Raspberry announced the successor of its Pi 3 low-cost computer with the Pi 4. The new low-cost computer gets several upgrades that include up to 4GB RAM, support for two 4K displays, and a Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core processor. The new processor comes with four 1.5GHz Cortex-A72 CPU cores, which is a significant upgrade over the Pi 3’s four Cortex-A53 cores.

The ports get an upgrade: the Pi 4’s power supply now uses USB-C, and two of the USB-A ports are now USB 3.0 for faster data speeds. The headphone jack and Ethernet port are back as well to the joy of many.

With all those upgrades, the Pi 4 will retain its $35(~Php 1.8k) price for the 1GB version. If you need more RAM, the 2GB and 4GB versions will cost you $45(~Php 2.4k) and $55(~Php 2.9k) respectively.
