • Power Connector: USB-C (previously USB micro-B)
  • Video: A pair of type-D (micro) HDMI connectors (previously single type-A HDMI)

Cases for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and earlier will not be suitable for the 4. However rasberrypi.org has stated the official Raspberry Pi cases (RPi3023RASP, RPi3023BG) can be adapted to fit the 4 by cutting away the plastic fins on the right-hand side and omitting one of the side panels: Raspberry Pi 4 Launch post.
