The model comes with 700MHz Broadcom BCM2835 CPU which supports 256MB RAM. The number of pins in GPIO header has been extended to 40 and has the same pinout for the initial 26 pins as its earlier model. Also, the new smoother version of SD card port has been introduced which will enable the user to insert and remove the card easily. Apart from this, the dimensions of the board have been reduced to 6.6cm * 5.6cm.
The linear regulators have been replaced with the switching ones which has lowered the power consumption and increased its efficiency. But the CSI camera port for the camera connection and DSI display port for the touch screen display are the main highlight of this model.
