Want a 4K Raspberry Pi-based Android tablet? This makes it possible

There are loads of external displays for notebooks readily available these days, most of which feature a relatively modest resolution, as large-resolution external LCDs with contact guidance are challenging to obtain.  

That may possibly be about to alter, as DFRobot has introduced its new twelve.five-inch external exhibit for laptops that not only features a 4K resolution and precise colors, but is also supports contact. The new launch also has mini-HDMI as effectively as USB-C inputs to make it much easier to attach to miniature Raspberry Pi as effectively as other one-board personal computers (SBCs) or modern-day notebooks with USB-C ports. 

As its name indicates, DFRobot’s twelve.five-inch 4K IPS Contact Display features a 3840×2160 resolution and supports a multitouch. The keep track of also features four hundred nits peak brightness and can reproduce one hundred% of the sRGB color gamut, which is in line with what modern-day notebook displays offer you.

Companion or making block?

A single of the vital promoting points of the twelve.five-inch 4K IPS Contact Display is its rich connectivity. The keep track of has a single Mini HDMI enter as effectively as two USB Sort-C connectors (for sign and electrical power) that make it appropriate with the Raspberry Pi 4B and the likes. The exhibit also has stereo speakers as effectively as a 3.five-mm audio port. 

On the software program aspect of issues, the product is appropriate equally with Linux and Home windows, but with an HDMI enter it need to be OS agnostic, so it can probably be employed even with game consoles. 

Just like tablets, the twelve.five-inch 4K IPS Contact Display comes in an aluminum chassis, but not like tablets, it is not outfitted with a protective glass (i.e., Corning Gorilla Glass), so its proprietor will have to be watchful with the device. In the meantime, the product weighs 556 grams, somewhat much more than regular tablets, but nonetheless portable. 

The DFRobot twelve.five-inch 4K IPS touschreen keep track of is now readily available for $289 (€248, £226) instantly from the business.

Incredibly, the bundle incorporates USB-C and HDMI cables, a electrical power adapter, and a protective protect – and DFRobot can even provide a Raspberry Pi module with it.
