Updated screen case for Pi4

Fri Aug 16, 2019 3:07 pm

Are there any plans for an updated official screen case that matches the new port locations of the Pi4?

At the moment it seems the only option is to get the Dremel out and remove parts of the case to make it fit, but this is not really viable for large scale deployments.

There is no official case for the RPF 7" display. That said, I think I've seen a display+Pi case for use with the Pi4B. Check the web sites that sell such cases for earlier Pis.

Newark (Element 14) is the only one I've seen that have them as "coming". I ordered a month ago and it was originally supposed to be shipped today and they have now pushed back to the end of next month. Sadly Newark seems to have serious problems of shipping items on time and notifying customers about delays. The below link is for all they have listed.

Thanks. I didn't realise it wasn't official, just seems to be the one that everyone I know is using.

I need about 20 cases for wall mounting. If I find a suitable one I'll post here.

I have plans to get me one of those for Christmas. I like that the display mounts the right way up. And I can use a Pi 4 and keep it cool. :D

Looking at buying one of these...

Anyone with first hand experience of using one. In particular using the touch screen and HDMI0 at the same time?
