Hello everyone,

sorry if I missed this information but is there any obsolescence statement for the official touch display?


Thank you and have a great day!

Hi,

I did ntoice the same, some suppliers such as Farnell, RS are saying that the Raspberry pi display is not longer manufactured and they are giving an alternative.

this is strange as the pi fundation did not change the reference and I can not find any PCN saying this...

Important : I did order the new version and the mechanic is slightly different, that cause issue for us...as the distance between back of the lens and fixing point increased....

Edit: the distance actually decreased (-1mm) , that causes an excessive stress on the lens and dissambled the sticker fixing screen and the glass.
it will for sure make a compatibility issue for all the screen enclosures.

any information available will be helpful !
