If you're on the lookout for a new Raspberry Pi, you're in luck.

The new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ has been finally released after two years of wait. The B+ uses an upgraded LAN chip from Microchip which includes support for Gigabit Ethernet. These have found their way into in schools, homes, offices and factories all over the globe. A faster processor and better connectivity options are available on the new model.

Aside from that, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ comes with support for power over Ethernet and has improved network and USB mass-storage booting.

Xiaomi will launch the Redmi 5 in India today at 3PM
The Redmi 5a Prime has a hybrid 32GB ROM and a 3GB RAM while its counterpart, the Redmi 5a houses 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM. Many of their popular models like Xiaomi Redmi 4, Mi Mix 2, Redmi Note 3 are still stuck in older Android versions.

Raspberry has just announced an update to its flagship board, the Raspberry Pi 3.

If you're a bit puzzled by all this and what you may use this for, then check out https://www.hackster.io to see some of the incredible projects others are creating. Lab tests show nearly a 25 percent performance improvement for 2.4 GHz bandwidth over the Model B. Bluetooth has also been updated to version 4.2 in place of 4.0. With these optimisations it is possible to either reach higher clock frequencies, or to run at lower voltages to reduce power consumption. It was the first product from the organization to come with 64-bit processing and integrated wireless connectivity, making it a popular option for the homebrew community. The upgraded processor results in a 15% performance improvement. According to Raspberry Pi, it's sold more than 9 million Raspberry Pi 3 units and a total of 19 million Raspberry Pis in total. As of now, the foundation has revealed no plans to discount or end production of the older models. For makers that is a very positive change as it allowed for the entire device to be certified as a radio module under FCC rules - with a significant reduction in the cost of conformance testing Raspberry Pi-based products as a knock-on effect. Another bonus is the board's co-creator Eben Upton says that the processor should be less likely to throttle its performance under heavy load-thanks to a heatspreader on top of the CPU.
