Version 19

     

    To give you some context to this post, first, meet the new Raspberry Pi 4 Computer.

    It has the same physical almost "Credit Card Size" footprint but some major changes to the I/O which could interfere with your accessory choices.

    Raspberry Pi is going through physical changes

     

    The Older Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+The NEW Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
    So what has changed?

    New USB 3 Ports and the (Now Gigabit) Ethernet Port has changed sides!

    Micro USB and Full Size HDMIDual Micro-HDMI and USB-C Type

     

    Will my old case fit the New Raspberry Pi 4?

    Fairly unlikely that your old case will fit and if it does It likely wont have I/O holes in the right places for the new Micro HDMI, USB 3, USB C and Ethernet

     

    Will I need a new charger for the Raspberry Pi 4?

    Yes. This one swap is the greatest positive, you are now less constrained and less likely to get "Brown Outs" caused by power hungry peripherals.

     

    Will my GPIO Hat work on the new Raspberry Pi?

    Very Likely! The Raspberry Pi 40Pin GPIO is built to be backwards compatible! You can double-check this here: Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Default GPIO Pinout with PoE Header

     

    Will I need a new version of the PoE hat?

    No, the PoE HAT designed for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B.
