Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ with thermal management introduced for $25

Raspberry Pi has introduced a new cheaper Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ that uses the same Broadcom 1.4GHz Quad-core processor as the high-end Model B+. It also has support for Bluetooth 4.2 as well as 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi and comes with 512MB LPDDR2 SDRAM.

It no longer has an Ethernet port and has just one USB 2.0 port instead of four. The new model comes with improved USB mass-storage booting and improved thermal management. The entire board is certified as a radio module under FCC rules, which in turn will significantly reduce the cost of conformance testing Raspberry Pi–based products.

It is powered by a 1.4GHz 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU Quad-Core processor with 512MB RAM. The company says that it will be available at a price tag of $25 (Rs.1,795 approx.). In India you can get it for about Rs. 2,150 (incl. GST).
