The Raspberry Pi foundation released the B+ model this summer and since then we’ve expected a new A+ model to appear as well. We got the first teaser during this years TechCrunch Disrupt in London where Upton confirmed that the A+ would be arriving to replace the current A model that didn’t sell too good.

We finally got some details about the upcoming model-refresh when the website Element14 briefly listed the A+ model over the weekend before quickly taking the link down again. But not before a couple of people got the images and relevant facts from the site.

The new Raspberry Pi A+ is basically a shrunk down version of the old B model but with the improvements made on the B+ model. The old 26-pin GPIO connector will be replaced by a 40-pin connector instead, the SD card slot will be replaced by a micro SD slot instead while the overall power consumption has been optimized and reduced. The new A+ model will also support power-hungry USB devices better than the current A model.
